“Amazing” 125th anniversary celebration at Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge was the “amazing venue” for The Tooley & Foster Partnership’s 125th anniversary party on Wednesday, 4 October. More than 100 clients, fellow consultants and staff joined in the celebrations.

Many guests complimented TFP on the choice of venue with its stunning views – including the highlight of seeing the bridge lift twice for shipping, which everyone (except those afraid of heights!) watched through the glass floor.

Others commented on the warm welcome they received from TFP staff and one guest summed it all up with “an exceptional evening.”

After thanking everyone for coming, Partner Keith Everitt gave a brief outline of the practice’s history and said: “TFP is nothing without its staff whose wealth of experience has contributed so much to the success of the practice.”

TFP achieves Cyber Essentials certification

Cyber Essentials
IT Manager David Wollaston proudly displays TFP’s Cyber Essentials certificate

The Tooley & Foster Partnership has achieved IASME-accredited Cyber Essentials certification. Cyber Essentials is a government-backed, industry-supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common cyber attacks and to put essential security controls in place.

IT Manager David Wollaston said: “Cyber Essentials is increasingly becoming a must-have standard for professionals across the construction sector. It is particularly welcome that our accreditation coincides with Cyber Resilience Week 2017. This is a signal to our clients, partners and the wider community that we take data security very seriously.”

Partner Khosro Bashi said: “As an RIBA Chartered Practice, the Architects’ Code of Conduct already requires us to ensure that adequate security is in place to safeguard paper and electronic records for clients. We have taken the next step in implementing a proportionate level of cyber protection.

“Whilst the UK construction industry has not yet suffered any known high profile cyber attacks, at Tooley & Foster we can now be sure that we have strong systems in place for protecting our data.”
