PEL Services awarded three-year fire alarm maintenance contract by BRE

Commercial fire, security and communication systems provider PEL Services has been awarded a three-year, fully comprehensive contract for fire alarm service and maintenance at the Building Research Establishment (BRE) headquarters in Watford.

The BRE is a world-leading, multi-disciplinary building science centre with a mission to improve buildings through research and knowledge generation. In fact, the BRE has been making a positive difference in the built environment since 1921.

Richard Tattersall, estates compliance manager at the BRE, told Risk UK: “We had been working with a single fire alarm supplier for 15 years and were looking for a more comprehensive agreement. PEL Services was successful in the tender process. PEL is flexible when it comes to meeting our needs and we have been very happy with the company’s service.”
