During the past few years, we've unfortunately had to face up to the fact that the world often isn't a very safe place. That's why, more than ever, safety is a top priority for many large cities. Including London, where safety measures were cranked up to never-seen-before levels after the attacks in 2005. Everyone is constantly on the lookout for ways of making and keeping buildings as safe as possible. One of the ways to achieve that is making the switch to centralized and supervised parcel processing. In London, we spoke to Bevan Vollenhoven, building manager of Telephone House, about how his choice of Bringme fits in with the current situation.
"We've come a long way to get where we are now." Bevan doesn't mince words: security in London is a real head-scratcher. For building managers like him, it's a full-time job. "There's a sense these days that attacks no longer have specific targets, but that the buildings whose security is weakest are singled out. So everyone's pushing hard in order not to be that weakest link." Telephone House is located in bustling East London, where tall buildings are springing up like mushrooms. "This building is home to seven completely different companies, which is quite a challenge when it comes to safety regulations." Seven companies who each put their security in Bevan's hands. "Our safety regulations are particularly stringent. We attend training courses and continuously work on improving and tightening our procedures."
