We want the building to be maintained to the highest standards of cleanliness. This means that the common areas are cleaned every weekday morning and all the toilets re-stocked.

Where possible we use minimal chemicals in the cleaning process.

If you encounter any problems please speak to the Building Manager.

Sustainability

Derwent London Sustainability Policy

Sustainability is very important for our business.  Although we always seek to design and deliver buildings which are sustainable and efficient to run, rigorous management is still required in order to maximise performance and deliver the potential savings of which the buildings are capable.  Coupled with this we believe it is important to engage proactively with you, our tenants to assist in helping you to operate your spaces as efficiently as possible, thereby making our management efforts even more effective.

To help with this we have included various pieces of information which you might find useful.  These range from Green Travel Plans for your building, information on Green Forums and how to get involved through to cycle maintenance programmes and facilities.

Should you wish to discuss further any aspects with regards to sustainability in your building or space please speak to your Building Manager or contact the Derwent London Sustainability Team directly – sustainability@derwentlondon.com or visit http://www.derwentlondon.com/sustainability/
