Trigion Security Services is providing security at the first joint public and university library in Europe.

 

The company has won the contract at The Hive in Worcester, a community facility with 10,000 square metres of public space on five floors that receives about a million visitors a year. 

 

Neil Ricketts, security and technical services director at Trigion, said: “The Hive describes itself as the first joint public and university library in Europe, but that sells the facility short. It also offers a café, exhibition spaces, theatre, archive and archaeology service, and landscaped environment, with terraces and gardens, among other things.”

 

He added: “Our ability to provide a mixture of electronic security solutions alongside manned security means we are perfectly placed to meet the client’s varied requirements. All our guards are trained in hostmanship – or the art of making people feel welcome – which is essential in this type of environment.”
