IPC Media chooses Principle Cleaning
Principle Cleaning Services is continuing to add prestigious contracts to its growing portfolio of media companies and has recently won a three year contract for daily office cleaning for IPC Media's landmark building, Blue Fin Building.
IPC Media produces over 60 iconic media brands, most of which are based at Blue Fin Building. Eight tenant companies are also housed there.
Blue Fin Building is an architectural statement to match its world-famous neighbour, Tate Modern - and gets its name from the 2,000 blue aluminum fins that cover the building's façade. The fins, manufactured in Poland, have a metallic finish that changes the building's appearance when viewed from different angles. Specifically placed to reflect the sun at different parts of the day, the fins provide constant shade inside the building.
Within the contract, the London sustainable contract cleaning company, Principle Cleaning Services, will be responsible for the cleaning of the purpose-built 12 floor building with central atrium. Over 35 Principle Cleaning Services' staff will be on hand to carry out daily office cleaning including washrooms, windows, reception areas, floors and the internal carpets.
Principle Cleaning worked with the client to review the manner in which the carpets are vacuumed and new, innovative carpet cleaning equipment has been introduced. This includes a state of the art ride on battery vacuum machine. This will provide a better overall standard of cleaning, generating higher productivity and thus requiring fewer hours to get the job done. These newly 'spare' hours have been reinvested into other areas of the contract.
"As a high profile media business, it was important for us to choose a cleaning company with experience in dealing with prestigious and high specification buildings," says Steve Fox, Head of Facilities at IPC Media. "We were very impressed with the innovations with regard to new technology and cleaning methods as well as Principle Cleaning's staff training programme. The company has impressed us with its dedicated and experienced management team."
