Automated Building & Energy Controls (ABEC) has secured a Building Management System (BMS) maintenance contract at Imperial College London. The contract will last for five years, with a possible two-year extension covering the college’s entire property estate. ABEC’s high level of service, qualified engineers and impressive infrastructure were the winning criteria for the tender agreement.

The project started in August 2012. Imperial College London wanted a specialist contractor who met the complex criteria of the brief.

ABEC won the contract based on its practical, cost effective solution. Forward thinking ensured ABEC was able to deliver the optimum outcome for Imperial College.

ABEC was able to completely align its way of working with Imperial College’s brief. Through its high calibre of engineers it was able to demonstrate it has the necessary infrastructure in place to manage the work. Fully qualified and highly experienced engineers for planned preventative maintenance and reactive works were required for the job. ABEC proved to be extremely well organised and self-sufficient in delivering the right workforce onsite.

Rakesh Patel, contracts manager at Imperial College, said: “ABEC had a competitive proposal, which could maintain the ventilation performance and effectively reach specific targets for our buildings.”

ABEC’s managing director Daniel Kittow said: “Our control systems are designed and installed to meet the most demanding specifications, according to each individual project requirements. We ensure that even the most complex projects have a smooth transition from start to finish, guaranteeing that final completion is beyond the client’s expectations.”
