The ExCeL Cleaning Team has been trained to deliver enhanced cleaning procedures:

  • All touch points are regularly wiped with chlorine-based cleaning fluid.

  • We have installed a Nimlok Entry Management System (NEMS) at the entrances to all bathrooms, located along the boulevard, to assist with managing the flow of people.

Managing fresh air flow:

Ventilation has been increased in line with latest CIBSE (Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers) guidance and recommendations. 

• Fresh air supply has been improved by increasing the size and speed of fans, as well as the installation of new pipes. 

• There is a regular maintenance programme in place, which ensures double the amount of statutory checks are carried out. Filters are replaced regularly. 

• CO2 monitors have been installed in client facing areas. These monitor air conditions and provide an indication of whether capacity should be reduced. These are not alarmed but will support writing an effective risk assessment.
