The University of Huddersfield opened its new Student Central Building in January 2014. It is home to the Students’ Union and support services. It also offers a state-of-the-art sports centre and gym, which includes two squash courts, an eight court sports hall, a gym that is kitted out with Technogym ARTIS technology and two dance studios.
The Students’ Union offers food outlets including a Starbucks, Discovery Bay, Twists Pasta, and a Costa Coffee, together with a new shop and meeting facilities for students and staff. The ground floor alone accommodates up to 1,000 people! The first floor offers conference facilities for internal and external visitors.
It’s an exciting time for the University of Huddersfield; it became the Times’ “Higher Education University of the Year” in November 2013.
Lee Stephenson, ICS Business Development Director, said: “This is a fabulous new contract for ICS. We won the contract through a competitive tender process late in 2013, with an early 2014 start date. We have our team working there around the clock to mobilise the contract and train new employees.”
“We advertised new cleaning positions in early January, and have been inundated with applications. We’re delighted to welcome so many new employees to Independent Cleaning Services, and to have won this contract to expand our existing portfolio, providing contract cleaning to the education sector.”
