Foremost Security had previously worked with New College Nottingham, which recently saw a merge with Central College to create Nottingham College. During this merge, the client needed to appoint a security provider who were capable of servicing all the sites across Nottingham, providing a top-quality level of service for Key Holding, Alarm Response, Mobile Patrols, Lock and Unlock, and Manned Guarding whenever it was needed. We were invited to tender for the position, which we can proudly say we were awarded.
- Need for flexibility from security provider
- Persistent vandalism and break-ins at one site
We have now worked with Nottingham College for over two years, in which time we have supplied all of the services our client was looking for, including adhoc cover. The security presence has been increased overnight, with patrols put in place to move homeless persons along with care, from the site before staff arrive, ensuring a safe and secure environment for all. We’ve also provided Manned Guarding at a closed site in Clifton, which has previously been at the brunt of vandalism. This was one of our biggest challenges as the site was constantly receiving attention from local youths who repeatedly tried (and at times, succeeded) to break into the building. Providing the onsite guarding overnight and at the weekend acted as a visual security presence, deterring any unwanted attention.
“Nottingham College and Foremost Security have worked together for over 2 years. Foremost provide a professional and reliable service to our College, that keeps not only the premises safe, but our staff and students too. The management team are supportive for our needs and are happy to find solutions they communicate promptly and effectively also. Alongside this their team members are always polite and courteous. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”
