Shakespeare's Globe Extends Security Contract

Front-of-House/Security, Contract Awards, EMEA, Service Provider News

Cordant Security has won a two-year extension of its security contract with Shakespeare’s Globe on Bankside in London.

 

The company, part of Cordant Group, has been providing 24-hour security services at the complex since last year. The site includes The Globe Theatre, Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, education and research faculty and guided tours, as well as retail, catering and events spaces. The iconic venue attracts over a million visitors each year. Cordant’s remit includes a variety of search and screening solutions, internal and external patrolling, overt and plain clothes security, and access control, including keyholding, deliveries and car park management.  Officers will continue to live monitor CCTV and report and respond to any incidents. They have also been equipped with specific customer service training to answer queries from members of the public.

 

Announcing the extension, Sandra Lynes Timbrell, Director of Exhibition & Tour and Visitor Experience, said:

"We have been thoroughly impressed by Cordant Security, whose team remains committed to prioritising the safety of our guests, as well as further enhancing the overall visitor experience. This contract extension is well deserved."

 

Brendan Musgrove, Cordant Security's managing director, added:

"We have taken great pride at being given the opportunity to support one of the UK’s most famous venues – and this has been demonstrated by our exceptional service levels. We are extremely pleased to cement this important relationship and we look forward to the next two years and beyond."
