Interserve has been awarded a two-year extension of its contract to provide security services to the BBC worth in excess of £20 million.
First Security – part of Interserve – has worked with the BBC 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. The account extension will start in early 2017.
First Security 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.
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.”
