Television Centre takes on new life …
Regent Samsic premium London service brand JPC has had its contract to provide cleaning services to White City’s former BBC Television Centre extended to include all common areas within the site’s new residential development.
JPC has been awarded more work by property management group Broadgate Estates at the BBC’s landmark former HQ which is being re-developed into high-end residential, leisure and office space.
For the past two years, JPC has maintained the highest cleaning standards on the estate, marketing suite and show homes.
Comments 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.
“It’s a real tribute to our team that we’ve been awarded even more work at Television Centre and as this fantastic site develops, we in turn hope that our partnership with it will, too.”
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.
Stanhope state that its scheme to create a new destination in West London for living, working and playing takes forward the innovative management approach adopted by the company at its Chiswick Park site, where cleaning and related services are also provided by JPC.
Construction at Television Centre, which will open to the public for the first time in its history, commenced in 2015 with 432 homes of 1000 in total anticipated due for Phase 1 completion in 2018.
