Our experience and reputation as one of the UK's leading independent service providers to shopping centres has secured a prestigious cleaning contract, covering over 70 locations within the South of England that also includes commercial buildings.
The mobilisation of this contract required a phased occupation in various regional areas, using dedicated project management to affect a seamless handover.
To complement the regular daily cleaning service, our in-house special projects division provides a comprehensive list of periodic programmes to enhance the perception of high level areas and glazing, as part of our complete package to our clients.
Managing the success of this contract requires us to maintain and improve, through constant auditing and communication, innovative recommendations in techniques and computer based software to meet the most discerning of clients.
Constant auditing of the service delivery is monitored, through portable devices that incorporate quality reports, by dedicated management teams, who are empowered with decision-making when communicating with Facilities and Centre Management.
A major emphasis is placed on the public circulation areas of shopping malls and office buildings to ensure that the correct Health and Safety procedures are being applied, environmental awareness of cleaning products, and supervision of our daily routines, to create a safe and clean ambience for the public.
The award of this prestigious contract, initially in December 2000, which covered The South of England and Wales, was extended nationally in December 2005 to cover over 120 locations from Scotland to the South Coast.
The logistics of this multi location contract required a local point of communication combined with divisional offices based strategically throughout the UK to enable our management team to support the business and staff on a daily basis.

The complexities of coordinating regular early morning and service cleaning staff, in addition to specialist cleaning services, to carry out the daily and periodic maintenance of their establishments is not without its challenges, and are clearly focused on customer experience and cleaning standards.
