Specialist Window Cleaning (SWC), a subsidiary of Incentive FM Group, has been selected for a contract at The Cube, a landmark, mixed-use development in Birmingham.


Under the terms of the deal SWC will provide window cleaning services at the 25-storey structure utilising abseiling techniques and external building maintenance units to maintain the building’s jewel-like exterior appearance.


Commenting on the award, Doug Wattleworth, Senior Facilities Manager at The Cube, said:
