The internationally-renowned Grade 1 listed Lloyd’s building was designed by the architect Richard Rogers and took eight years to build.
TagEvac Evacuation System installed 2014.
“TagEvac has definitely raised the profile of our evacuation. It has helped us to review our Fire Marshals and collaboration has been very good as everybody understands it.
The system ensures good knowledge of the evacuation of our building. Our first evacuation using TagEvac went very well and was commented on by senior Managers and Directors. We know that we now have a very good system in place”Trevor Jennings, Risk Manager, Lloyd’s of London
Unlike many other insurance brands, Lloyd’s is not a company; it’s a market where members join together as syndicates to insure risk.
Much of Lloyd’s business works by subscription, where more than one syndicate takes a share of the same risk. Business is conducted face-to-face between brokers and underwriters in the Underwriting Room.
When we talk of Lloyd’s, we’re really referring to two distinct parts. The market, which is made up of many independent businesses, and the Corporation of Lloyd’s, which is there – broadly speaking – to oversee that market. These parts are distinct, but far from independent. Both work closely to maintain high standards of performance across the market.
With up to 6000 in the building at any one time Lloyd’s take the safety and welfare of their people seriously, so when they looked to update and improve their evacuation procedure they turned to TagEvac for a solution.
We were invited to help design a scheme which would simplify the evacuation and help Fire Wardens to carry out their checks easily and effectively. This meant having an appreciation of how the building worked and how information on the state of evacuation could be easily understood by the people in charge.
