Bruntwood venture to clean Liverpool Science Park
Unify by Bruntwood is a facilities management business set up by the property firm that has already secured £8m of contracts, the latest at Liverpool Science Park
A facilities management business set up by property firm Bruntwood has secured a contract to providing cleaning services at Liverpool Science Park (LSP).
Unify by Bruntwood will begin working on the contract this month and will deliver its services to LSP’s common spaces, office and laboratory spaces across all three of the its purpose-built innovation centres.
Based in the city’s Knowledge Quarter, Liverpool Science Park spans 120,000 sq ft and is home to more than 60 STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) organisations. Unify will undertake cleaning across the buildings’ shared spaces and common areas.
Launched by the Bruntwood Group in 2020, Unify has already secured 30 new contracts worth more than £8m in revenue in its first six months of trading. Its 350-strong in-house team now delivers cleaning services to more than 1m sq ft of property.
When combined with its window cleaning, specialist and technical services, Unify services a complete portfolio of over 5m sq ft within commercial and public sector offices, retail, healthcare, industrial and logistical environments.
In Liverpool specifically, Unify already works with Downtown in Business, Bond Turner, Walton’s Insurance Brokers, and Keller Lenkner UK. Simon Durbin, director for soft services at Unify, said: “More than 70% of our workforce have transferred to us from existing FM suppliers, so we have a wealth of the industry’s best talent under our roof.
“But even more importantly, our strategy for delivery is based on us having been recipients of FM services in the past. We know the pain points, we know the shortcomings and we launched Unify to offer something different.
“In particular, we use technology and data-led reporting to provide ‘smart’, real-time information on our customers’ service delivery so we can adapt in line with their fluctuating needs.”
