The City of London Corporation has awarded an extensive high-level cleaning contract to project development and construction group Skanska.


The contract, which will be delivered by specialist services provider Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG), consists of a large scale high-level cleaning contract to a portfolio of 430 sites including iconic buildings such as the Guildhall. 

 

PTSG will undertake gutter cleaning at 430 sites across the City of London district. The works will incorporate a range of high-level access methods, including abseiling, MEWP and rope access to reach the most challenging areas of the buildings. Much of the cleaning will be performed by operatives using skyvacs to carefully clean gutters and downpipes, removing any debris that has built-up over time.

 

Skanska and PTSG have worked collaboratively for a number of years. The scheme forms part of the City Corporation’s £4.6M 5-year mechanical and electrical maintenance contract with Skanska, which also sees PTSG’s Building Access Specialists and Electrical Services divisions work in harmony to deliver a range of specialist services, including electrical fixed-wire testing, PATs, fall arrest testing and lighting protection services. All services will be delivered annually by a dedicated operations team, which will focus solely on works on behalf of the City Corporation.


Andrew Dack of PTSG, said: “Blocked guttering is a leading cause of flood damage, damp and water ingress, and for organisations such as the City of London Corporation, the costs of repairs to such high-profile structures could be astronomical. PTSG is a trusted provider of all types of high-level cleaning and we work closely with clients to maintain their facilities and deliver real cost-saving maintenance services.”

   

The City of London Corporation has a diverse portfolio of properties, including Mansion House, the Old Bailey, London Wall and the Barbican. PTSG has provided specialist services for the contract since July 2017, and will begin its gutter cleaning services in December 2017.
