During the past 3 years, Axis has established and built upon an excellent working relationship with the Metropolitan Police due to our dedication, well planned approach and the ability to hand over projects completed on time and within budget. From the inception of the contract, we have completed an expansive portfolio of work that ranges from decorative works to site demolitions, operating within a sensitive and high security environment.
We undertook a demolition project involving over 40 houses that had been empty for over a decade to make way for a new driving training centre. Part of the comprehensive schedule of works, involved asbestos removal and working with ecologists upon the discovery of bat roosts. In close liaison with all service providers, the extensive disposal of materials and site clearance was carried out over an 8/10 week period.
Major roof repairs were carried out at Acton and Islington, as well as internal & external painting works. Specialist works at Acton, included installation of a disabled lift facility to provide better access to members of staff and the public.
Various works at a number of Police Station sites included: Notting Hill, where we converted a kitchen area into a locker suite. At Hendon Training Centre, extensive external works included installing a new security perimeter fence, security gate and barriers, electrical works and various ground works including Car Park resurfacing, lining and signage. Conversion works from Locker rooms to a new modern staff catering facility was carried out at Fresh Wharf, all within a working 24/7 operational environment.
Our relationship with the Metropolitan Police is built on trust and our commitment to do the job right first time and exceed expectations. Communication has been fundamental to the projects. Each project has been skilfully project managed from the outset to completion by a dedicated Liaison Officer to each site and our hands-on approach to project managing has been commended.
Our highly skilled operatives, all security cleared, were chosen specifically to work as a team on all 37 Police Project Sites during the last 3 years, to provide consistency of knowledge in line with Met Police protocol and processes in place, all equally passionate about their trades and professional in their delivery.
