Angel Central TFM Contract
Commercial real estate consultants Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) have appointed ABM as facilities manager for the Angel Central shopping centre in Islington, North London.
The centre which is owned by CBRE Global Investors is home to a strong line-up of shops, restaurants and cinema, and has recently completed a £16 million redevelopment to enhance its offering for the local community with flagship restaurant and new retail opportunities. Construction work has included a new circular walkway linking its two levels, outdoor seating and extended leisure facilities.
The three-year award will see ABM’s team deliver a total facilities management (TFM) package of mechanical and electrical, security and cleaning services. ABM is already managing several other retail LSH sites across the United Kingdom.
John McPherson, ABM UK managing director, comments: “We’re delighted to extend our relationship with the team at LSH. The contract for Angel Central provides us with an opportunity to deliver both our technical and facilities management services, offering more efficiency for our client in a central London location.
“As we look forward to a phased return to normality over the coming weeks, we understand now more than ever, that our clients need to reassure the public that buildings and public spaces are safe and secure.”
Adam Cummins, centre manager, adds: “ABM’s extensive experience in technical and facilities management services, together with its impressive operational approach and understanding of enhanced cleaning procedures makes them a valuable extension of our team. With ABM’s expertise behind us we look forward to the easing of further lockdown restrictions and seeing Angel Central, safely and securely, busy once again.”
