AM Services Group wins security contract at Leeds Arena Quarter

AM Services Group has been awarded the contract to deliver security services at The Merrion Centre, 123 Albion Street and three residential schemes in Leeds owned by property investment and car parking operator Town Centre Securities PLC (TCS).

Over three years, AM Services Group will be providing CCTV monitoring, shopping mall security, concierge and reception services and administrative support for the business, with a strong focus and commitment to providing an outstanding experience for customers and local communities.

The Merrion Centre, which lies at the heart of the Leeds Arena Quarter, is home to an exciting mix of high street brands as well as a variety of unique, independent retail and leisure operators. It has been owned, managed and continually redeveloped by TCS since it was originally built in 1964 and remains one of the leading places to shop, eat and drink today. The 1,000,000 sq ft mixed-use island-site comprises commercial, office, retail and leisure space, as well as having an adjoining 960 space CitiPark car park, bowling alley and ibis Styles Leeds City Centre Arena Hotel.

An extensive £5 million redevelopment programme at the mixed use 123 Albion Street scheme saw TCS deliver circa 65,000 sq ft of Grade A offices. Shortly after completion, TCS secured a letting of all the newly refurbished space to the UK’s leading debt advice provider

StepChange Debt Charity, who took three floors at the flagship scheme which also offers an additional 22,000 sq ft of ground floor multi-functional space.

Darren Brookes, Head of Operations for Town Centre Securities said: “TCS is focused on providing the highest levels of service across our properties and facilities, delivering excellence within the new and ever changing customer experience that the Covid-19 response demands. AM Services Group demonstrated, throughout the tender and mobilisation process, that the team have the experience and skills to understand and deliver to the standards we require. They have shown that they value both their clients and the end-user, and are committed through their ‘one team, one goal’ ethos to working with us in a joined up approach.”

FMJ and Grundon Waste Management have launched the 2021 waste and recycling management survey. It’s the fourth year for the annual appraisal of how FMs manage their waste and recycling activities and one which marks an unprecedented period of disruption to services due to the pandemic.

In order to understand how FMs have navigated their way through the last year and their plans for meeting stringent waste and recycling targets we’ve posed a series of questions – aided by the advice and experience of our editorial steering committee.

The results of the 2021 survey will be published in FMJ magazine and form the basis of a white paper co-written by FMJ and the experts at Grundon on how to approach waste and recycling strategies.
