KM Security Solutions. part of KM Facilities Management Group PLC offering specialist cleaning services and security solutions, has been awarded a new contract to provide manned guarding & CCTV services at Kent’s Gillingham Business Park.
Gillingham Business Park is an established self-contained mixed-use business park situated between London, the Channel Tunnel and the South East coast ports of Folkestone and Dover. The Park comprises a mature development of some 100 acres (40 hectares) providing over 140,000 sq. m (1,500,000 sq. ft.) of industrial, office, retail, and leisure accommodation.
Historically the Business Park has had a manned guarding presence for over 15 years with the added element of extensive CCTV coverage and Access Control. The customer had a specific idea as to how the Park security function should continue going forward and was actively seeking suitable, quality, local service providers to improve the overall concept of maintaining a very difficult blend of effective but accommodating security service provision.
The Park needed to have a more managed attitude to be adopted by the incumbent security provider to give full support and back-up to the on-site staff that had a very real and arduous task to deal with the ever changing diverse situations that unfold on a daily basis.
Paul Stanger, sales director of KM Security Solutions PLC said:
“We listened to the specific brief required by the park manager and decided to investigate the possibility to combine the manned guarding and electronic requirements within one company where historically they have been performed by 2/3 separate companies. The outcome of our proposals were that the customer found confidence in our capabilities and awarded us both service provisions manned guarding and electronic security to The Park.”
