UK accreditation first announced

01 June 2016

Achievement of the BSI ISO55001 accreditation for Asset Management has been announced by the Southbank Centre, one of the first in the UK to achieve this standard.

Having achieved the standard, the centre's Hilton Wells, head of technical services, paid tribute to ISS for its contribution.

"Working through the accreditation was a tremendous amount of work but a great opportunity to assess, review and create a robust system to ensure the Southbank Centre's assets are being managed effectively," he said.

"We are pleased with the success and grateful to ISS who have worked in partnership with us throughout the journey," said Mr Wells.

The award is credited with supporting the Southbank Centre's status as a leading arts venue, promoting best practice and sustainability across its estate.

ISS Private Sector chief operating officer Gary Kidd described achieving the standard as a "great accomplishment" for both organisations.

"It was a rigorous process and the accreditation is testament to the team and the hard work and dedication they have given to the project," he said.

"ISS is always looking to continuously improve, supporting our customer and their business objectives.

"This standard is evidence of that ongoing journey as we deliver assurance and best practice to our customers," said Mr Kidd.
