Client: Anglia Ruskin University
Key Factors: Patrol and lock/unlock support
The challenge: Anglia Ruskin University had purchased a large commercial property opposite the student halls, adjacent to the Anglia Ruskin University and college. The intention was to create further facilities for the students which would include a library and administration office. Due to planning issues and the property itself, this work was delayed. A quick solution was required to assist the University with keeping the site secure while building work was completed.
The solution: Working closely with the University’s own in-house security manager, GUK provided an experienced and skilled team onsite to work alongside the University’s in-house team. This gave the GUK team the opportunity fully integrate with the University security team, and to be recognised as campus security staff, which helped students feel at ease with the new team.
The team were able to ensure that the site remained off-limits to the students at all times for their own safety, as well as to prevent disturbances from students, which meant the work could be completed smoothly and efficiently without disruptions.
