Axis Security has been awarded a further contract with Broadgate Estates to provide security services to Ropemaker Place in the City of London.
The security services specialist has worked with Broadgate Estates for a number of years, providing security services to Paternoster Square, the Corn Exchange and 30 North Colonnade. Ropemaker Place is a commercial, twenty-storey building with two trading floors at the lower level. It is occupied by a variety of international finance and investment companies.
Under the terms of the contract, Axis Security is responsible for providing manned guarding services, management of the post room, control room and loading bay services.
Services are to be delivered by 30 personnel across 1,310 hours per week, which includes a tenant contract also located at Ropemaker Place and managed by Broadgate Estates.
Twenty-six existing employees have transferred to Axis Security employment via TUPE, and a further four support personnel have been recruited to ensure seamless delivery of the large-scale security operation.
According to Axis Security, the employee benefits package it provides, as well as its learning and development (L&D) strategy, was ‘fundamental” to winning the contract. The L&D strategy includes: World Host Training, ensuring the highest levels of customer service; first aid training; banksman training for the traffic marshal; Project Argus and Project Griffin counter-terrorism training; and IOSH health and safety training. Axis Security is also implementing a one-day, classroom-based training programme to target additional opportunities for best in class service.
