Welcome to a new look Inside PTSG for 2020.
The year has got off to a strong start in a number of ways. All four divisions continue to deliver safely and deliver well, with a diverse spread of projects from Glamis Castle in Scotland (lightning protection) to projects in London, Manchester, Norfolk and many other locations.
We were delighted to be named ‘Small and mid-cap company of the year’ in the 12th Broadwalk Services Awards for outstanding performances in the broadly defined business services sectors. It’s the second merit-based award PTSG has received in as many months and is a pleasing reminder that the products and services we offer are of great value to our 20,000 customers.
PTSG is on the cover of the February issue of PFM magazine, the leading journal for the facilities management industry. This month’s ‘Project’ gives you an account of how we use rope access to carry out specialist services to the façade of a wide range of buildings. The photos were taken at Dickens Yard where our Buildings Access Specialists have completed a quarterly project to service and maintain the residential buildings.
I hope you enjoy this month’s Inside PTSG and, as ever, if you would like to see anything else included in future editions, please let us know.
PFM magazine, the industry’s leading journal for the facilities management industry, has devoted the cover and main article of its latest issue to Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG).
The subject is industrial rope access, or abseiling. It is one of the main access techniques used by the Group’s engineers when performing specialist services on a building’s façade, such as high-level cleaning or remedial works.
Insight: Driver fatigue
Drivers who become drowsy or fall asleep at the wheel cause thousands of crashes each year. This is one of the most common causes of serious road crashes and casualties.
Accidents are more likely to result in death or serious injury as they tend to happen on high-speed roads and a sleeping driver cannot brake or swerve to avoid or reduce the impact.
Project: One Blackfriars, London
One Blackfriars is a 52-storey mixed-use skyscraper. Due to its unique shape, it is known informally as The Vase or The Boomerang.
The main contractor for the construction was Multiplex, with whom PTSG has a track record of successful collaboration on projects including Principal Pace, One St George Wharf and Marble Arch Place.
