Met Police dials 999 for Atkins

10 June 2009

Atkins has extended its service provision to its two public sector clients as it takes on critical buildings within both its Home Office and Metropolitan Police contracts.

Atkins is now delivering services to the National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA) under its Home Office contract and from July 2009 will be delivering services to the Metropolitan Police’s Central Communications Command (CCC) units. Both portfolios are extremely complex, with the CCC housing over 1,000 people across all three buildings. The CCC sites are used to house the people and technology that answer and manage the Metropolitan Police’s 999 call demand; therefore the criticality of these buildings is extremely high.

Andrew Wilkinson, Head of the Managing Agent business within Atkins, said, “The availability of the CCC buildings is critical to front-line policing in London and we are delighted to contribute to enable the Metropolitan Police’s vision for a safer London. Our performance in supporting other key Metropolitan Police buildings not only stands us in good stead for this challenge, but is also a testimony to the level of confidence the client has in Atkins.”

Gordon Russell, Director of Facilities Management for the Metropolitan Police added, “We’ve been working with Atkins for almost two years now and we trust Atkins to deliver the same high standard of service we have seen with our other buildings.”
