Facilities First has been appointed the cleaning service provider of Sydney’s new Bankwest Stadium from 2019 onwards.
The 30,000-seat Bankwest Stadium in Parramatta, opened its doors to the public with a Community Open Day last month and has already hosted sporting events and a series of business, community and cultural events.
Facilities First employs more than 1300 direct staff and provides cleaning, maintenance, and facility management services to more than 3000 sites across government, health and aged care, hospitality, venues and events, commercial and retail.
Facilities First CEO Ben Bayot said of the partnership: “We are delighted to provide facilities to Bankwest Stadium as it connects us not only to a world-class venue, but enables us to make a difference to the Western Sydney community.”
Tim Brady, senior manager of venues operations at Bankwest Stadium said: “Following a rigorous procurement process, Facilities First Australia has been selected from a group of highly qualified and experienced cleaning service providers to manage the cleaning services of Bankwest Stadium.
“The new cleaning team from Facilities First formed an integral part of the wider stadium operating team and managed the early intense period of operation with calmness and capability.”
More than 30 sport and entertainment events are already confirmed for the stadium, with more soon to be announced. The stadium will also host hundreds of additional meetings, functions and community events, with more than 600,000 people expected through the gates in its first nine months of operation.
