For Incredible Impact

Keeping your schools running smoothly and safely is a seamless experience with the support of Aramark Integrated Facilities Management (IFM) services.

From cleaning programs that protect occupant health to maintenance and engineering solutions that protect your bottom-line, our facilities management is rooted in innovation, technical expertise and a people-first approach.

We go above and beyond to offer dynamic solutions that drive efficiency, improve your facilities’ performance and help keep students safe. Our team is an extension of yours – an invested partner ready to support you in your commitment to your schools, students, teachers and staff.

Here are some of the ways IFM services can make your district exceptional, so you can focus on what matters most — student success.

Safety As the First Priority

IMPACT — Protect your students and staff with a focus on safety first, above all.

People are at the heart of all we do. Our commitment is to provide and sustain the cleanest and safest classrooms, hallways, gymnasiums and dining areas. Have peace of mind in your partnership with Aramark that your students and school communities are cared for and protected.

Safety in schools covers a wide range of issues, from healthy cleaning to indoor air quality to building access. For each challenge, we offer data-driven solutions that provide peace of mind for parents, teachers and students alike.


Business Intelligence for Smarter Schools

IMPACT — Make data-driven decisions that improve service delivery and reduce operating costs.

Access to data and real-time insights is changing how schools buildings can be managed. Aramark’s AIWX™ Connect helps you create safer, smarter learning environments by drawing together a suite of business intelligence and real-time data tools for your schools. A wide range of monitors and sensors gives you unprecedented, actionable insights into everything from door monitoring to leak and vapor detection to indoor air quality monitoring. 

Combined with Aramark’s technical and operational expertise, your schools’ spaces and systems are optimized to work together seamlessly. Data-driven business intelligence reduces operational risks and lowers maintenance costs while creating better teaching and learning environments.

At Three Rivers (OR) School District, for example, AIWX™ Connect helped avoid costly repairs that would have impacted student wellbeing. In one instance, the sensors detected water in the gymnasium over a holiday break. A water line had burst and, if the issue had gone undetected, would have caused an estimated $70,000 in damage.


Tailored In-House Engineering Solutions

IMPACT — Address complex school building challenges with a full spectrum of technical expertise.

In addition to day-to-day facilities management support, our team is ready to respond and address your more complex needs with highly specialized, technical expertise. Our delivery model is unique in that our Engineering Solutions division  becomes an extension of your team.  Clients have immediate access to a broad group of highly specialized technical expertise. 

Across energy management, mechanical systems operation, construction, commissioning, strategic planning and other critical services, we deliver thoughtful, strategic solutions that address both short-term and long-term issues.

From assessing current building conditions to developing indoor air quality improvement strategies, Aramark consistently completes projects that surpass expectations.

Energy Management

IMPACT — Use energy more efficiently, reducing consumption and improving your bottom line.

Optimizing your schools’ energy consumption can be an untapped opportunity to reduce costs and achieve savings. Our Engineering Solutions team develops energy management programs to meet the programmatic and financial needs of each district.  From performance contracting to operator training to student education and engagement programs, we construct solutions that are embraced by administrations and communities.

Energy management has measurable impacts. In our work with Providence Public School District, for example, we helped achieve over $30 million in savings while raising their average Energy Star score by 18 percent.

Innovations That Create Healthier Environments

IMPACT — Exceed health and wellness expectations with leading-edge technology.

Our commitment to continuous innovation drives improvements that create healthier environments. We help you leverage the latest tools to operate more efficiently, providing safer and more secure environments.

Robotic cleaning technology, remote monitoring systems, UV air disinfection and human-centric lighting systems are just some of the ways our tech-forward solutions are specifically designed to fit your needs.

For instance, we worked with the McKinney (TX) Independent School District to deploy an innovative solution for two challenges: heightened attention to school cleanliness in the post-COVID era and labor shortages. By bringing in robotic floor cleaning machines that operate overnight, schools in the district benefited from consistently clean floors each morning while freeing existing cleaning staff to focus on tasks in high traffic areas. The increased sanitization of floors also resulted in a net reduction in cost per square foot of cleaning.

Demand-Driven Services

IMPACT — Maximize facilities management investment with flexible solutions.

We know that your needs are not static. From maintenance backlogs to space utilization issues, K-12 institutions are facing a host of challenges. That’s why we embrace a demand-driven approach to facilities management that maximizes your resources by delivering services when and where needed. By leveraging data from your spaces and equipment in real-time, we deliver adaptable solutions that address your needs as they shift.

We embrace this demand-driven approach to facilities management that maximizes resources.

From smart staffing schedules based on real-time maintenance needs, to cleaning, heating and cooling based on utilization, our solutions are tailored to save you money and time. For the Council Rock (PA) School District, this meant establishing a plan prioritizing projects based on energy and cost mitigation, ultimately resulting in nearly $1.4 million in savings.
