Trigion Security Services will secure a construction site in Oxford Trigion Security Services has started a manned-guarding contract with Laing O’Rourke, through its Select Plant Hire section on a large construction site in Oxford. The contract is initially in support of the in-house team. Construction sector expertise Neil Barham, Trigion Operations Director – Manned Guarding, said, “Laing O’Rourke chose us for this project due to our knowledge and expertise in the construction sector. It has seen our operations at high profile sites in London and wants to adopt those parameters at its Oxford site.” Alex Moore, Trigion’s Contract Manager for Construction, is Site Manager Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) qualified, demonstrating the company’s expertise in the sector; which is something appreciated by construction project managers.
Primary focus will be on the gatehouse and weighbridge operations Choosing to employ Trigion means Knauf—a suppliers of gypsum-based building materials—didn’t have to choose between quality and quantity for its new security contract at its Sittingbourne site in Kent. Manned guarding Both the manned guarding hours and pay rates are being increased from its previous supplier meaning Trigion can provide a higher quality, more experienced and focused manned guarding service. The move also means Knauf’s management is free to concentrate on its product range, rather than dealing with security issues. Neil Barham, Trigion Operations Director, Manned Guarding, said, “We are Living Wage employers and pride ourselves on recruiting and retaining quality people. The Knauf contract is a great example of a company recognising the benefits paying a higher wage brings in terms of commitment and quality.” Protecting Sittingbourne Plasterboard Plant Knauf’s Sittingbourne Plasterboard Plant is currently one of the fastest running production lines in Europe and has become a model for a new generation of Plasterboard Plants for the Knauf group. The Sittingbourne facility houses the UK Plaster Plant which produces a comprehensive range of gypsum plaster and jointing products. To date, in excess of £100 million has been invested in advanced manufacturing technology at the site. Its products include flooring, dry walls, plasterboard, and ceilings. The Trigion guards’ primary focus will be the gatehouse and weighbridge operations when the contract begins in January 2017.

Front of house services The contract for the tenanted office buildings will include manned guards providing front of house/concierge services. Trigion offers ‘Hostmanship’ training to all its guards so that they have high levels of competence and confidence in offering customer care. Manned and electronic solutions Trigion’s popular ‘People Plus’ option means clients receive manned and electronic solutions from a single supplier. It provides technical security remotely from its security operations centre – so that there is always protection in place. Neil Barham, Operations Director – Manned Guarding, at Trigion, said: “The work we have done on our existing contract for the client’s Park Lane property has shown our ability to provide quality security services to their clients. They can also see that we provide quality team members, thanks to our investment in training and development and the fact we are London Living Wage employers.”
