December 2009; London, UK; Senator Security, one of the UKs leading independent security services providers is gaining new business and a strong reputation in the Civil and Construction industry in the UK. Senators own, UK based, remote monitoring centre is at the heart of its future Civil and Construction projects; manned 24/7/365 it interfaces with both deployed human and technology operations and provides a check point report for all sites under Senators care. The same processes, techniques and technologies are being implemented on similar projects covering surveillance and manned guarding for your civil engineering development, construction site, redevelopment site, demolition site, motorway and rail construction (including PTS) throughout the UK. The Senator Operation and Monitoring Centre is also the location for all specialist training, ongoing training programs and bespoke training for specific deployments.
Senator continues to build strong, long term relationships with the major construction and infrastructure development companies in the UK, being able to provide the on-site personnel to deliver the visible security and increasingly being invited to provide a Managed Service including the integration of access control and surveillance technology including the installation of turnstiles, CCTV cameras (hardwired, imaging, wireless and radio technology), specialist software, bio/image recognition and proprietary coded chip cards all with the same traffic and usage reporting. These sophisticated measures are becoming more commonplace as the cost, hazard and hassle of theft and vandalism on or around construction sites increases.
Andy Grice, Senator Securitys Operations Director commented, Millions of pounds are lost in theft of assets from construction sites every week but we understand the real effect is in the resulting delays, additional costs, supply chain hold ups, staffing, hire costs, insurance and aggravation this causes. Our job is to secure your working environment day and night, rain or shine for safety and protection of your people, your suppliers and the equipment, assets and supplies needed to complete on time and on budget. With our specialist construction experience we are ideally placed to develop and implement integrated security systems both human and technology.
We are integral to the success of a development project; often on site as the first turf is turned, ensuring the entire site is secure for the protection of assets, staff and visitors – to deter the instances of planned or opportunist theft and vandalism. As with our success in the rail environment, we have eliminated the theft of copper cable and enabled the construction to continue without costly delay same goes in this sector; the theft of equipment or the damage to property often causes huge delays, cost and additional risk assessments if the site has been made dangerous through trespass. With the more iconic landmark and stadia constructions that we have been involved in from the outset we have collaborated closely with Tier 1 contractors, sub-contractors and associated companies on a daily basis as with any successful project it is so often about mutual respect, confidence and communication. This is a complex and hostile environment for our personnel and technology and we are winning business through our experience gained on projects including West Quay Shopping Centre in Southampton, Cabot Circus in Bristol, Excel in London and Colchester Garrison. Sean McGranaghan, Senators Managing Director added.
Senator are gaining equal success and a strong reputation for delivering value added Security and Facilities Management provision to, amongst others, Government Buildings and Establishments, Colleges and Universities, Museums, Sports Stadiums and Leisure Centres, Residential, Manufacturing and Commercial Properties, Civil Engineering and Construction Sites, Factory and Industrial Facilities, Hospitals, Health and Education Facilities, Warehouses, Logistics and Distribution Facilities, Car Parks and Transport Infrastructure with clients including the Department for Health, Kings College (PSS) and PTS (Personal Trackside Safety) for Network Rail. Andy Grice finally adding, We have a real hands on approach; we understand and respond to client need proactively working closely and often consulted on new initiatives including Health & Safety, disaster recovery, emergency and evacuation etc and, importantly, we value our clients; this is reflected in the excellent working relationships we enjoy and maintain with both public and private organisations.
