The Angel Building

The Angel Building

An iconic and award winning redevelopment off Pentonville Road in Islington, this building offers 260,000 square feet of high specification office space, with café, specially-commissioned works of art and large rooftop terraces affording spectacular views over London.

The Challenge

A key addition to the Derwent London portfolio, The Angel Building was completed in 2010. With huge investment put into the design and build of the site, there were two main cleaning challenges; the ‘launch clean’ and the on-going day to day cleaning and maintenance of the common parts and surrounding building perimeter. The site needed to remain looking as good as it did when it first opened and this all had to be delivered on budget and to agreed timescales.

The Solution

During the building phase, Chamberlaine Cleaning were asked by Derwent London to work alongside them as cleaning consultants to tap into their extensive knowledge and to understand what the cleaning requirements would be for the building.

Time was taken to assess the building, the fabric and materials that were to be used, the space and design of all common part areas, storage and machinery requirements. From this and on-going discussions and correspondence with the client, a more detailed and concrete proposal was put together and agreed.

A cleaning team were also trained and mobilised ready to work around the builders towards the end of the project to ensure that the building was immaculately clean on the day of the launch.

The Result

The launch of the building was a huge success and on this day the standards of the cleaning won high praise from the tenants. A professional, consistent and well trained team of managers, supervisors and cleaners have built strong relationships with the client and tenants of the building and continue to maintain the high standards of the building.

On-going assessments in addition to periodical and deep cleans now take place as and when agreed with the client. This helps to further enhance the image of the building.

All this occurs with particular focus and attention to environmental accreditations and innovation where appropriate on site.

Derwent London continues to use Chamberlaine Cleaning for the vast majority of their portfolio as the trusted cleaning partner for their iconic and design-led properties.
