News Sponsored by Christeyns build on Swiss Laundry

partnership Christeyns is to continue its partnership with Swiss Laundry, having contributed to the creation of a new purpose-built facility in Papworth, Cambridge.

This 38,000 sq ft facility now houses some of the most technically advanced and sustainable laundry systems in Europe, and can process up to 500,000 pieces of linen per week.

Having commenced work with Swiss Camplings in 2017, assisting the upgrade of their Great Yarmouth commercial site, Christeyns was awarded this new contract to fit out and supply their latest facility in Cambridge. The new contract, which will see Christeyns supporting Swiss for

most of the coming decade, is worth several million pounds and encompasses the original agreement, making the two contracts co-terminus.

Christeyns won the original contract based on its innovative, groundbreaking Cool Chemistry, a patented innovation that combines equipment and chemistry to deliver improved whiteness and increased disinfection whilst washing at lower temperatures.

In addition, Christeyns has provided in excess of £500k worth of equipment. The latest auto-dosing equipment, Christeyns Flux Multi and Flux Star, provide dosing to the washer extractors and tunnel washer with both units integrated and controlled by a Management Information System.

Laundry X-Pert, the advanced laundry management information software (MIS), helps manage and control the cost and efficiency of the laundry wash process from one central system. This, along with Laundry Dashboard, gives real-time insight into the productivity of both staff and processes, providing updates on current productivity against targets.

Christeyns’ high tech water and energy handling equipment, including the Heat X Energo heat exchanger, allow Swiss Laundry to run a Zero Steam laundry where both water and energy are recycled. This dramatically reduces water usage per kg washed, increasing the amount of reusable water.

Christeyns’ Director, Dave Aveyard, commented: “We are delighted to further strengthen our partnership with Swiss Laundry and the Turvill family, and congratulate them on the opening of their new facility. The equipment installed at both sites has helped position Swiss Laundry as one of the most energy efficient laundry companies in Europe.”

A clean Incentive for Canary Wharf

Incentive QAS has been awarded a contract to clean One Canada Square by Canary Wharf Management.

The three-year contract is worth around £4m and Incentive QAS will also provide cleaning services for the Canary Wharf Group’s head office, also located in the building.

Incentive QAS will be responsible for cleaning all common areas, washrooms and lift lobbies of all 50 floors of the 770ft, multi-tenanted building. This includes responsibility for the lobby which is 36ft high and clad in 90,000 sq ft of marble, and also includes a restaurant and bar. Other services include waste segregation for tenants and secure shredding.

40+ full time employees will operate 24/7 to ensure that the 10,000 people who work in the building, along with

members of the public who have access to the ground floor, foyer area and basement levels, can enjoy a clean and safe environment.

This will include a dedicated periodic team, providing ongoing specialist cleaning to specific areas. An experienced manager will be onsite daily with regular support from senior management and directors.

Paul Burgoyne, Canary Wharf Group Building Manager at One Canada Square, said: “One Canada Square is Canary Wharf’s flagship building and it is home to a host of prestigious businesses. It’s vital that building cleanliness is kept to the highest standards at all times. We look forward to working with Incentive QAS, who proposed a proactive approach to meet the needs of our business.”
