London Bridge City contract for Principle

Principle Cleaning Services has been awarded a three-year contract with London Bridge City for cleaning and window cleaning services.

The company will provide a 24/7 cleaning operation across the iconic, 21.5-acre estate, using a dedicated workforce to deliver flexible and sustainable cleaning services.

London Bridge City has 3m sq ft of office, retail, and leisure space stretching half a mile along the riverfront between London Bridge and Tower Bridge. Its property portfolio includes No 1 London Bridge, Cottons Centre, Hay’s Galleria, More London Place and Riverside, the Unicorn Theatre, and City Hall.

Magnus MacAulay, Estate Director at London Bridge City, said: “We are delighted to welcome Principle Cleaning Services to London Bridge City as our new cleaning and environmental services partner.

“London Bridge City is a world-class estate located in the heart of London, in a prime location on the Thames. It demands the highest standards of sustainable cleaning and we look forward to working with Principle to refine the service, leveraging technology and environmentally-friendly cleaning methods, to the benefit of all stakeholders.”

Mike Darmanin, Portfolio Director Principle Cleaning Services, said: “To be awarded this contract for such a significant piece of London real estate is an immense achievement for all involved, and we are proud to add London Bridge City to our portfolio.

“Principle meets the highest levels of industry benchmarking and we were able to demonstrate that our dedicated management team and focus on collaboration, partnerships, technology and sustainability is the most effective model on the cleaning market. We are looking forward to supporting London Bridge City and are committed to developing our partnership further.”

CSSA launches Clean Start campaign

The Cleaning and Support Services Association (CSSA), a leading UK non-profit cleaning industry membership association, has launched the Clean Start campaign to encourage more people to look at the cleaning industry as a professional career choice.

The CSSA's Marketing Chair, Daniel Cross, commented: “The mission of the Clean Start campaign is simple: to change people’s perceptions of the cleaning industry. It’s not a recruitment programme, we are purely showcasing the many exciting professional career paths available, as well as the variety of businesses and their operations within the sector such as machine manufacturing, chemical production, and cleaning services.”

The Clean Start campaign aims to deliver a real insight into the career opportunities within the cleaning industry and encourage people from all backgrounds, including students, graduates and people from outside the cleaning industry, looking for a career change.

Daniel continued: “It’s unfortunate that far too many people still perceive the cleaning industry to be a low-skilled role involving nothing more than moving around a facility with a mop and bucket in hand, when the fact is it’s incredibly exciting and full of innovation.

“Inside our industry it’s second nature to discuss new innovations and operating methods, but how many people looking to get into an engineering role realise that there’s a need for their skills fixing robotic scrubber dryers? These are the areas we need to educate people about.”

With the creation of a dedicated page on their new website, the CSSA will be creating a range of free to download case studies and will be highlighting the variety of professional roles involved within businesses associated with the cleaning industry such as engineering, marketing and sales, operations and logistics, as well as cleaning operatives.

The CSSA also welcomes enquiries and case study material from organisations within the cleaning industry, regardless of whether they have CSSA membership or not.
