    the man to clean the offices

    Can one use:
    1) The man to clean the offices is absent today.
    instead of:
    2) The man who cleans the offices is absent today.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    It's not natural, no.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
