New contract awarded: The Place Aparthotel

FGH is pleased to announce the addition of The Place Aparthotel, Manchester to our portfolio of outstanding clients. The Place Aparthotel is a grade II listed former cotton warehouse located in Manchester city centre and prides itself on the exclusivity of its accommodation and service. The venue itself boasts a restaurant, bar and fully equipped, state of the art gym facilities. In 2014 it was recognised in the Serviced Apartments of the Year category in the Manchester Tourist Awards. The Place is swiftly becoming the venue of choice for those looking for quality accommodation, function space and facilities in the Greater Manchester area.

This prestigious contract became available after our client had found themselves disappointed by both the quality of the door staff and the service they had received from a previous supplier. FGH fought off competition from a number of interested parties to secure the contract: our success was due in no small part to the professionalism of the frontline staff we currently deploy. Prior to appointing us our client conducted their own research. A visit to some of the other venues that we deploy to convinced them that we were by far the most professional company on the shortlist with staff appropriate to the image of their business.

FGH will be drawing upon its wealth of experience within the Door Supervision and Events Sectors to look after the guests of the aparthotel and the attendees of the numerous events and parties accommodated in the venue. We project deploying staff at between 2- 5 events per week in addition to regular staff on a Friday and Saturday nights.

‘We are delighted to be chosen to supply security services to The Place Aparthotel’ explains Ben Knott, Senior Manager. ‘We have been extremely careful about our expansion plans in the Manchester area, opting to concentrate on venues that align with our company ethos of ‘Quality People in Quality Places’. The Place is a perfect fit with this ethos. This is a contract that will enable us to excel, combine the strengths of our award winning events division with our already well-reputed Door Supervision staff. It is a welcome by-product that we will also be able to reward some of our excellent events staff with additional hours at this exceptional venue.’
FGH will deploy its IFSEC Events Team of the year at numerous high profile events and venues over the summer. If you wish to be considered for any vacancies please click here to apply to work for us
