New Contract Win With Costain Vinci JV for Scottish Water

H&M Security are very proud to announce a new strategic security partnership with Costain Vinci JV for Scottish Water

Scottish Water provides drinking water to 2.45 million households and 154,000 business customers in Scotland. Every day it supplies 1.3 billion litres of drinking water and takes away 840 million litres of waste water from customers' properties and treats it before returning it to the environment. We will be working closely with Costain Vinci JV to deliver unique and specific capabilities, initially in one of the UK's most high profile sites.

The Shieldhall Tunnel will be Scotland’s largest waste water tunnel, 4.70m in diameter and 3.1 miles long, and will form part of the biggest upgrade of Glasgow’s waste water network in more than a century. It will run between Queen’s Park and the Craigton industrial estate, and will resolve water quality and reduce flooding issues at key locations in the area served by the Shieldhall Waste Water Treatment Works. 

Tunnelling works in a urban environment requires a comprehensive safety and security systems have been provided to protect vital parts of the installations and there is a need for alert, competent and experienced uniformed security staff at all times, day and night throughout the year to augment these systems.

We have developed a working partnership with the team and gained a comprehensive understanding of their requirements and service levels. We have recruited and trained a team of security officers who are able to deal with a variety of situations and threats. These include but are not limited to:

Safety of people or children trying to gain access to the site

Damage to plant and equipment which can cause delays to the project

Environmental protesters trying to cause trouble

People interfering with the fencing on the highways

Each officer has been carefully selected and managed to ensure they can efficiently deal with all types of people including vulnerable adults and children. This is another example of our ability to tailor a service to specific customer requirements and continuously provide a large contract with a close and personal service through our experienced management team.

Frank McLintock, Commercial Director for H&M Security Ltd commented: “This contract continues our expansion into new areas of security and the UK, diversifying our security portfolio across the construction, commercial, corporate and public sectors. It is a huge statement of intent for our ambitious company and a further validation of our professional standards and commitment to excellence".assa.
