Yet another landmark building cleaning contract win for Principle
With another iconic building to add to its impressive portfolio, Principle Cleaning Services tells us it is delighted to have won a high status contract for the prestigious Lloyd's of London at One Lime Street.
Lloyd's is not a company and the building is not open to the public. It is the world's leading insurance market where members join together as syndicates to insure and reinsure risk conducting business in over 200 countries and territories worldwide.
With the London sustainable contract cleaning company already cleaning its neighbour, 30 St Mary Axe (The Gherkin), staff at Lloyd's will be responsible for the daily cleaning which will mainly be done in the evening with a day clean presence and will include housekeeping duties and cleaning of the ground floor.
Housed in the award-winning modern building in the City of London and an unmissable building on any tour of the City, Lloyd's is the symbol of the decadent/contemporary contrast. It is a wonderful gigantic metal building with all its structures exposed and the lift being a glass cube, located in the exterior of the building, shows amazing views of London.
Lloyds' earliest home and its origins lay in the more modest surroundings of Edward Lloyd's 17th century coffee house but in 1978 the Committee commissioned the architect Richard Rogers (now Lord Rogers of Riverside) to redevelop the Leadenhall site which was officially opened in 1986 by HM The Queen.
