A clean sweep for BBC Cymru Wales

Leading Welsh cleaning company Clean Sweep completes project with BBC Wales

Swansea-based commercial and industrial cleaning company Clean Sweep has worked with BBC Wales in the development of the new 95,000 sq ft BBC building in Cardiff.

The company provided industrial cleaning services on the project after being appointed by Overbury, a leading specialist contracted to fit out the building. It carried out a daily clean of the site’s welfare facilities during construction and a high level clean of the internal building façade.

The six-storey premises required a spider lift to clean the building from floor to ceiling – a job requiring special licenses under the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) to conduct this specialist work.

The five-figure contract also involved Clean Sweep’s thorough ‘sparkle clean’ to clean the offices, communal spaces, studios and soundproof rooms, ensuring they were fit for handover. The company increased its staff base to manage the increase in service demand and plans are in place to continue at this pace of growth and expansion.

The building was constructed to replace BBC Cymru Wales’ former HQ in Llandaff. The building work was carried out by ISG and after construction, the project was handed over to Overbury to fit out the building.

Clean Sweep has continued to provide its services to Overbury based on the standard of work the cleaning company carried out on the BBC Building.

Helen Williams, Managing Director of Clean Sweep, said: “This has been an amazing opportunity for us to work on a commercial project to such a large scale. The team worked hard to bring the project together and has carried it out to the best standard. The building is a massive part of Cardiff’s regeneration scheme – it’s been a great experience for us.

“I’m looking forward to the next 12 months of Clean Sweep – seeing us grow from strength to strength and continuing to work on leading contracts around the UK.”

Marcus Heath, Project Manager at Overbury, commented: “I take genuine pleasure in recommending Helen and the team at Clean Sweep’s commercial cleaning services. Helen and the team are tactful, efficient, conscientious, hardworking and a genuine pleasure to work with.”
