CBRE has renewed its contract with Axis Security to continue providing security services at the Rathbone Square development in Central London - which began in 2017 when the development was still in its construction phase.

Rathbone Square, just north of Oxford Street, is a 2.5 acre estate, which 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 officially moved in to the 240,000sq.ft building in December 2017, with capacity for 2000 employees working across six floors of Grade A office space. 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 the Square comprises of a core team of 13 security staff.

Eleanor Petch, CBRE Operations Manager said:“Rathbone Square has been a continually changing project over the last year. The Axis Security team was mobilised during the construction phase and were extremely useful in helping to manage multiple contractors."
