Scope of Work & Disciplines

Ongoing delivery of facility management services within nine Rio Tinto mine sites including mine site cleaning, grounds maintenance and crib consumables restocking. The Cleaning Services scope requires scheduled, routine, reliable service delivery 24:7 – day and night.

Specific cleaning service delivery includes dry, wet, and deep cleans, mould prevention cleans, strip and seal floor management and waste removal, with programs tailored to each individual site environment.

In addition to corrective and general cleaning services of offices, core buildings, communal toilets and crib rooms, we provide core grounds maintenance of lawns, tree pruning, trimming, planting, weed eradication and pest control.
