The contract includes provision of general as well as more specialised washroom and window cleaning services across the organisation's Headquarters site which is coincidentally named, Churchill House (after former wartime and post-war Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, who laid the building's foundation stone in 1956).
As a member of the London Universities Purchasing Consortium, the RCoA used the framework set out by the institution and released the contract to tender to five cleaning and facilities companies. Churchill was selected by the RCoA specifically for its commitment to sustainability, people training and development and its electronic auditing platform.
Natasha Marshall, its Head of Facilities, says:
"The RCoA was particularly keen to work with a company that has a demonstrated commitment to sustainability and environmental sensitivity. We are confident that the partnership with Churchill will help us achieve and even exceed our sustainability goals."
Joe Saisi, operations director for Churchill London & South East, adds:
"Churchill Cleaning is looking forward to working in partnership with the RCoA to support the cleaning efforts on this iconic site. We are delighted that our sustainability and environmental efforts shone through at tender level, and we are excited to implement these strategies throughout the duration of the contract."
