A new multi million pound deal to provide soft services to a Land Securities shopping centre has been secured by Europa. The three year deal, worth in excess of £2.2 million, sees Europa deliver cleaning and security to the Galleria outlet centre in Hatfield, Hertfordshire.
The 325,000 sq ft centre, which is home to over 85 shops and restaurants and an Odeon cinema with parking for 1750 vehicles, is the latest edition to Europa's retail portfolio. Europa already works in partnership with Land Securities to deliver services at Westgate shopping centre in Oxford and Princesshey in Exeter. As a result of this latest deal, 40 staff have transferred over to Europa.
Tim Stirling, the Galleria centre director, said: “We are delighted to have secured the services of Europa, our partner of choice, to bring together our one team ethos and further enhance our reputation with both customers and our occupiers.”
Bill Squires, managing director of Europa Retail, said: “The Galleria is a great addition to our existing portfolio of Land Securities centres and further expands Europa's position as the facilities management partner for the retail environment.”
