Full steam ahead for Maersk’s new technical facility
14th September 2015
Maersk, the global shipping company, has brought in BW to deliver the fit out, M&E, IT infrastructure, audiovisual and services on its new command and control hub in Maidenhead.
The enhanced, high-tech facility will bring together Maersk’s Group IS and Line IT teams for the first time in one place. The office has been designed around how these functions interact, and to reflect the integration of the company’s working patterns. It will also gather the monitoring applications which measure, track and report on their millions of containers worldwide.
To deliver this incredibly complex project, Maersk needed a partner that could identify complications and mitigate risk. BW’s team is the safe pair of hands they were looking for – our knowledge, eye for detail and shared vision for the project were key factors in the appointment decision.
John Wheeler, contracts manager and project lead for Maersk, comments: “We ensured Maersk were confident in our ability to manage the intricacy and risk involved in such a commercially significant project. We are looking forward to making the client’s vision a reality.”
