City window cleaning contract awarded

Specialist Window Cleaning (SWC), part of Incentive FM Group, has been chosen to provide services at 41 Lothbury, which is managed by Cushman and Wakefield, in the heart of the City of London. Under the terms of the agreement SWC will be responsible for cleaning all the external windows of the seven floor serviced office building every other month, in addition to a six-month and annual deep clean.

Due to the building retaining its traditional façade of the Grade II listed building and many of it original features, SWC will be using a combination of window cleaning methods including the use of eye bolts to ensure that the small intricate windows are kept to a high standard of cleanliness. This will be supplemented by a team using a small internal and external cradle. All work will be undertaken at weekends to ensure that there is no disruption to the operation of the building.

Anton Beck, building manager at 41 Lothbury, said: “This is a highly prestigious building which is home to some of the world's leading businesses. It is extremely important that its stunning façade is kept clean and, having worked with SWC previously, I am certain they will deliver the exceptional standards we require.”

Gareth Thomas, operations director at SWC, said: “This is a complex operation which requires a range of window cleaning techniques to ensure that this beautiful Grade II listed building is kept looking its best at all times. Our proven experience in cleaning this type of property means that our skilled team is able to deliver high levels of cleanliness whilst driving down costs.”
