The Blue Fin Building

The Blue Fin Building

Contract Overview

Incentive Lynx Security has provided security guarding services for Time Inc (formerly IPC Media) at the Blue Fin Building since its completion in 2006.

The Scenario

For the first 9 month fit out stage the security service requirement was much different from now. The 500,000 square foot property houses the headquarters of Time Inc, the UK’s leading publisher of print and digital magazine content.

Overnight, on completion of the fit out, Incentive Lynx had to adjust the service delivery to meet the very different demands of a vibrant, busy head office of a media company. A high percentage of the people in the building are visitors or free-lance workers so the pass system administration and access control management was a challenge but effectively handled by our site team.

A team of 31 security personnel are employed at the site. The annual contract value is £945K.

Services provided at Time Inc include:

  • Site Security Management
  • 24/7 site presence / static manned guarding
  • building patrols (internal & external)
  • out of hours reception services
  • key holding services
  • CCTV monitoring
  • loading bay logistics
  • access control administration and pass management
