Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has strengthened its association with the BBC after securing a new major maintenance contract.
PTSG’s South Suspended Access division will deliver the works at BBC Television Centre in London on behalf of MITIE.
Scott Hawtrey, divisional director at PTSG, said: “We are delighted to have secured this new maintenance contract and continue our association with the BBC. As a group, we are proud to work for such an organisation and look forward to working closely with the BBC and MITIE going forward.”
The group enjoys a strong relationship with the UK’s public-service broadcaster having recently completed works to refurbish the old cradles as well as carryout re-testing and commissioning at the centre in Wood Lane.
In the last year, PTSG engineers have also re-instated the monorail systems on the building back into working order so the external windows could be changed and, in the future, cleaned.
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.
