Central Hall Westminster, the conference and events space in central London near to the House of Parliament, has let a contract to Cloudfm.

The company has been appointed to manage planned and reactive maintenance in a new £5 million deal, building on the existing relationship between the venue and Cloud.

In expanding its remit to a full hard FM service, Cloudfm will be working together with Central Hall Westminster to maintain and improve the standard of maintenance at the Grade II listed building.


Specialist tasks

With a team of multi-skilled engineers based permanently on-site, Cloud will use its automated workflow management systems to optimise PPM and compliance activity, as well as provide an efficient reactive service for specialist tasks.


What the client said

“The quality of our estate is of prime importance as it directly impacts the strength of our offering to customers,” said Adrian Roberts, Head of Facilities at Central Hall Westminster. “We’re pleased to have secured the services of an FM provider that can demonstrate consistency in raising quality while controlling costs, as well as understanding the specific requirements of working in a listed building environment.”

Said Jeff Dewing, CEO of Cloudfm. “Our solution focuses on improving cost control as well as reducing operating downtime. This fits perfectly with the specific needs of a business in the events industry – where premises have to look and function optimally to fulfil customers’ expectations.”
