Contract cleaning and FM specialist Nviro has successfully won the retender for the Associated British Ports Southampton (ABP Southampton) cleaning contract. The contract, worth over £200,000 per year, has been awarded for a further three years.
The port at Southampton is the largest cruise terminal in the UK and houses myriad different buildings from office environments, freight terminals, distribution compounds, fruit terminals, security boxes, toilets, and cruise ship terminals which over 1.2 million passengers pass through every year.
Dating from the 11th century, the port is the 10th largest in the world and now takes the form of an international dock with four large cruise ship terminals, some of which are a quarter of a mile in length. The port itself is spread across 294 hectares with a reserve of nearly 324 hectares for future expansion. ABP Southampton is world renowned and this reputation relies heavily on the cleaning that takes place so that it can continue to function to its full potential.
The cleaning is undertaken by 22 permanent and eight casual cleaning operatives, a dedicated contract manager and a service manager. With such varied environments the cleaning schedule is suited to fit each one individually, from the cleaning of offices in normal working hours, to the cleaning of terminals which can be a seven-day operation at peak times when up to 60 ships can be docking during one month.
Having retained the contract, Nviro will continue to provide a world class service to ABP for a further three years.
