Ashford Environmental - 5 Broadgate

Ashford Environmental Services Limited is recognised as the UK’s leading commissioning and water treatment specialist, providing an integrated “one-stop” service to industry and commerce. Established in early 1997, Ashford continues to grow both financially and geographically, undertaking projects throughout the UK, Europe and the Middle East.

Early 2016 saw Ashford commence works on one of the City’s largest developments, the £100 million UBS fit out of 5 Broadgate. The 12 Storey “groundscraper” will house 3,000 traders, the biggest concentration in the City together with 2,400 support staff. There are 4 dealer floors totalling 67,000 square metres – equivalent to 4 football pitches. The major challenge for everyone involved in the project is the sheer scale of the building combined with an extremely short programme.

Delivering the pre-commission cleaning and commissioning on a project of the scale of 5 Broadgate in the timeframe available is not just down to resources. The fact that Ashford has the largest workforce out there at the moment helps, however, detailed planning and co-ordination combined with flexible working (24 hours, 7 days per week for a 12 week period) are key to achieving the milestones. This flexibility and willingness to go the extra mile is why Ashford are so successful in winning repeat business.

If you want a fresh pro-active approach backed up by a wealth of experience and a management philosophy of continuous improvement in service and performance, then contact us now. One of our directors will be happy to meet with you to discuss how Ashford can enhance the service that you provide.
