Canary Wharf Management has awarded Incentive FM Group’s specialist cleaning arm a three-year contract, worth around £4 million, at One Canada Square.
Under the terms of the deal Incentive QAS will be responsible for the cleaning of all common areas, washrooms and lift lobbies across all 50 floors of the 770 ft multi-tenanted building. This includes responsibility for the lobby which is 36 feet (11m) high and clad in 90,000 square feet (8,000 m2) of marble and has a restaurant and bar. Other services include all waste segregation for the building tenants plus secure shredding.
A team of 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 general public that 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 which will provide ongoing specialist cleaning to specific areas. A highly experienced manager will be onsite daily with regular support from senior management and directors of Incentive QAS.
Incentive QAS will also be providing a range of cleaning services for the Canary Wharf Group head office which is located in the building.
Paul Burgoyne, Canary Wharf Group Building Manager at One Canada Square, said: “One Canada Square is Canary Wharf’s flag ship building and it is home to a host of prestigious businesses. It is vital that the building cleanliness is kept to the highest standards at all times. It is a challenging operation with a high footfall and has quality finishes throughout. We look forward to working with Incentive QAS’ who proposed a proactive approach to meet the needs of our business.”
