Nick Evans, IRS Manager at Avonline Networks, commented: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract by Bristol City Council which will allow us to demonstrate our maintenance, repair and installation capabilities. The length of the contract demonstrates BCC’s confidence in our service offering and we look forward to working closely with them to provide an improved service for the people of Bristol.”
Rich Hale, Managing Director of Avonline Networks, added: “This contract award will enable Avonline to showcase our strengths through the delivery of these works. Our engineers have over 20 years of experience across all aspects of communal TV system design, installation and maintenance services throughout the UK and we will be able to utilise this experience and expertise throughout the contact.
“Going beyond the scope of works, we will work hard to ensure that the people of Bristol benefit from the social value benefits that we can offer. In all of our works, we endeavour to ensure that we behave responsibly and in a manner that benefits the local community.”
