The FM newsletter is sent to all employees working in Biomedicum about twice a semester and includes news from the Facility Management. 

The days are finally getting longer and spring almost made it... and then it turned all white again.

At FM we are gearing up for a number of new projects this spring. In view of the upcoming cycling season we have cleaned the changing rooms and lockers on floor 2. Next in line is the bicycle garage. Dates will be announced in due time.

We would like welcome our new employees and we are especially looking forward to opening the Supply Center, now as a physical store.

Happy reading!

Head of Facility Management in Biomedicum
