Mitie secures deal at Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City

Mitie has been appointed by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) to deliver security services, including site patrols and control room management, for Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City.

As part of the three-year contract, Mitie will provide bespoke training to all 230 Mitie Security Officers on site to ensure that they have the latest expertise on how to deliver security services for retail spaces. Officers will also receive ‘guest service training’, giving them the skills to be able to support members of the public and respond to any issues.

Mitie and URW have also committed to putting sustainability at the heart of operations by using only zero emission electric vehicles to help cut carbon emissions from transport on site. In addition to this, all Mitie colleagues will be provided with sustainable uniforms that are recycled once they are no longer needed, and the contract will see the creation of a paperless office for the Mitie team.

Technology will also be embedded in the contract, with Mitie rolling out its Merlin 24/7 solution. Through this app, Mitie’s Security Officers at Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City will receive real time insights and updates to their mobile devices on relevant security issues. The updates will be supported by intelligence from security analysts both at Mitie’s Global Security Operations Centre (GSOC) and URW’s in house team.

Commenting on the new contract award, Jason Towse, Managing Director, Business Services, Mitie, said: “We’re extremely excited to have started our partnership with Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield with this new contract to deliver security services for their shopping centres in London. As experts in providing security services to many retail and public space customers, we look forward to using our industry-leading technology to support our frontline colleagues, helping create safe and secure environments for Westfield customers and ensuring they continue to have a great experience.”
