CBRE has been reappointed to provide mechanical and electrical maintenance services to the National Gallery in London.

Despite painting a good picture of itself at the gallery for  fifteen years now, CBRE still had to go through a competitive tender exercise to grab a further five year extension - with a possible two more years on top of that.

 The appropriately named Steve Vandyke, Head of Building & Facilities at The National Gallery said: “CBRE continue to provide a well managed, service, with an emphasis on continuous improvement. They have always shown a deep understanding of our specific environment and the fundamental requirement to protect and maintain our highly valuable paintings and artefacts.”

Having a Paddy

Bookmakers Paddy Power Betfair has gambled on ISS to provide technical services, including planned and reactive maintenance, to its property portfolio including over 600 retail shops and service centres across the UK and Ireland.
