Award Date 2011
WCS Group are responsible for the alarm response & Security Personnel for 45 Orbit Care Homes in the Warwickshire Area. We were approached by Orbit to provide an alternative proposal to the existing security solutions. They had not previously contracted the work to a specialist security provider, rather the buildings were secured by a staff of building managers employed directly by Orbit.
We needed to reduce spending by introducing new, cost effective and practical solutions, specifically tailored to the 45 sites, whilst exceeding the level of safety and security that the sites had previously been provided with.
In order to satisfy Orbits requirements, we took the following steps:
- We reviewed and confirmed the requirements of each of the sites, we looked at the locations of all sites and utilised their proximity to form an alarm response unit that not only had a response time within 15 minutes but Orbit also benefited from a security team that was vetted to BS7858, Security Screening standard as required by the Security Industry Authority SIA
