Student accommodation contract awarded

A student accommodation project in the SA1 development area of Swansea has enlisted the services of a local cleaning company to provide its professional cleaning services as the second phase of the development begins. The accommodation project recently entered its second phase. Phase one of the project saw the construction of a 375 bedroom student accommodation building, with the second phase seeing an extension of a 340 room build.

The ongoing building work at Morfa Road, Swansea, which is due for completion in summer 2017 by construction company Watkin Jones, has called on the services of Clean Sweep to complete full commercial cleaning in and around the building site.

Clean Sweep has been contracted to work simultaneously with Watkin Jones during the ongoing building work, ensuring the building and surrounding areas are cleaned in preparation for each stage of the build, to meet required health and safety standards. Clean Sweep will also conduct its deep cleaning service within the new 340 room phase two development.

Due to an increase in substantial and long-term commercial contracts, Clean Sweep has increased its staff base to meet demand. Helen Williams, the company’s managing director, said: “With the company winning an increasing number of commercial contracts in recent months, such as this Morfa Road student accommodation build, we have needed to expand our team accordingly. This means we are already meeting the growth and development targets we set for 2017. I am extremely proud of our skilled and experienced team for their continuous hard work and efforts on expansive and commercial projects such as this. It is great to work alongside Watkin Jones during this project build and we look forward to seeing the final result in summer 2017.”

Dylan Williams, project manager at Watkin Jones, said: “This is the first time Clean Sweep has worked with Watkin Jones Group, and is currently undertaking the builders clean to a 340 bed student accommodation extension to an existing phase. The current standard of work is very good and matches our expectations for a builders clean, and this will follow on with the sparkle clean prior to handover. Labour levels are consistent with the work required and Clean Sweep has achieved all the dates as per the programme.”
