Trigion builds on security success
Trigion Security Services has begun work on a security guarding contract with Laing O’Rourke on a large construction site in Oxford through the customer’s Select Plant Hire section. The contract is initially in support of the in-house team.
Neil Barham, Trigion’s operations director for security guarding, explained to Risk UK: “Laing O’Rourke chose us for this project due to our knowledge and expertise in the construction sector. The client has witnessed our operations at high profile sites in London and wants to adopt those parameters at its Oxford location.”
Alex Moore, Trigion’s contracts manager for construction, is Site Manager Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) qualified, in turn demonstrating the company’s expertise in the sector. This is something which is very much appreciated by construction project managers.
