REM portfolio retained in 5-year deal

Principle Cleaning Services has retained its contract with Real Estate Management (UK) (REM) for three of its properties - The Shard, Park House Oxford Street, and 48 Pall Mall. The new five-year deal will see Principle, which began working with REM in 2012, involved in some of the most complex vertical cleaning required in London today.

The company will provide cleaning, window cleaning, pest control, waste management, washroom services, and consumables at the three properties. Principle will also utilise its cloud-based systems and technology in its daily on-site operations.

Simon Green, head of facilities management at REM, said: “It is encouraging that after working with us for over five years, Principle has been able to demonstrate through competitive tender that it can still provide the best service proposition whilst remaining price competitive. We look forward to working with them to introduce the new initiatives that they have proposed.”

Peter Smith, CEO, Principle Cleaning Services, said: “Retaining this contract for another five years is a huge achievement for everyone at Principle and is testament to the hard work of all involved in keeping these iconic buildings in pristine condition on a day-to-day basis. We took part in a rigorous tender process, part of which was effectively demonstrating our ability to continue to bring new innovation to the contract with the objective of both enhancing service and maximising value for money across different disciplines. We are delighted to have been successful and are looking forward to continuing our partnership with REM at all three properties.”
