“Maintaining and protecting this magnificent building is no mean feat”, says Gerard Cooper, Managing Director of Allcooper.
The contract will see Allcooper embed complex systems over the next three years to ensure the building has heightened protection. “Assessing the fire and security systems requirements of the Royal Albert Hall is an intricate process and we are thrilled to be involved,” says Gerard. The focus in the first instance is to maintain the existing systems, but to also work in parallel with the Royal Albert Hall team to update existing technology, improving functionality and resilience, meeting 21st century demands.
Tony Gale, Facilities Manager at the Royal Albert Hall, agrees: “Life safety systems are of paramount importance at such a high profile public venue. Ensuring such systems are operational on a daily basis is a constant challenge. Allcooper has impressed us with their understanding of our particular needs and with the professionalism with which they have commenced this important new contract.”
