Pareto FM wins hard FM deal with The Design Museum

Facilities management specialist Pareto FM has been appointed by The Design Museum to provide hard services at its new venue in Kensington, London. 

The Design Museum is devoted to contemporary architecture and design and its work encompasses all elements of design, including fashion, product and graphic design.

Since it opened 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. It won the European Museum of the Year Award 2018

The Design Museum’s relocation to Kensington, west London, 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, the Heritage Lottery Fund supported the project with a grant of £4.9m and Arts Council England awarded a capital grant of £3m.

Brian Reeves, Head of Facilities at The Design Museum commented: “The expectations of colleagues entering the workplace have changed rapidly over recent years and are expected to change further over the coming years, the method and approach to work is being actively redefined by a generation who are more connected through technology than before and interface with the physical workspace in a new way.

“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.”
