CBRE in British Library Win

CBRE Global Workplace Solutions (GWS) has secured a four-year contract to provide facilities management services for British Library’s estate. 

The contract includes the client’s sites in St Pancras, London and Boston Spa, West Yorkshire.

The British Library is the national library of the United Kingdom. The collection currently holds over an estimate of 150 million items including artefacts that span across nearly three thousand years ago. With around three million new items added to the collection each year, the library’s portfolio includes everything from books, newspapers, sound recordings, patents, prints and drawings, maps and manuscripts. Some of the most famous treasures includes the Magna Carta, George Handel’s Messiah and Jane Austen’s personal notebooks.

CBRE claims the British Library will sit under the Heritage business unit, which specialises in hard facilities management for listed buildings such as the British Museum, National Gallery, The Natural History Museum. 

Patrick Dixon, Head of Estates and Facilities commented: “‘During the competitive tender process, we felt that CBRE demonstrated their capacity to be the custodian for the Library’s estate, and impressed us with their vision for providing facilities management services to the Library in a refreshing and innovative way. We are truly excited for this new chapter with CBRE and are confident that our partnership will see the Library benefitting from world class FM which will help to create an optimal user experience for all visitors and staff.”
