As you’d expect from a people-driven business, our initial aim was to build-up a strong partnership between the existing Library staff and the cleaning team. As these relationships developed, we started to introduce a range of initiatives that would build accountability and quality, including output based cleaning specifications and a new electronic auditing system.
Recognising the importance of supporting the Library in delivering their environmental ambition we also overhauled the approach to cleaning and waste, introducing pulse mops, chemical-free cleaning and other energy efficient equipment and completely eliminating waste to landfill.
It is always nice when our clients give positive feedback and we cherish this from Patrick Dixon, Head of Estates and Facilities at The British Library.
“The Atlas team have worked with dedication to provide the services needed to keep our buildings clean and sites safe; and we literally couldn’t have kept our buildings open to key security and maintenance staff without you”.
We continue to work alongside The British Library, actively seeking more ways to reduce our environmental impact and delivering happiness to their staff and visitors.
