The Challenge

King's College London (KCL) and Bouygues Energies & Services have a longstanding relationship, dating back to 1999. We have a 25-year contract to provide Total Facilities Management for two of the University’s largest research buildings; New Hunts House and Franklin Wilkins Building. 
The two buildings provide office spaces, lecture theatres, libraries and research laboratories for students from all over the world, with up to 4000 people entering the Franklin Wilkins Building alone every day.
KCL was our first higher education venture in the UK market and as it is such a prestigious university, is a great source of pride for our team.

Our Solution

At KCL, we provide soft FM services such as cleaning, portering, waste, post room and security, and hard services such as M&E maintenance, building fabric maintenance and lifecycle management.

We have various lifecycle projects in operation across both buildings, such as:

  • An electrical project to replace the distribution panels and boards across both buildings, which were initially installed in 1999. The aim of the project is to provide fully compliant panels and boards. 
  • The refurbishment of 38 sets of toilets across the Franklin Wilkins Building, including the installation of 130 Propelair toilets which aim to significantly reduce the amount of water used for toilet flushing. Aaztec Recycloo toilet cubicles have been introduced, which are manufactured from recycled plastic. 
  • A £3m chiller replacement project in both buildings in 2017.
  • The installation of GVS Bacticell high efficiency and low energy filters in all the Air Handling Units. This provided energy savings of 23.4% (a payback of 3 months), improved air quality by 10% and increased capacity by 23%.
  • Largescale LED lighting replacements have taken place in both buildings.

As a result of these projects and energy saving initiatives, we have seen annual energy savings of just under 3,000,000 kWh per annum and a carbon emissions reduction of just under 1,200 tonnes of CO2e a year. 

A Client-Centric Approach

Bouygues participate in the King’s led ‘Fit for King’s’ programme where staff aim to deliver ‘a world-class service for a world-class University.’ As a result ,the university now has an engaged, high performing FM team with a truly customer-focused approach.
We have a “one team approach” with the client, which has been demonstrated through the joined approach in ensuring COVID secure buildings and our continual support in their sustainability goals, for example by introducing a plant register with run times to assist with energy savings. 
We keep building-users informed with what is happening on-site through project boards and building-user group meetings.
We have introduced weekly staff surgeries, where the Management Team are available to answer staff queries.
Throughout the pandemic, both buildings have remained open and operational. We have installed sanitiser points, wipe pods and signage as well as pick-up and drop-off of COVID tests across the KCL Estate.
