Facilities services provider Aston Services Group (ASG) has been appointed cleaning and security services provider to Edmonton Green Shopping Centre. The flagship centre owned by Crosstree Real Estate sits inside the M25 in North London and is undergoing a programme of refurbishment, redevelopment and rebranding.
ASG was awarded the contract, which is now its largest single site, by specialist property management company Ashdown Phillips. The centre boasts over 150 retail units, over 1000 car parking spaces, a bustling market square and a mix of retail and departmental stores and covers over 26 acres.
Marie Kyriacou-Edwards, Operations Manager at Edmonton Green, commented, “We like ASG’s empathetic approach and their flexible management and operational teams. The fact that ASG provide both cleaning and security under one roof promotes a ‘joined up’ way of thinking and I believe ASG’s input will be vital in the successful evolvement of Edmonton Green and it’s reinforcement as the hub of the community.”
Alistair Clayton, Sales and Marketing Director at ASG, said, “We were naturally delighted to be awarded this scheme. This is a pivotal award for ASG as we look to further cement our presence in the south east as part of our organic growth nationally.
The highly committed and proud team at Edmonton Green number over 60 and the changes that we are introducing are a really good fit with Ashdown Phillips’ own forward thinking approach to managing the centre and providing the very best customer experience possible.
“We have implemented a number of initiatives including new uniforms for the team in line with the centre rebranding, significant 6 figure investment into new fit for purpose capital equipment, improved electronic patrol systems and a fresh, much more hands on approach to team management as we have brought both services lines together under a ‘one team’ ethos and approach.’’
James Wheeler, Relationship & Major Business Development Director at ASG added, “It is great to be a part of the regeneration of Edmonton Green – the future is indeed exciting! The team that has been put together, both locally and regionally, I believe, is ideal for the shopping centre and will play an important part in the development of the customer experience at Edmonton Green in support of the fantastic work which both Ashdown Phillips and the owners are undertaking in re-invigorating and enhancing its reputation and strength as a community centric centre.”
