The Houses of Parliament are tendering for cleaning services on the Parliamentary estate. The requirement is in 2 Lots. The contracts will be in place for an initial 5 years, with 2 further options to extend for a year each, to a maximum of 7 years.
The Parliamentary Estate is made up of 15 buildings in the heart of Westminster; the majority of which are listed and include the Palace of Westminster which is Grade 1 listed and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Estate has both historic and valuable fixtures, fittings, furniture and art works the Contractor will be cleaning or working in proximity to. Cleaning methods, products and equipment must be suitable for working in this kind of environment and buildings.
Lot 1 — General Cleaning; covers the cleaning of offices, circulation spaces, tea-points and toilets including the provision of roller towels and sanitary products. Some of these areas are cleaned by the in-house team of Cleaners in the House of Commons or by the in-house team of Housekeepers in the House of Lords and are therefore not part of this contract. All windows, gutters, gulleys, drains and outside spaces are included in this lot, as well as janitorial services and the purchasing of all necessary cleaning consumables for use by the Contractor.
Lot 2 — Kitchens; covers the daily cleaning of a number of kitchen areas, front of house (bar and restaurant areas), staff toilet and changing areas, kitchen corridors, goods receiving areas, butchery and fish preparation areas, pot and plate wash areas as well as the lifts and stairwells used by the kitchen staff. This lot also covers additional periodic (fortnightly and monthly) kitchen cleans. The service includes all surfaces, equipment, light fittings, ventilation vents and grills, drip trays, grease gullies etc. During Parliamentary recesses, when venues are closed, scheduled deep cleans of kitchens are required. These will usually take place during the summer and Christmas recesses. The Contractor will be essential in helping ensure the kitchens achieve their high level of food hygiene rating standards (Westminster Council).
