Cordant Security, part of Cordant Group, has secured a two-year contract extension to continue providing a wide range of dedicated security solutions at the iconic Shakespeare’s Globe on Bankside, which attracts over a million visitors each year.
Since last year, Cordant has supplied a 24/7 staffed security solution, 365-days a year, at Shakespeare’s Globe, which comprises the Globe Theatre, Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, education and research faculty and guided tours, as well as retail, catering and events spaces.
Cordant’s remit includes a variety of search and screening solutions, internal and external patrolling, overt and plain clothes security, and access control, including keyholding, deliveries and car park management. Officers will continue to live monitor CCTV and report and respond to any incidents. They have also been equipped with specific customer service training to answer queries from members of the public.
Sandra Lynes Timbrell, Director of Exhibition & Tour and Visitor Experience, said: “Over the past year we have been thoroughly impressed by Cordant Security, whose team remains committed to prioritising the safety of our guests, as well as further enhancing the overall visitor experience. This contract extension is well deserved.”
Brendan Musgrove, Managing Director at Cordant Security, said: “We have taken great pride at being given the opportunity to support one of the UK’s most famous venues – and this has been demonstrated by our exceptional service levels. We are extremely pleased to cement this important relationship and we look forward to the next two years and beyond.”
The contract will now run until 2021.
