Principle Cleaning Services has scooped the prestigious cleaning contract for The Shard at London Bridge Quarter, the new commercial district emerging on London’s South Bank.
Principle will work in partnership with London Bridge Quarter Estate Management, the dedicated on-site service team, and will be wholly responsible for the housekeeping, cleaning, external estate cleaning, waste management and pest control.
The Shard is at the heart of London Bridge Quarter and is the newest landmark addition to London’s skyline standing at 310metres high. The tallest building in Western Europe, The Shard is a vertical city containing offices, international restaurants, 5-star Shangri-La Hotel, an exclusive collection of residences and the capital’s highest viewing galleries – The View from The Shard.
The contract also covers The Place, a new headquarters development also at London Bridge Quarter, which at 17 storeys and 428,000 sq. ft it boasts large floor plates and a landscaped roof terrace with spectacular views of London.
Douglas Cooke, Chief Executive at Principle Cleaning Services Ltd, said: “This [The Shard] is the most pioneering building in London and a real milestone for the company to have won the contract. I am extremely proud to be associated with it and everyone at the company is excited at the prospect of working in partnership with London Bridge Quarter at The Shard and The Place.”
The development has transformed London Bridge Station to the highest standard of international transport design delivering a new bus station and train station concourse.
