Integrated Security Consultants (ISC) Ltd has been awarded the contract to provide a range of security services at Brent Civic Centre, the new headquarters of Brent Council (heralded as Britain’s greenest building and managed by Bilfinger Europa Facility Management).
ISC is to supplement Bilfinger Europa’s security operation by providing security teams for the building’s special events, including council receptions and public meetings, as well as an enhanced security presence in the building at key times such as match or concert days at the neighbouring Wembley Complex facilities.
“We’re delighted to have been chosen to support Bilfinger Europa in serving this modern and iconic building,” explained ISC’s managing director Pat Carr. “It presents a number of challenges, including its mix of public and private usage, alongside its close proximity to two of the UK’s busiest sporting and entertainment venues.”
Carr added: “We look forward to providing a service that balances the needs of Brent Council, its guests and VIP visitors with those of the general public who use the facilities on a daily basis. This contract represents further diversification in our customer base which, historically, consists of a significant number of entertainment clients.”
Experience in multi-agency communication
Carr believes ISC was chosen because of its experience in multi-agency communication at Wembley Stadium, for which the company also provides integral security services.
“As security partners at Wembley,” said Carr, “we manage the day-to-day needs of a large complex and all the associated challenges, whether that’s for a select few VIP guests attending a corporate function or for 90,000 people on a major event day.”
Speaking about the security partnership, Mike Munro (account director at Bilfinger Europa) commented: “ISC’s breadth of experience, and the fact they already look after iconic buildings in this proximity, demonstrates the company’s expertise in managing diverse security requirements for complex buildings. Its team is extremely customer-facing and experienced in handling a diverse range of customers appropriately. We’re delighted to be working with them.”
