Behind the Scenes at Capital Icons

09 September 2015 | Updated 01 January 1970

An interactive series that looks at some of the UK’s most well known buildings in the capital has been launched by the Facilities Show.

The Protecting London series incorporates a behind-the-scenes exploration of how the capital’s most famous buildings operate with the British Museum, Royal Albert Hall, Crossrail and ExCeL London all featured.

It has exclusive videos and interviews, exploring how facilities, fire, security and safety functions operate within London’s most famous and fascinating buildings, recognising the teams who keep them running on a daily basis and revealing the special challenges they face.

The Protecting London Series offers insight into: how six million visitors are kept safe at The British Museum each year; facilities management challenges within the 19th century Grade 1 listed venue, the Royal Albert Hall; along with how the Crossrail team protect the 10,000 workers in Europe’s largest construction site; and the unique security challenges presented by the ExCeL London’s 100 acre estate.

“London is home to world class venues, infrastructure and attractions and we wanted to showcase how our industries are vital in maintaining this,” explained Charlotte Wright, Senior Content Manager, UBM EMEA. “We are really excited to bring to the forefront some of those unsung heroes that really do help to keep these buildings and our capital running.”
