Premier Technical Services Group (PTSG) is set to undertake further maintenance works at the iconic BBC Television Centre in London.
PTSG has been contracted to refurbish the old cradles as well as carryout re-testing and commissioning at the centre in Wood Lane.
The announcement comes on the back of the news that PTSG has also been contracted to re-instate the monorail systems on the building back into working order so the external windows can be changed and, in the future, cleaned.
Scott Hawtrey, project director at PTSG, said: “We are delighted to have been asked once again to deliver a series of works at the BBC Television Centre. The building has been vacated by the BBC and is set to be turned into residential properties and industrial units, including cafes, nurseries and shops.
“As part of that overhaul, we have been asked to carry out a series of works on the cradles which are vital to the upkeep of the building.”
The centre opened in June 1960 and is one of the most recognisable facilities of its type, having appeared as the backdrop for many BBC programmes.
Parts of the building are Grade II listed, including the central ring and Studio 1.
It was announced in September 2010 that the BBC would cease broadcasting from the Television Centre in 2013. In June 2011, the BBC announced the centre was on the market and was sold a year later to property developers Stanhope plc for around £200m.
