Atalian Servest has secured a three-year contract to provide manned guarding for the Queen Elizabeth II (QEII) Centre located in Westminster, London.
The contract which mobilised on 25 April 2022, employs a team of 21 colleagues to provide manned guarding and front of house solutions. Underpinned by technology to enhance resilience and drive efficiencies, a bespoke security system is deployed for patrols, and paper logbooks, records of conversations and incident reporting are replaced with digital versions.
The QEII Centre is central London’s largest dedicated conference and exhibition space, hosting over 400 events per year. Since opening in 1986, it has hosted thousands of international and national conferences, congresses, and exhibitions from a multitude of sectors including intergovernmental organisations, FTSE100 companies, technology and software and medical associations and has welcomed leaders of trade, industry, and nations.
The global FM service provider was awarded this contract due to its proven track record in directly delivering a wide range of facilities services to high profile clients, most notably at the G7 Leaders’ Summit in Cornwall and COP26 in Glasgow.
Commenting on the contract award, Neil Chandler the QEII Centre’s Venue Operations Director said: “We are pleased to be working with Atalian Servest to provide a holistic approach to our security provision. Their forward-thinking vision to implement improvements and drive efficiencies has already been instrumental, and we look forward to growing the partnership.”
Daniel Dickson, CEO Atalian Servest UK & Ireland added: “Following the successful mobilisation, we look forward to delivering an excellent service and establishing a partnership with the QEII centre. Our proven track record, experience and key learnings in providing robust security solutions for UK Government departments will be key to the success of this relationship.”
