Lasting Longer with Trigon and Backing-up Battersea

12 May 2017 | Updated 01 January 1970

Trigion says it will make the decision between electronic security, manned guarding or a combination of the two easier.

The firm has always offered a technology plus people approach but as two services managed and invoiced separately.

Recognising that investing in security equipment means high capital expenditure at the outset, Trigion’s new offering combines a technical and manned security solution that spreads the cost over the length of the contract.

Unlike standard security contracts which are based on manned guarding hourly rates and equipment costs, the single solution price means that the overall costs are reduced. In one case Trigion estimates it has saved a client over £2 million over two years, while still providing 24/7 security coverage.

Neil Ricketts, Technical Services Director explained: “The logical step is to integrate tech and manned guarding so that clients get an ‘all in one’ solution and an all in one price. And that way contracts and relationships are always going to last much longer.


Battersea Power Station

Incentive Lynx Security has been chosen to play a role at Battersea Power Station by delivering a range of security services. Its remit includes the provision of a 31 strong security team responsible for security management, manned guarding and CCTV monitoring at the 42-acre site as it undergoes a £9 billion refurbishment. 

The Battersea Power Station project which is already part occupied, will be the centre focus of the regenerated 40 acre site which will house a blend of shops, cafes, restaurants, art and leisure facilities, office space and residential accommodation.

Incentive Lynx will be responsible for ensuring there is a safe environment as the development grows.  Craig Pickard, Lynx MD, said: “We handle security at several multi-use, growing and complex locations and so we understand the challenges involved. We will be working closely with the community, looking to the Battersea area for recruitment and procurement needs, to support the Development’s commitment to local engagement.”
