The Brunswick Shopping Centre - London

Sector:

Background

Proceed Solutions were invited to tender for the cleaning and associated services of this grade II listed residential and shopping centre in Bloomsbury, Camden. The Brunswick offers a wide range of retail, entertainment and dining experiences. This property has a central open-air shopping mall, car parking facilities and cinema. We are pleased to announce the successful award of this contract for two years.

Challenges

The high footfall associated with this popular shopping mall brings additional challenges for cleaning contractors. This project required daily deep cleaning of the public areas as well as routine maintenance. The work had to be done to the highest standards while minimising disruption to the public. We were also required to retrain the existing staff in a range of skills including housekeeping, environmental regulations plus health and safety procedures.

Solutions:

  • A staff re-training program was developed and implemented to bring existing staff up to Proceed Solutions exacting standards.

  • We appointed an on-site manager with the appropriate management and motivation skills needed to get the best out of the cleaning and maintenance teams.

  • Regular employee appraisals, coaching and support were implemented to ensure that all frontline staff took a proactive approach to their role.

  • We developed and delivered innovative, cost-effective solutions without compromising on the quality of work.

Here’s what our client said

Mark and the team are responsible for the entire Centre, which I believe is the best testament to their ability to consistently meet our high standards. Having managed millions of square feet of retail property, we understand there will always be problems when housekeeping is held to a high standard. One of Proceed Solution’s strengths is their ability to keep problems to an absolute minimum and to act quickly to resolve any problems that do come up. In my experience, Mark and Proceed Solutions are always determined to meet or exceed our high expectations. At this point, the Brunswick Centre is enjoying an almost “worry-free” relationship, one that is producing for us the high standard of cleaning services we expect within a Central London location. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Proceed Solutions.
