Interserve secures BBC security contract extension
Support services and construction group Interserve has been awarded a two-year extension of its contract to provide security services to the BBC worth more than £20m.
Interserve has been providing the BBC with security services since 2014, when it was awarded the company’s National Security Contract on a three-year deal.
It 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. The account extension will start in early 2017.
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."
