Broadgate Estates has extended the contract to provide cleaning services to White City's former BBC Television Centre to include all common areas within the site's new residential development.

JPC has taken the job at the BBC's landmark former HQ which is being re-developed into high-end residential, leisure and office space. JPC has been looking after the marketing suite and then show homes over a period of two years.

Home to most of its national television and radio news output, Television Centre was the headquarters of BBC TV between 1960 and 2013.

The complex was sold to developers Stanhope plc for around £200 million though the BBC will retain a continued presence at Television Centre through its commercial subsidiaries.

The site's repurposing into a mixed use development takes in office and studio space, complementary entertainment and leisure facilities, public open space, premium offices, housing, cinema, a members' club and hotel.

The new development retains many features of the original buildings including the iconic ‘doughnut'-shaped commercial space, atomic dot wall and Helios statue.

Construction started in 2015 with 432 homes of 1000 in total anticipated due for Phase 1 completion in 2018.

Said JPC Operations Manager Sylwia De Sousa: "Maintaining a high standard of cleaning on a site under construction is a real challenge but it's so important, especially with prospect buyers visiting."

JPC also offers cleaning and related services at Stanhope's Chiswick Park site.
