Portfolio, Churchill’s high specification cleaning division, has secured a three-year contract extension with English National Ballet (ENB).The agreement, which is due to commence late July, will see Portfolio deliver general cleaning services at ENB’s new premises at London City Island, Canning Town, where the company will move this summer. In keeping with its aim to limit industry impact on the environment, Portfolio by Churchill will make use of the Purex cleaning system that will help to raise standards without the use of industrial chemicals.
English National Ballet is joined by English National Ballet School at the new site - at 93,000 sq. feet the site is four times the size of current buildings and will provide a dedicated space for dancers, choreographers, costume-makers, musicians, and students. Situated five minutes from Stratford, it will join other new cultural landmarks in the area, including Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London College of Fashion and the V&A East project.
Antony Law, managing director of Portfolio by Churchill, said: “We’re excited to be joining English National Ballet in its fantastic new build and look forward to maintaining a space that truly supports staff and dancers.”
Adrian Wyer, facilities manager at English National Ballet, added: “English National Ballet is keen to commence its new working partnership with Portfolio by Churchill as it moves into a new, purpose-built home. Delivery of exceptional cleaning services along with new methods of environmentally focused cleaning will be the main basis of this partnership.”
Portfolio by Churchill is delivered by a dedicated team of cleaning professionals who are trained in concierge style service. Team members are developed to understand a client organisation’s culture and the importance of the little details that make a big difference.
