Programmed, Australia’s largest provider of staffing, operations, and maintenance services employing around 30,000 people across Australia and New Zealand, announced it is partnering with the City of Melbourne to provide critical Building Maintenance Services across the municipality. 

Commencing on 1 October 2021, the contract covers the maintenance of buildings, facilities and relevant infrastructure across the City of Melbourne. 

Responsibilities include maintenance and repair of a mix of heritage and contemporary buildings to ensure the highest levels of amenity for residents, businesses and visitors, in one of the world’s most livable cities, and a top tourist destination.

Programmed will also follow a strict COVID-safe protocol with all its partners to help boost community confidence and enjoyment as the city re-opens for work, tourism and other activities.

Glenn Thompson, Managing Director and Group CEO of Programmed, said, “Our teams are knowledgeable, experienced and eager to deliver these important services that will help drive great experiences for the many users of the space and facilities across the City of Melbourne.

“We’re committed to providing excellence in maintenance support to a much loved and iconic council in Australia and we look forward to doing our part in bringing this great city of Melbourne back to life”.

Programmed also provides services for iconic Melbourne locations like Melbourne Airport, the Shrine of Remembrance, the Melbourne Cricket Ground and the University of Melbourne, and is deeply woven into the fabric of Melbourne’s community.

Programmed ranks in the top ten private employers with over 30,000 staff who work across customer sites in public housing, education, health, infrastructure, manufacturing, transport and mining sectors in Australia and New Zealand.
