Julius Rutherfoord wins Battersea Power Station cleaning contract

London’s No 1 contract cleaning company to provide full range of services for first phase of iconic new development

Battersea Power Station Estate Management Company (BPSEM) has chosen Julius Rutherfoord as its specialist cleaning and soft facilities management services contractor for Phase 1 of the iconic Battersea Power Station regeneration project.

Battersea-based Julius Rutherfoord was awarded the Circus West Village cleaning contract through Broadgate Estates, after presenting a bespoke and carefully thought-out solution aimed at delivering the ‘Beyond Expectation’ service levels demanded by residents, commercial tenants and visitors. The 24/7 contract incorporates a broad range of cleaning and facilities management services, including core cleaning, cleaning of the public realm, management of onsite waste, portering, winter maintenance and window cleaning. Services provided by Julius Rutherfoord will also include additional cleaning based around special events.

The £9 billion Battersea Power Station redevelopment is one of the largest and most exciting projects underway in the UK today. The enormous Power Station was decommissioned in 1983, and the overall project will see it and the surrounding area redeveloped into a whole new London district. The Battersea Power Station project is the cornerstone of the wider regeneration area of Nine Elms, which will become an exciting destination in central London offering 20,000 new homes, 25,000 new jobs, new schools, parks, culture and the arts.

The first phase of the Battersea project is Circus West Village, which has seen the construction of 865 residential properties located between the iconic Power Station and Battersea Park. This first phase also includes shops, offices, leisure and hospitality areas and a new events space and Village Hall.

Marcus Heap, Julius Rutherfoord Sales and Marketing Director, said, “Julius Rutherfoord was identified as the best partner to provide the market leading expertise and high standard of care required for the Circus West Village phase of this iconic development. BPSEM is committed to delivering a world class experience whilst ensuring a strong legacy impact to the local community. As a best in class London specialist, Julius Rutherfoord is committed to strongly supporting the aim to employ local people and to ensure this amazing development benefits the whole community.

“We are extremely proud of our Battersea roots and we are honoured to be playing a part in this fantastic development that is literally on our doorstep. We are looking forward to working as part of the team that will create London’s newest, most exciting and innovative neighbourhood.”
