by Brianna Crandall — May 28, 2018 — UG2, a rapidly growing provider of integrated facilities services and solutions, has signed a multi-year agreement to provide comprehensive green janitorial and ancillary services at Stanford University.
UG2 is servicing Stanford University’s academic facilities with 230 employees, working in 215 buildings, which encompass approximately 5.5 million square feet of cleanable space. UG2 says it was able to seamlessly transition within six weeks.
UG2 programs and equipment introduced at Stanford include:
- Supply chain expertise for all aspects of the facility service program in order to implement best practices, and industry-leading technology, tools and methods;
- A sustainable, limited-waste, chemical system that works independently from the public water supply;
- Floor and carpet steam-cleaning systems and equipment to sustainably restore flooring and upholstered furniture; and
- Equipment to optimize floor scrubbing and refinishing.
UG2’s Chief Executive Officer Louis J. Lanzillo commented:
We are thrilled at the opportunity to support Stanford’s commitment to sustainability through our green janitorial and ancillary services. We strive to provide the best possible environment for our clients and to be the best in our industry.
The contract was awarded by Stanford’s Land, Buildings and Real Estate department (LBRE) department, considered the operational core of the physical campus.
UG2’s ownership and senior leadership are facility service and solution focused and are committed to closely managing all aspects of the contract. As an organization, UG2 is focused on people, process, innovation and technology, and creating and executing collaborative solutions to optimize operations.
UG2 has earned what it says is an industry-leading Experience Modification Rate (EMR), an insurance industry standard that represents businesses’ claims history and safety record. UG2 says it is of the utmost importance that the company’s staff is educated and trained properly to safely implement and utilize green janitorial technology. As part of UG2’s Strong Safety Culture Training and Development Program, it provides staff with comprehensive safety training and refresher courses, management and supervisory training curriculum, line staff technical and customer training, and all mandatory state and OSHA training.
Using time-tested maintenance operations and housekeeping and grounds programs, UG2 provides tailored facilities management (FM) services for each of its customers, in order to provide the best results and meet each customer’s unique needs and priorities. UG2 says it is committed to bringing innovative solutions and FM technology to its diverse customer portfolio.
UG2 also recently signed a multi-year agreement to provide comprehensive green janitorial and ancillary services at Providence College in Providence, Rhode Island, as well as an additional multi-year agreement to provide comprehensive, integrated facilities management (IFM) services at the newly developed Cornell Tech Campus, a cutting-edge engineering campus being built on Roosevelt Island in New York City that is a joint academic venture between Cornell University and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology.
