M25 Extra Services ready for business

KM Cleaning Services has successfully completed its builders cleaning contract with BAM Construction at the newly built motorway services, Extra Services in Cobham, Surrey, on the M25. The services, which opened earlier this month, is now one of the largest and busiest facilities of it kind in the UK located midway between London’s two major airports, Heathrow and Gatwick.

From specialist floor, high level and steel cleaning to windows, carpet and washroom services, KM Cleaning Services’ specialist team of cleaners helped transform the 60 acre site to a pristine condition, leaving a lasting professional finish, using the best available techniques operated to the highest industry standards.

Kevin Rice, director of KM Cleaning Services, said: “KM Cleaning is proud to be a strategic part of the Extra Motorway Services project. BAM Construction is a fantastic company to add to our portfolio of clients and the contract is testament to how well regarded our services have become.”

The £25 million project sees the creation of a new motorway service area which features a 4306 square metre amenity building, a 75 bedroom hotel with associated lakeside terraces, 900 spaced car park, one of the largest Shell filing stations in the UK, as well as an architecturally exciting series of retail and food outlets enabling customers to relax at one of the busiest sections of the M25 motorway network, previously an unserviced area for a 65 mile gap.

Mathew Harris, BAM Construction’s senior project surveyor, said: “KM Cleaning Services carried out an extensive builders clean, internally and externally, to both the 75-bedroom hotel and service station amenity building here on the Cobham MSA Project. KM was very approachable and carried out all tasks requested by our site management team professionally and efficiently, even when those tasks fell out of their original scope of works. Plenty of additional work was required on the project, much of which was carried out ‘out of hours’ in a big push to have the buildings opened on time - and there was never an issue with labour resources or speed of work. We at BAM are more than satisfied with the service provided and would have no hesitation at all in giving them the opportunity to price future projects.”
