Industrial Cleaning Case Study

Last year CCS completed a wide range of industrial cleaning projects, each with their own unique requirements and challenges. By its definition industrial cleaning is unpredictable and often can involve our emergency response cleaning teams. One such project was the result of a near disaster in which a 24-month redevelopment of an iconic building caught fire two months from completion. Thankfully nobody was injured, but the fire had a huge impact on not only the premises but also on the client, contractors and employees who had invested so much time and energy into the building. When the damage was assessed and what was salvageable identified, we were called upon to bring the smoke damaged areas to a standard whereby trades could operate as normal.

Message from our CEO

“Our industrial teams are used to working in difficult circumstances. In high-stress jobs such as this our core focus is on providing a reliable, consistent and professional service.”

Here Larry Cullen CCS Head of Industrial ROI & UK reflects on the project.

“We were tasked with providing the office cleaning during an initial mobilisation and changeover phase and thereafter providing the daily office clean. For a job like this preparation is key and when the time came to mobilise, we were equipped, prepared and ready to swing into action.”

The Specs

From the initial survey we understood that this was going to be a project with a difference. The building was in the heart of the city and very much in the hearts of the locals, so we knew we would have to be sensitive to this as well as endeavour to complete our part of the project. It was a significant landmark steeped in history and very much part of the lure of the city. This motivated us even more, as we wanted to ensure that we preserving and saving the building for locals and future generations.

It was also evident that the contractors who had worked so hard to bring the project to this stage were upset and demoralised.

The Challenges

This job was considered an emergency and required a fast and decisive response. So, we had to mobilise and prepare extremely quickly. Apart from the standard logistics associated with mobilising our teams, there was also additional training required before our people could access the site. Safety is paramount on a job like this and all of our people had to attend asbestos awareness training and face mask breathing training. Due to the challenging conditions our teams had to wear Personal Protective Equipment as standard. As well as the constraints of additional PPE, the environment in which we were working was physically very demanding.
