Cleaning contract awarded at London landmark

Principle Cleaning Services Ltd has won the cleaning contract for the Lloyd’s of London building at One Lime Street. Lloyd's is the world's leading insurance market where members join together as syndicates to insure and reinsure risk, conducting business in over 200 countries and territories worldwide.

With Principle already cleaning its neighbour, 30 St Mary Axe (The Gherkin), staff at Lloyd’s will be responsible for the daily cleaning which will mainly be done in the evening with a day clean presence and will include housekeeping duties and cleaning of the ground floor.

Housed in the award-winning modern building in the City of London, Lloyd’s is a gigantic metal building with all its structures exposed and the lift, being a glass cube located on the exterior of the building, shows amazing views of London.

Lloyds earliest home and its origins lay in the more modest surroundings of Edward Lloyd’s 17th century coffee house but in 1978 the committee commissioned the architect Richard Rogers (now Lord Rogers of Riverside) to redevelop the Leadenhall site which was officially opened in 1986 by The Queen.
