Test of building cleanability

01 November 2007

Nominations for the 2007/2008 Building Cleanability Awards close on 31 December 2007.

The biennial awards of the The Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners, the Building Cleanability Awards, are designed to focus attention on the important relationship between building design and cleaning effectiveness. Since the Awards began in 1995, nearly 300 buildings have been assess across the UK. Over 80 different assessment criteria are used to ascertain what challenges cleaning staff are faced with each day. These can range from access to cleaning materials and equipment storage provision, to the construction materials used in various areas of each building.

The Awards scheme is funded by the British Cleaning Council and sponsored by BICS, Karcher UK, LCC Support Services, ISS UK and Mayflower Washroom Solutions. There are no entry fees for these Awards. Buildings can be nominated via the website The Awards will be presented at the Great Hall, Guildhall, London on 30th June 2008.
