Theatre cleaning awarded to Emprise Services

30 October 2007

Delfont Mackintosh Theatres has signed a deal with Emprise Services PLC to deliver a full cleaning service to all seven theatres in its portfolio.

The contract will involve both front and rear of house, cleaning in the morning and again after matinee performances. Each theatre will be supported by up to 14 Emprise staff depending on its size and the entire service will be carried out using environmentally-friendly cleaning products. Water-saving procedures and labour-saving devices, such as handheld buffers, will also be used throughout the theatres.

The relationship between Emprise and Delfont Mackintosh began in 1999 with the Queen’s theatre, and the win of the whole group is as a result of the contract going out to competitive tender.

“We were impressed by Emprise’s consistently proactive approach to the relationship, and the company’s innovative methods of greener cleaning,” said Billy Differ, operations director at Delfont Mackintosh.
“Cameron Mackintosh has spent millions of pounds refurbishing the buildings, so it is vital that we maintain them at the highest possible levels. Our relationship with Emprise is designed to encompass all areas of cleaning through one efficient operation – previously this was carried out by separate companies.”

Differ added: “We are also expecting significant cost savings – Emprise has suggested a number of areas, such as labour-saving devices, where we’ll be able to achieve this.

Delfont Mackintosh Theatres is owned by Cameron Mackintosh and operates seven theatres in London's West End. The Prince Edward, Prince of Wales, Novello, Noel Coward and Gielgud Theatres have all undergone major refurbishment and restoration, with updating of the Queen's and Wyndham's ongoing.
