Repeat business totalling over £10 million has been secured so far for the next five years by Julius Rutherfoord, including retendered contracts for London Borough of Merton’s children, schools and families premises, and the Honourable Society of The Inner Temple.
Julius Rutherfoord began cleaning Merton’s children, schools and families premises in April 2009 following serious instances of Norovirus sweeping through schools. Since Julius Rutherfoord came on board, Norovirus outbreaks have been effectively eradicated from the premises, with no outbreaks recorded for seven consecutive winters.
Meanwhile, the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple is an historic 54,000m2 estate of barristers chambers, comprising 40 buildings and including gardens, library and church, all cleaned and maintained by Julius Rutherfoord since 2012.
Julius Rutherfoord’s environmental standards and use of chemical-free cleaning methods have helped boost the health and wellbeing of the facility and its users. Its dedicated teams have transformed the original marble flooring within the Great Hall by stripping and treating it with Twister Pads which use millions of microscopic diamonds to clean and polish without the use of any chemicals. The result was a sparkling clean, non-slippery floor which does not requires polish.
Julius Rutherfoord’s operations director, Chris Parkes, said: “It is evident that a major reason that our clients wish to re-sign with Julius Rutherfoord is not just the consistent high quality cleaning outputs, but our high levels of personal service and of off-site management support. In fact, we still retain our first customer - London and Cambridge Properties - who we began servicing in 1990. We know what it takes to deliver for discerning clients, and we stand for something beyond the normal claims of other outsourcing companies. Our award-winning cleaning and maintenance teams must be reliable, high-quality professionals who deliver on our promises in an expert, adaptable and pre-emptive way. It’s not enough to say we provide a service. We are also meticulous about doing what we said we were going to do, and achieving results that make a difference to our clients and their facilities.”
