Independent property consultant, Hartnell Taylor Cook has chosen Axis Group to deliver security and cleaning services at Walsingham House in the City of London.The appointment of Axis Security and sister business Axis Cleaning and Support Services gives Hartnell Taylor Cook a seamless ‘one team’ approach to the site’s security and cleaning needs.
Walsingham House offers more than 64,000 sq ft of new Grade A office space, following a complete redevelopment behind the retained Portland stone façade. The 10-storey building, close to Fenchurch Street Station, is a high-end development with terraces on the top three floors offering superb views of London landmarks. The building’s ornate façade, with elements of art deco, coupled with a prestige reception area, creates an elevated first impression for visitors.
Axis is currently providing a core team of front-of-house personnel, adding further staff as the building increases occupancy. The management teams for cleaning and security will work closely to provide joint contract management upholding Axis’s ‘one team’ approach.
Andrew Goodall, senior facilities manager for Hartnell Taylor Cook, said: “We selected Axis as we were looking for a company that had in depth experience in delivering security and cleaning services to high quality green field office developments. Since practical completion they have shown a level of flexibility, knowledge and service delivery that you seldom see in their market place.”
Jonathan Levine, Axis Group CEO, said: “We are very pleased to win this joint contract. We know that there are many benefits to be gained when cleaning and security services are managed with the same seamless approach and many of our clients, like Hartnell Taylor Cook are increasingly recognising this. We look forward to supporting at Walsingham House and providing the tenants with a first-class service.”
