Regent Security

Regent adds cleaning to security services at leading out-of-town retail site

The UK's leading out-of-town retail site, Fosse Shopping Park has appointed Regent Cleaning to provide cleaning and maintenance services to its 37-acre site near Leicester.

Security to the site, which draws 12 million visitors a year, is already being provided by Regent’s security services arm.

Fosse Shopping Centre

Adjoining the M1 motorway, Fosse Park hosts 40 stores, with many major retail brands including Marks & Spencer, Next, BHS and Currys as tenants.

All shops and food outlets, together with a communal eating area, are situated on the ground floor making access easier for shoppers. Free parking for over 2,500 cars helps makes this one of the most popular and successful retail parks in the country.

Regent security acquisition, Premier Security Services (PSS) won the security contract at Fosse Park in 2010.

Centre Director Cathy Murdoch commended the company’s service as the 'the best security provider we have ever had' citing added team support, better systems and procedures and a strong working relationship with the site’s retail tenants.

When the cleaning contract to Fosse Park came up for review this year (2011) Regent’s cleaning division was invited to tender and in April duly won the contract to clean the site’s public circulation areas, management suite, grounds and car park areas.

Regent Cleaning and Security offer the perfect bundled solution with focus on sharing best practice aims and objectives with staff and tenants. Comprehensive team briefing and equipment training for operators of scrubbers, burnishers, vacuum cleaners and driers working on the single level site form a core component in ensuring rigorous attention to process.

Regent fields three full-time cleaners and 19 shift staff to the food hall, management suite and car park while security is provided by two control room operatives monitoring CCTV to retail areas and car park, supporting eight guards patrolling and assisting tenant in-store personnel and members of the public.

Growing uptake of deployment of Regent services in the retail sector includes a further contract gain for the company in IKEA’s Gateshead outlet; Regent also cleans stores at Cardiff, Bristol, Croydon and Wembley.
