Sodexo in €250M PPP

On-site services provider Sodexo Ireland will deliver facilities management and technical services in Dublin, Cork, Kerry and Westmeath as part of the €250 million Higher Education PPP project recently announced by Minister Simon Harris.

It is Sodexo’s largest PPP project in Ireland to date. Once construction is completed, Sodexo will be central to the delivery of a suite of facilities management and technical services on six new buildings at Technological University (TU) campuses in Tallaght, Blanchardstown, Tralee, Athlone and Cork and at the Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT) in Dun Laoghaire.

Those services will include contract management, building and asset management, energy and utilities management, waste management, health and safety, cleaning and security. Sodexo already delivers integrated facilities management (IFM) for the Central and East Quads at the TU Dublin campus in Grangegorman, in addition to full IFM services at one primary level and nine second level PPP schools throughout the country.

Deirdre Saunders, Divisional Director, Schools and Universities, Sodexo Ireland, said:

“For Sodexo, people are at the heart of everything we do, and our objective is to deliver first-class, responsive and flexible facilities management services to create a welcoming environment that reflects positively on each campus and improves the quality of life for students and faculty alike.”

Sodexo Ireland is part of the Enbarr Partnership contracted for the project. The other partners are Macquarie Capital Group Ltd and JJ Rhatigan & Company.
