Derwent FM, as part of the Civitas consortium, has been chosen as the preferred bidder for delivering facilities management services on a major student accommodation project at the University of York.

 

The company will deliver a range of FM services for some 1,400 bedrooms on the University’s Heslington East Campus over the next 50 years in a contract worth about £1.5 million a year.

 

Derwent will work with Equitix, which leads the consortium and which is involved in similar student schemes.

 

The win strengthens Derwent’s presence in the city of York, where it is already contracted to maintain some further 1,950 beds within the Heslington East Campus.
