Project: Holbeck Towers, Leeds
Service: Manned Guarding / Detection
January 2014 – January 2016
Keepmoat Ltd, now part of Engie was a community regeneration and housebuilding company in the United Kingdom with a £1bn turnover and over 3,250 people across 22 regional offices.
Keepmoat were employed to build a total of 108 units (74 apartments & 34 houses) with a total contract value of circa £14m. The client was “Sustainable Communities 4 Leeds”.
Acclaimed Security were appointed as the security contractor to protect the site out of hours for the duration of the two year project. As the site was so spread out, Acclaimed Security provided two Security Officers to guard the site Mon-Fri 17.00 – 08.00 and 24 hours on weekends. An electronic detection system was also installed along the perimeter fencing so that the guards were aware if the fence-line was breached and could therefore respond quickly to that particular area.
During the project several attempted thefts were prevented and Keepmoat completed the project without any security issues.
“The potential of theft, damage to plant and the inevitable blatant break-in, was a significant risk to Keepmoat which required a specialist security outfit that not only offered excellence in service and management, but also a good understanding of the geographical area. Acclaimed firmly ticked that box.
The service, management and key on site presence has been faultless. Backed with your direct visual presence across all my schemes you have offered peace of mind within tasking areas of Leeds.
Moving forward Acclaimed would figure highly in my future plans, of which I’d have no hesitation in securing their services for either my new build or refurbishment contracts.”
Ian Allen, Senior Contracts Manager Keepmoat
