Ward Security has won a contract to manage the security of Paternoster Square, adjacent to St Paul’s Cathedral.
The contract, which was awarded following a competitive tender process by the Paternoster Square Management team, will see Ward Security’s London operations team manage the security provision for the 70,000 square metres estate 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.
Paternoster Square provides office space, retail outlets and restaurants. It is home to an established business community of blue-chip companies including the London Stock Exchange as well as globally recognised and important monuments such as St Paul’s Cathedral. The site itself is of considerable historical importance, with roots tracing back to medieval times and was redeveloped in 2003.
Kevin Ward, Managing Director of Ward Security said: “We are extremely pleased to have been chosen to manage the security for Paternoster Square. It is an iconic part of the City of London and a landmark site which we are well placed to keep safe and secure.
“We have an excellent team in place who are experienced in managing large scale, mixed-used developments, and particularly of those sites that experience the added pressure of having a high footfall of visitors. We are already working closely with the team at Paternoster Square to manage a seamless take over from the incumbent of the site.”
