Core Facility Services has expanded its in-house cleaning team after signing a deal with fellow Huddersfield Town partner Chadwick Lawrence to manage commercial cleaning at the law firm’s Wakefield and Huddersfield offices.
The deal has increased Core’s contracted cleaning by an extra 70 hours a week and they have taken on nine extra staff, who will work as part of the Core cleaning and maintenance team across a range of local sites, including Chadwick Lawrence.

Colette Watts of Core said: “We have a longstanding relationship with Chadwick Lawrence as their waste management provider and we are pleased to have been able to extend our partnership with them to provide a fully managed professional cleaning service.

“Our goal has been to optimise the cleaning service so that it works more efficiently, reducing the number of hours required whilst delivering higher standards through careful planning and proactive management,” she explained.

Colette said Core was continuing to expand its in house cleaning and maintenance teams in response to demand from local businesses for estates management services. 

Clients include Overgate Hospice and its shops, Huddersfield engineering firm Westin and Henderson Properties. Core also provides domestic cleaning services.

Danielle Hesletine of Chadwick Lawrence, said: “The transition from our previous provider to Core has been seamless and there has been a tangible improvement in standards and consistency which was immediately noticeable. We have grown our partnership with Core in a number of areas and we value the reliability and dependability which they give to us.”
