Interserve has been awarded a two-year extension of its contract to provide security services to the BBC worth in excess of £20 million.
The company has operated security services for the BBC since April 2014, when it was awarded the corporation's national security contract - a three-year deal to safeguard properties across the UK.
Interserve 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, Greater Manchester. 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."
Interserve is the BBC’s integrated facilities management partner - providing workplace support and services including cleaning, maintenance, mechanical and electrical, signage and waste management to sites across the UK.
