Integrated FM provider ABM has been engaged by commercial real estate adviser Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) to serve its Angel Central Shopping Centre, Islington.
Under the three-year deal, ABM’s team will supply a total facilities management (TFM) package of mechanical and electrical, security and cleaning services. This award adds to ABM’s portfolio of retail clients, which already includes other LSH sites across the UK.
John McPherson, ABM UK’s managing director, said: “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.”
The centre, owned by CBRE Global Investors, is populated by well-known retail, restaurant and cinema brands and has recently undergone a £16 million redevelopment to create an enhanced offer for the local community with flagship restaurant and retail opportunities, plus a new circular walkway linking the two levels to include outdoor seating and more leisure facilities.
Adam Cummins, the centre’s manager, added: “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.”
