21st century facilities for 18th century buildings

Julius Rutherfoord has won a cleaning contract with Howard de Walden Estates to maintain a number of heritage buildings across 92 acres of Marylebone, central London. The Howard de Walden Estate, whose deep historic connections to Marylebone date back to around 1710, is the freehold owner of most of the buildings. It manages and leases properties to residential, office, medical, and retail sectors across an area that extends from Marylebone High Street in the west to Portland Place in the east and from Wigmore Street in the south to Marylebone Road in the north.

Carefully nurtured by the Howard de Walden Estate, it is an attractive and welcoming neighbourhood, and consists of Georgian architecture, including buildings designed by the Adam brothers and John Nash, situated on a simple grid of wide, attractive streets.

Julius Rutherfoord has been appointed to manage the cleaning of common areas and medical practices' waiting rooms across 18 properties in Harley Street, Wimpole Street, and Devonshire Place. Chris Parkes, operations director at Julius Rutherfoord, said: “The creation of 21st century facilities within 18th century buildings is a hugely demanding and specialised task, and one at which the estate excels. The estate was looking for a London specialist with the same high standards. We are delighted to have been chosen for this prestigious contract and to be working with the estate to provide the best possible service for its valued tenants.”
