Design Museum Contract

Company News, Contract Awards, EMEA, Service Provider News
Pareto FM has been retained as hard services contractor by the Design Museum, the world’s leading museum devoted to contemporary architecture and design which is located in Kensington, London.

 

Announcing the contract, Brian Reeves, Head of Facilities at the Design Museum, said:

"The expectations of colleagues entering the workplace have changed rapidly over recent years and are expected to change further over the coming years, as the method and approach to work is actively redefined by a generation who are more connected through technology than before.

 

"When the opportunity to review our maintenance supply chain came about, we seized the chance to  focus on cultural synergy and service agility.  Pareto FM were a perfect fit and natural choice for the museum due to their passion for engineering excellence and contemporary management culture."

 

Andrew Hulbert, managing director of Pareto FM, added:

"This contract is a huge deal to Pareto FM. We are exceptionally proud to be working alongside one of the best public attractions in the world.

 

"The Design Museum led an innovative but thorough tender process and set the bar exceptionally high. We look forward to demonstrating how our unique model can entirely serve the needs of the Design Museum. We look forward to the long term relationship."

 

 

About the Design Museum

Named "European Museum of the Year" in 2016, the Design Museum's work encompasses all elements of design, including fashion, product and graphic design.

 

Since opening its doors in 1989, the museum has displayed everything from an AK-47 to high heels designed by Christian Louboutin. It has staged over 100 exhibitions, welcomed over five million visitors and showcased the work of some of the world’s most celebrated designers and architects including Paul Smith, Zaha Hadid, Jonathan Ive, Miuccia Prada, Frank Gehry, Eileen Gray and Dieter Rams. On 24 November 2016, The Design Museum relocated to Kensington, west London. Leading architect John Pawson has converted the interior of a 1960s modernist building to create a new home for the Design Museum giving it three times more space in which to show a wider range of exhibitions and significantly extend its learning programme.

 

The Design Museum’s relocation to Kensington was made possible through the generosity of major donors, trusts and foundations, statutory bodies and corporate partners as well as donations from many individual donors and supporters, including all Design Museum Trustees.

 

Thanks to National Lottery players in the UK, the Heritage Lottery Fund supported the project with a grant of £4.9 million and Arts Council England awarded a capital grant of £3 million.
