Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) February 17, 2011
UGL Services, a division of UGL Limited (ASX: UGL), today announced that it recently signed a three-year contract with Mirvish Production Theatres to provide custodial services for the organization's venues here in the Toronto theatre district.
The properties range from the 101-year-old Royal Alexandra Theatre, the oldest continuously operating legitimate theatre in North America, to the Princess of Wales Theatre, a modern 2,000-seat venue able to host large productions and headliners. The contract also covers the Canon and Panasonic theatres.
Under the contract, UGL Services cleans the main lobbies, back stage dressing rooms, seating and public areas before and after shows, and provides matron and porter services during performances. The company also maintains pedestrian areas around the theatres.
"We were seeking a company that has the expertise and flexibility to maintain clean, inviting settings for the thousands of people who visit our properties," said Mirvish Production Theatres General Properties Manager Ron Jacobson. "We found that UGL Services has the reputation and the ability to meet the unique demands presented by our theatres."
The properties require specialized services. "In addition to our normal portfolio of services, we bring in extra help to prepare for and staff major events," explained UGL Services Vice President Canada Operations Earl Bannister. "On a more routine basis we are charged with tailoring our services for each venue, such as preserving the historic brass details at the Royal Alexandra and Canon."
