INTERSERVE AWARDED £20 MILLION BBC SECURITY CONTRACT EXTENSION
Interserve, the international support services and construction group, has been awarded a two-year extension of its contract to provide security services to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) worth in excess of £20 million.
The company has provided the BBC with security services since April 2014 when it was awarded the Corporation's National Security Contract. This was a three-year deal to provide security services at properties across the UK.
Interserve handles all manned guarding, close protection and control room operations at a variety of sites, including Broadcasting House in London, Pacific Quay in Glasgow and the Media City UK complex in Salford. The account extension will start in early 2017.
Tom Ward, director of operations for security at Interserve, said:
"We have a strong working relationship and have built up a track record of delivering outstanding service across a large and diverse portfolio. We look forward to continuing our work with the Corporation for a further two years."
Interserve is the BBC's integrated facilities management partner and provides workplace support and services including cleaning, maintenance, mechanical and electrical, signage and waste management to sites across the UK.
