Integrated Security Consultants Ltd (ISC) has won the contract to provide concierge services for Electricity House, a prestigious major new development in Bristol city centre.
It is the first time that ISC has worked in the South West and with Building Management company, Gordon and Co.
Electricity House is a striking building designed by the notable Architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott and situated in a conservation area. Once a retail and office space, it has been transformed by developer Crest Nicholson into luxury apartments and returned to its former glory and art deco style. Around 84 apartments over six floors are being created and commercial units are planned for the ground floor. The first two floors opened in October 2015 and the project is due to complete April 2016.
A team or around five ISC staff will share the concierge role on a shift basis, which is currently providing a 24 hour service to residents. Duties are varied and will evolve over time as the building becomes fully occupied, but include greeting and providing any assistance to residents as required, ensuring the building is secure and safe at all times, receiving mail, answering phones and emails, monitoring the underground car park and repairing or reporting any damage.
Justine Shepherd, ISC Head of Operations, said: “The concierge is an essential front-facing role, responsible for creating the first impression for residents and guests and for the overall safety of the building and its occupants. This is a natural extension of the front of house and security role and requires outstanding levels of customer service.
“It’s a busy, central location and our staff will be required to be vigilant but friendly and flexible. I think our experience of high-end corporate events and hospitality at Wembley Stadium and other high-profile venues helped to demonstrate that we are capable of delivering this. We are delighted to be working with Gordon and Co to provide an excellent service and value for money to those residing in and using this iconic building.”
