MITIE secures contract for new systems installations with DTZ

MITIE is pleased to announce that they have recently been selected to design, install and maintain new state of the art electronic security systems at prestigious multi-tenant office complexes managed and maintained by PRUPIM and DTZ. 

The company’s electronic security specialists were commissioned by DTZ to assist in identifying the most suitable IP based Access Control, CCTV and ID management systems to meet the needs of the Finsbury Circus and Minster Court sites in London. 

The new systems, which will support DTZ in protecting the communal areas of both buildings, were designed to offer them flexibility for future expansion over the existing networks as tenant occupancy levels rise. The systems will also support enhanced security coverage allowing the on site security teams to have improved internal and external surveillance capabilities. 

The installation at Finsbury Circus was part of a major investment in the redevelopment of the office complex and required the MITIE team to work to a tight 8 week deadline to ensure that the security systems were in place for the opening of the new premises. 

The award of this contract further strengthens the relationship between MITIE and DTZ for whom they already provide manned security services across the UK. 

Commenting on the contract award, Jeff Flanagan, Managing Director at MITIE’s security business said: “This contract reinforces our relationship with DTZ and we are delighted to be supporting them in the provision of security at these two high profile sites. The installation of these new CCTV and Access control systems will provide DTZ with access to best of breed technology and will support them in protecting the tenants in both buildings”

Editor’s notes 

MITIE is a people business, made up of over 44,000 talented and driven people, all working in one of our key areas of expertise: facilities, property and engineering services. 

They bring us passion and we invest in their potential. So when we say that MITIE is a company of world-class people delivering world-class services, we really mean it. The result? 20 years of growth, annual revenues of over £1.2bn, and a reputation for being the very best at what we do. 

MITIE installs, manages and maintains, making buildings and their facilities, smarter, greener, safer and better run. We do this for some of the country’s biggest private and public sector organisations, but what’s really different about us, is that we put as much effort into getting the details right for a simple plumbing job as we do to managing an entire office complex. 

MITIE is all about having the right people for every job, and the right attitude to getting it done. Simple, really, but it makes all the difference.
