October was another busy month for TKC, thankfully. Work is now well underway at one of our largest ever projects Oaklands House for Vistry Partnerships. This is London's largest regeneration project since the Olympics. Work is also well underway at Kensington Row for St Edwards, Berkeley Homes.
Despite lockdown 2.0 retailers are still actively refurbishing or building new stores. During October we helped clients handover various new stores including Burberry Bicester Village for Portview, Sainsbury's Musswell Hill for William Southern, Asda Taunton for CDS Group, The Range Belfast for CDS Group, Canali Bond Street for Prodrive, The Gym Oxford Street for Oakwhite, Bulgari Heathrow for Portview, Mcdonalds Long Eaton for Mark James and Watches of Switzerland Broadgate for Portview.
November is just as busy with the larger sites continuing as normal and the retail/fit out space using this downtime to refurb or build new stores ready for the Christmas rush in December.
News from our NEW Manchester Office
Our new Manchester office is up and running and has started work on a huge new project at Manchester Airport. The Hut Group, the online beauty giant, is creating a 400,000 sq ft office and studio space and our client Graham have appointed TKC as the cleaners on site. We have recently completed a large Primark for Graham down in Southend on Sea and are due to start their Sovereign House project in Leeds in November. This is testament to our hard working staff that clients such as Graham appoint TKC on projects all over the country.
So why does TKC do so well in such uncertain times?
First and foremost, the market is huge. No one has yet calculated the exact size of the construction cleaning market however The Kleaning Company’s Managing Director Daniel Twiselton estimates the after build cleaning market to be worth £600 million, he said “our clients budget around 0.5% of their build cost to cleaning so with construction output at around £120 billion a year we estimate this market to be somewhere in the region of £600 million which is 2.5% of the total commercial cleaning market estimated at £24 billion per year.”
Daniel goes on to say “one of the main reasons for our success is because of our staff. We have a very high employee retention rate, way above average for the industry. This means our staff are happy and are well paid which gives us the confidence to invest time and money in them by training and qualifying them in construction related courses.” He went on to add “by having staff qualified in SMSTS, IPAF, PASMA, First Aid etc gives us an edge over our competition. The industry has become so heavily focused, and rightly so, on health and safety it is vital to have industry recognised accreditations and qualifications to stand out from the crowd.”

There has been a huge increase in positive covid cases on sites over the past few weeks and we have been called out to numerous sites to decontaminate them which allows clients to keep their sites safe and open.
To help clients through this we are now offering a FREE emergency call out to decontaminate any site we have cleaners on where there has been a positive case.
TKC have teamed up with Beacon Wellness to offer regular COVID -19 tests to our staff. If any clients are interested in testing their staff we can arrange for tests to be sent out.
A big thank you to TKC for your hard work at our Canterbury Christ Church site. This was such a large project that inevitably threw up so many challenges but your teams showed professionalism which in the end helped Gilbert Ash successfully hand over the building on time. Kind regards, Darren DeLargy, Contracts Surveyor Gilbert Ash
