CBRE has renewed Axis Security’s contract to guard the new Rathbone Square development in central London.

 

The real estate consultancy has been working with Axis Security at Rathbone Square since the beginning of 2017, when the development was still in its construction phase.

 

Rathbone Square, just north of Oxford Street, is a 2.5-acre estate that includes the new UK home for social media giant Facebook, as well as 142 private residential apartments, a carefully curated retail site featuring shops and restaurants and a landscaped public square.

 

Facebook moved into the 240,000-square-foot building last December. It has capacity for 2,000 employees working across six floors of grade A office space. As it is a high-profile client, the security officers have to deal with a number of issues, including the physical management of external media.

 

The Axis Security team at Rathbone Square comprises a core team of 13 security staff. All employees were hand-selected and recruited by Axis Security.
