Indepth Managed Services will be providing premises cleaning, external and internal window cleaning, waste services including computer removal and recycling, food waste, preventative pest control, hygiene services and consumable provisions for Arup.

It will be providing a mixed cleaning and ‘soft’ FM service to Arup’s offices in Fitzrovia in London, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield, York and Solihull.

Due to the diversity in the design of Arup’s offices, Indepth Managed Services states it will be using its specialist skills to cater for the bespoke interior and exterior finishes of the new customer’s buildings. Window cleaning will constitute a major part of the service delivery, requiring expert attention to maintain Arup’s decorative and high performance building facades.
