Following a competitive retender process, Mitie has renewed its security contract with high speed passenger rail service, Eurostar, for another three years.

The contract renewal continues the partnership between Mitie Security and Eurostar, with Mitie having provided services for the past 14 years.

Jason Towse, Managing Director, Business Services, Mitie, said: “Having provided services to Eurostar for over 14 years, we’re delighted to be continuing our strong relationship, as we continue to deliver security services at St Pancras and Temple Mills. We look forward to continuing to work together over the coming years to ensure the millions of passengers travelling on the Eurostar annually enjoy safe and pleasant journeys.”

The contract has the option for an additional two years.

Metro Rod Drainage and Plumbing Survey

With the current economic crisis resulting in higher prices and more of a squeeze on resources, FMs need to ensure that they have robust building and maintenance services in place to control costs and reduce the need for emergency repairs. When it comes to drainage and plumbing there are also the challenges of dealing with extreme weather, from droughts to flooding, the need to meet stringent regulations and to avoid causing environmental damage.

UK drainage specialist, Metro Rod, has launched a survey which explores the main areas of interest for FMs in maintaining drainage and plumbing, including how they currently assess their supply chains to ensure they’re working with partners that meet the highest possible standards and provide value for money.

The results will be published online so that you can see how you compare to others within the sector.

The survey should take just 5-10 minutes of your time, and as a thank you, you will be entered into a prize draw, where one lucky winner will be picked at random to receive a £100 Amazon voucher.
