Healthcare plan provider Simplyhealth has awarded a contract for the protection of its four office buildings in Andover and Winchester, to Venture Security. The contract is for the management of all day-to-day physical security for the insurer and will initially run for three years, with the potential to be extended for a further two years.
Venture Security will be working with Simplyhealth’s facilities management team to provide a range of services including trained and SIA licensed security officers manning reception in all four buildings, locking and unlocking the premises each day, patrolling the sites and responding to alarms. The Venture team will also be providing emergency cover as required.
Gareth Williams, Director of Estates and Environment, Simplyhealth, commented: “After experiencing issues with our previous security provider, we decided to review our options. We were really impressed by Venture, especially in relation to how technology is integrated within their security services. The fact they are a local company was another big tick for us.”
Paul Howe, Venture managing director, commented: “We’re delighted to be working with Simplyhealth and to be supporting the facilities team to keep their people, premises and assets safe.”
