CBRE Extends Rathbone Square Security Contract

Company News, Front-of-House/Security, Contract Awards, EMEA
CBRE has renewed its contract with Axis Security at the new Rathbone Square development in Central London.

CBRE has been working with Axis Security at Rathbone Square since the beginning of 2017 when the development was still in its construction phase.

 

Rathbone Square, just north of Oxford Street, is a 2.5 acre estate, which includes the new UK home for social media giant Facebook, as well as 142 private residential apartments, a carefully curated retail site featuring shops and restaurants and a landscaped public square.

 

Facebook officially moved in to the 240,000 sq. ft. building in December 2017, with capacity for 2000 employees working across six floors of Grade A office space. A high-profile client, the security officers have to deal with a number of issues, including the physical management of external media.

 

The Axis Security team at Rathbone Square comprises of a core team of 13 security staff. All employees were hand-selected and recruited by Axis Security.

 

Eleanor Petch, CBRE Operations Manager at Rathbone Square, says Axis Security has performed above expectations: “Rathbone Square has been a continually-changing project over the last year. The Axis Security team was mobilised during the construction phase and were extremely useful in helping to manage multiple contractors.

 

“The team has demonstrated excellent knowledge and experience and have adapted impressively to all the challenges and demands faced. We had no hesitations in renewing the contract.”

 

David Mundell, Managing Director at Axis Security says the team at Rathbone Square deserves credit: “To have this contract extended is recognition of the impressive work our team have been doing. It has been a difficult challenge, but the team, brought together from a number of different sites, has bonded into a cohesive unit that has proved it is able to handle the demands of this high profile development.”
