Our Project Managers held pre-start meetings with the client to ensure all working methods/requirements were agreed including a communication plan. A mobilisation team/plan was formed to ensure key tasks were carried out (integration, contract specific training, asset data exchange, health and safety/RAMS review on site along with our NEBOSH qualified Operations Manager, customer engagement). TUPE was not required; we resourced the contract with existing local based engineers. As all engineers carried a PDA; our head office management team were able to track their locations and jobs scheduled. This also allowed us to see on a live basis using our inhouse Cash system, whether the engineers are attending the site, whether they are on time and completing the works.

Zicam Systems Group Ltd installed a bespoke multi layered solution. Zicam installed Internal and external Hanwha CCTV system supplemented with Paxton Access Control to maintain secure entry and egress of the building. We were presented with an ideal opportunity to implement this upgrade as the building was going through a full ground up renovation. Zicam Systems Group Ltd established a schedule of regular contract meetings with School representatives to review performance, address concerns, and discuss ongoing security needs. These meetings provided an opportunity to maintain open lines of communication, share updates, and address any emerging issues. A dedicated Project Manager was assigned from Zicam Systems Group Ltd to oversee the day-to-day operations and act as the primary point of contact for the School. The contract manager was responsible for managing the security team, ensuring compliance with contractual obligations, and addressing any operational challenges. We implemented a robust performance monitoring system to track key performance indicators (KPIs) and ensure the delivery of high-quality security services. KPIs included response times, incident resolution rates, CCTV uptime, and customer satisfaction levels. Regular reports were generated and shared with the School to provide visibility into the security operations, highlight achievements, and identify areas for improvement.
