A clean campus not only adds to the appeal of your institution and fosters pride, but is also essential to keep your community healthy and safe. It’s why we go above and beyond traditional cleaning and janitorial services, combining science and art, to maintain cleaner, safer and environmentally friendly living and learning spaces.
Take, for example, our award-winning Blue Cleaning™ Program, an environmentally friendly approach that electrically activates tap water to safely clean or sanitize surfaces, floors and carpets. It eliminates the need for expensive products, harmful chemicals and unnecessary packaging across campuses, resulting in a healthier, environmentally friendly campus environment. It also happens to be the safest form of cleaning for custodians, promoting employee well-being and improving morale.
Our commitment to excellent custodial service has even been recognized by ISSA — the worldwide cleaning industry association — as the first company serving higher education, to earn the coveted Cleaning Industry Management Standards (CIMS) Certification and CIMS-Green Building Certification, both with honors. Our program complies with LEED-EB, LEED-O&M, as well as AASHE STARS program certifications.
At Aramark, we identify and address your needs before they arise. Our predictive maintenance approach identifies system and operational issues and equipment failures before they occur. We also develop customized strategies to minimize deferred maintenance as well as maintenance backlogs and deferrals.
We combine cutting-edge technology and processes with highly skilled, certified professionals to decrease any operational down time and increase satisfaction across campus.
Our highly technical operations staff is supported by an Engineering Solutions team that includes more than 110 Professional Engineers, Certified Energy Managers, LEED Accredited Professionals, Certified Commissioning Professionals, Registered Architects, and Project Managers, as well as experts in building maintenance, systems and operation, you can be assured we have the knowledge and expertise to address any of your campus’ facility needs.
Our innovation and service expertise coupled with the knowledge we have earned serving more campuses than any other facilities services provider means we’re equipped to extend the life of your equipment, cut costs, decrease equipment failure and down time and deliver stellar service.
Campus appearance plays an important role in the applicant decision-making process. Students want to be in a living and learning environment that fosters inspiration and pride. We want that, too.
Our staff brings the highest level of technical skill and a caring customer service approach, delivering campuses that are impeccably maintained and support student satisfaction.
Our grounds management programs create well-manicured green spaces and outdoor settings, invoke a sense of community and enhance the appeal and image of campuses to support recruitment and retention efforts.
Our approach is based on a passion to be holistic stewards of the environment. Our industry-leading Green ThreadTM platform ensures that your campus will have the most practical, advanced and environmentally sensitive solutions available. We also engage students to create a campus community that has the same passion about the environment as we do.
Colleges and universities are expected to be at the forefront of innovation and are responsible for nurturing the next generation of thinkers. More than ever, they are in need of a partner who brings the same commitment to strategic thinking. We believe that innovative solutions, coupled with strong asset planning, optimization and preservation, are integral elements to creating the campus of the future.
Our hands-on staff — including Professional Engineers, Certified Energy Managers, LEED Accredited Professionals, Certified Commissioning Professionals, Registered Architects, and Project Management Professionals, Building System Operators and Financial Managers— work together to develop solutions that enhance your overall building performance, comfort and reliability.
From Energy Management and Procurement, to Capital Project Management, Building Commissioning and Strategic Planning, our deep in-house engineering capability is second to none. We deliver highly technical as well as practical solutions to meet your campus-wide needs.
No matter your energy-related goals, we can help you develop a strategic approach to decrease costs and increase efficiency. Whether you hope to save financially, address your infrastructure needs or elevate your environmental responsibility efforts, we work with you to develop customizable solutions for your sustainable energy and campus infrastructure needs.
Our unique understanding and expertise in engineering, systems design, construction, and facilities operations ensure that the owner’s interests are protected at every stage of the process. Our commissioning experts are involved from the initial design stage through turnover. We verify that your new or renovated building meets the design intent and operates as efficiently as possible.
We also work to prevent unnecessary capital costs associated with improperly designed mechanical equipment and provide comprehensive systems training of your maintenance and operations staff.
Our project management team will verify that the planning, design, construction and turnover of a new or renovated building will remain on task, on time, and on budget. We have managed more than 630 projects, including new construction, as well as environmentally sensitive and time-challenged renovation projects. Our unique capabilities in planning, construction, engineering, systems design, turn-key design build and facility operations ensure unmatched results.
We comprehensively evaluate all building systems (architectural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, etc.) to identify the extent of any known or potential deferred maintenance exposures. Our facility condition assessment will help you identify the extent of these exposures and provide you with a customized software tool to manage them. We also help you develop strategic solutions to reduce backlogs and assist in approval of funding.

Building Information Modeling (BIM), a 3D virtual modeling software, has long helped architects, engineers and construction teams visualize building projects to identify potential design, construction or operational issues. Now, BIM is moving into facilities management on college campuses to increase productivity and lower risks.
