DMA Maintenance has landed the design and build contract working on 18 Biological Services Units at University College London (UCL).
Awarded following a competitive tender process, the four-year, multi-million-pound deal comprises the MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) and fabric services upgrades necessary to ensure continued Home Office compliance.
Founded in 1826, UCL is London’s leading multidisciplinary university, with more than 13,000 staff and 42,000 students from 150 different countries. The university’s main campus is located in the Bloomsbury area of central London, with several institutes and teaching hospitals elsewhere in the heart of the city and a satellite campus at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London’s, Stratford.
Commenting on the contract award, DMA said: “We are proud to be supporting UCL and look forward to delivering this critical project and the prospect of a long and mutually rewarding relationship.”
Creating a positive visitor experience in a Hybrid world of work
While some personnel are finally returning to the office – the great majority of organisations (up to 83 per cent) anticipate a hybrid mix of on-premises and working from home to continue for the foreseeable future.
This means that when it comes to providing access to the workplace, where once it was simply enough to maintain a welcoming reception for visitors, organisations today must also keep a close eye on access permissions in real-time to keep buildings safe and secure while ensuring they comply with compliance.
Pitney Bowes Smart Access Management in association with FMJ has produced a new White Paper which explains how to create a welcoming, actively managed environment for authorised people.
It explains how new Smart Access Management™ (SAM) delivers a complete, real-time and data-driven view of all your people, visitors and contractors, to help give you greater control and visibility.
