Construction and facilities management business Polyteck Group has won a new mechanical and engineering contract at the Royal Exchange in the City of London.
The one-year contract cements Polyteck's long-standing partnership with managing agent Metrus, which oversees the management of the Royal Exchange.
As part of the deal, Polyteck will deliver a range of services at the grade I listed building, including black building tests, security and building management systems, fire services, fall arrest systems, and water sampling for TVC and legionella.
Polyteck will also be responsible for maintaining emergency lighting, generators, air handling units (AHU), fan coil units (FCU), chillers, sanitary ware, boilers, tap temperatures, and drainage (float and pan lines).
The Royal Exchange was founded by Thomas Gresham in the 16th century as a centre of commerce for the City of London. Built in 1844, it was once home to the Lloyd's insurance market. The current structure is home to a Courtyard Grand Café, Threadneedle Cocktail Bar, the Sauterelle Restaurant, luxury shops, and offices.
