Who are Shropshire Homes?
Shropshire Homes is an award-winning independent house builder, developing quality homes in Shropshire and surroundings for over 35 years. They provide value homes of distinctive character in the most desirable locations in the county. As well as new-build houses they specialise in conversions of historic and listed buildings, their wide range of properties offers a variety of houses and apartments to satisfy each homeowner’s individual needs.
What were the problems & challenges they faced?
Initially, Shropshire Homes relied on site labourers to clean completed houses. However, as the number and size of the sites have grown this system was unable to cope with the tight deadlines and level of quality clients required. Getting finished houses cleaned became a real headache for Shropshire Homes and they decided to search for a local, professional company to take on these tasks.
How did Prime Help?
In Jackfield near Ironbridge, the local site manager (now a Director of the company) Gerald Rogers decided to address these problems and outsourced the house cleaning to a local owner managed business in order to achieve better focus, quality, and reliability. He trusted David Rogers from Prime Facility Services to take this work on and the subsequent results have been first class.
This site, now complete, received regular, pre-arranged visits from skilled, experienced, trained cleaning operatives who wear uniform and arrive in liveried vehicles. All health & safety aspects of the work are covered, and a supervisor ensures the site manager is 100% satisfied with the work completed on every visit.
As Shropshire Homes have grown they have built on this relationship and awarded the post construction cleaning contracts to Prime on 8 other sites in the group and are now exploring other services Prime can offer including communal cleaning, grounds maintenance, gutter, and window cleaning.
“Shropshire Homes are an iconic name in house building in the Midlands and we are proud to be associated with such a high-quality company. Our teams work hard every day to ensure we deliver a high-quality cleaning service that matched the quality of the build delivered by Shropshire Homes.”

“I have been delighted with the care and attention to detail Dave and his teams have given our sites. Shropshire Homes have very high standards that reflect the level of accommodation we provide our residents. They have consistently delivered a great service, and this has enabled them to win other sites within our group.
