Leeds City College awards three-year contract to G&H Maintenance to manage new £60m Quarry Hill campus

G&H Maintenance has been appointed by Leeds City College to manage its new purpose-built £60 million campus in a two-year contract plus extension.

Based in the cultural quarter of Leeds, the Quarry Hill campus houses the School of Social Science and the School of Creative Arts.

Pre-planned, reactive and emergency call out maintenance along with electrical installation condition reports and ductwork cleaning will be delivered.

G&H Maintenance will also ensure the site is fully compliant with current regulations and issue certifications for services such as natural gas, refrigeration and water hygiene.

Director of G&H Maintenance, David Ridsdale (pictured above on the right with engineer Dave Trigg), said: “We have worked with Leeds City College for nearly a decade and last year had our contract to manage 12 of its sites extended by three years.

“This additional appointment to oversee the new Quarry Hill campus underlines the high quality work we deliver day in, day out, year after year.

“Around 3,800 students and 250 members of staff are based at the new campus so it is vital the building is always fully functional and working at its best.

“Ensuring the optimum environment for students to learn in is vital while a pre-planned maintenance regime is the most cost-effective way for the college to protect the investment in its assets.”

Key facilities at Quarry Hill campus include replica practical care suites so students studying health science and social care receive a realistic experience of their future working environment.

Creative arts students benefit from a 200-seat theatre complete with backstage technical equipment, recording and filming studios, costume workshop, dance studios, newsroom and gallery spaces.

Communal features include childcare facilities, medical areas and a café – all of the above will be managed by G&H Maintenance.
