Fitting in with Special Requirements

Indepth Managed Services has won a new FM contract with transport and logistics operator Eddie Stobart.

Indepth will be servicing Eddie Stobart’s purpose-built service support centre in Appleton, Warrington providing daily cleaning services.

While the service support centre was being designed, Indepth conducted a cleaning survey in order to submit a detailed proposal to meet the exact needs of the Eddie Stobart team.

Having provided daily cleaning services for a few months, Indepth appeared to have developed a close working relationship with the Eddie Stobart site facilities team who were satisfied with the management of the account and the cleaning standards provided.

There were significant challenges with the cleaning contract due to the special nature of the building’s interior design, cleaning building spaces that mimic vehicle and truck interiors. As well as having training areas made up of shipping containers, the reception desk is a repurposed cab in Eddie Stobart livery and there is a Volvo cab split in two in the main area. There is also an exhibit on site consisting of a number of Stobart trucks, from an original model dated from 1974 to a modern day truck.

“We are very happy with the managed service that Indepth provide,” stated Julie Burdon, Facilities Manage, Eddie Stobart. “They fully understand the importance of our site standards, particularly with the nature of the service support centre’s interior design and the cleaning survey they conducted during the design phase allowed them to meet our standards from day one.”
