Freshfields LLP is one of the world’s oldest and most successful elite global law firms. Its clients span a variety of sectors and include leading national and international corporations, financial institutions and governments, as well as charities, for whom it carries out work on a pro bono basis.
Freshfields is a firm with strong traditions but also with a history of thinking ahead. Anticipating the needs of clients – and people – is what keeps the company competitive.
That’s why, in September Freshfields moved its London office from Fleet Street to 100 Bishopsgate.
Located in the heart of the City, the prestigious new London office offers stunning facilities which demand cleaning of the highest standard. Occupying 255,000 sq ft on floors 20-32 of a 37-storey tower.
JR&Co have been working collaboratively with Freshfields to create the “see it, own it” culture they desire to raise standards within the overall delivery of FM services.
We first started implementing our outbreak control processes at 65 Fleet Street on the 1st of February; carrying out thorough sanitisation cleans using the Clorox T360 system to keep their people and their space safe.
Despite the challenges posed by the ongoing pandemic our Operations team, Mobilisation Manager and Centres of Excellence worked diligently with the Facilities team to mobilise cleaning services at 100 Bishopsgate on the 1st of September. Freshfields currently occupy 6 floors and we are gradually transitioning with them to TUPE the existing cleaning team to the JR&Co family by December when all 13 floors of Freshfields’ space will be occupied.
Our teams are delivering routine night cleaning led by a Night Manager with an Enhanced Touchpoint Day cleaning schedule in place led by a dedicated Deputy Account Manager. Each member of the team has received thorough Training in Enhanced Cleaning during COVID-19 and Health & Safety as well as Freshfields’ values and site specific instructions.
JR&Co are also pleased to be supporting Freshfields’ 100 Bishopsgate COVID-19 procurement needs with the supply of hand sanitiser stations, hand sanitiser gel and FFP1 face masks.
Alongside this, we have continued providing ongoing Clorox T360 disinfectant cleans and worked with the Facilities team to provide an August Bank Holiday weekend sparkle clean to ensure the new premises were sparkling from day one.
We are also delivering pest control, window cleaning and washroom services through our expert subcontractors.
JR&Co’s experience working with clients across the legal sector; from White & Case LLP to the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom means that we can give Freshfields LLP peace of mind that they are working with a trusted partner who will deliver meticulous standards of cleaning and hygiene for their teams and their clients.
