Churchill seals Dover deal

Churchill has won a three-year contract to provide cleaning services to Dover Harbour Board, the owner and operator of he Port of Dover.

The port is the world’s busiest passenger port, with 16 million travellers, 2.1 million lorries, 2.8 million cars and motorcycles and 86,000 coaches passing through it each year. It boasts an annual turnover of £58.5 million.

The contract, which began in December 2016, includes cleaning of more than 70 buildings, along with internal and external cleaning services, washroom services, plumbing and maintenance.

Churchill has recently up-skilled existing team members to enhance service capability on-site to include plumbing, maintenance and grounds maintenance, improving serve delivery and delivering cost synergies in the process.

The operational delivery model in place at the Port of Dover combines state-of-the-art technology and innovative equipment to provide a forward-thinking solution. This includes implementation of Churchill’s bespoke MapTag system to manage reactive and periodic cleaning tasks, spill management, quality auditing and fault reporting, which has delivered increased accountability and planning efficiencies. Churchill has also introduced chemical-free cleaning with pure water, which absorbs dirt particles and removes bacteria efficiently without the use of chemicals, leaving a residue-free finish on all surfaces.

James Temby, regional manager commented: ‘’This is a hugely exciting contract for Churchill. One of our key business ambitions is to grow our transport portfolio and being awarded the contract for one of the busiest ports in Europe offers the best platform to move forward.

“The original win and subsequent contract successes demonstrates our capability in this area and we are delighted to have been trusted as a partner. We are confident we will continue to deliver the highest standards and grow our partnership with the Port to ensure a successful ongoing relationship.”

NG Bailey further invests in specialist energy services…

According to reports, the independent facilities, engineering and IT services group, NG Bailey, has confirmed that it will continue to invest in its specialist energy services by introducing a dedicated ‘central operations’ centre.

The new centre, which claims to offer support to the company’s specialist team by merging the existing facilities management, IT and engineering expertise and abilities, provides services including: energy monitoring and alarming, data analysis, mobile operations management and dynamic scheduling to its client base.

NG Bailey’s head of energy, Chris Coath, commented: “Buildings are generating more data than ever before, and by accessing and then analysing that data we can use our design, engineering and building services capabilities to improve system efficiencies, increase building performance and reduce energy usage. This enables us to generate tangible outcomes for building owners and occupiers.

He continued: “The real opportunity is in the analysis of building data, which is what our operations centre is focused on. By being able to analyse and respond, in real time, to the data that is being collected within a building, we can help customers meet their financial and sustainability objectives.”

It is thought that NG Bailey has invested an estimated £1 million in its energy services offering during the last financial year.
