Kent-based Ward Security has bagged a contract with the property management arm of Deloitte Real Estate (DRE).
Ward will manage security at properties across the south east and Midlands for DRE’s Asset Property Management Unit.
Awarded following a competitive tender process, the deal covers 56 locations, including London.
Darren Ebbrell, national contracts manager at the unit, said: “We have been keen to instruct bulk awards to a single contractor.
“By doing so, we can build stronger relationships, adopt a consistent approach to delivery of services and, by working more collaboratively, drive improvements and innovations.”
Ward Security operations director Samantha Pullen said: “With the investment we have made in new technology and services, we believe we have the right infrastructure and management team in place to be able to achieve all of our goals for this year, including becoming a national player in the security market.”
