Consultancy, Design and Project Management
Ensuring you have the right advice to achieve the right results is critical.
Allcooper have the experience and knowledge to ensure that you achieve the desired results, in terms of coverage, functionality, aesthetics and response.
We know what you need, having worked for and with dozens of clients from all sectors. We appreciate that you may need assistance in designing and creating the security, IT and safety environment. To assist you with this, Allcooper have a sister company, Garrisons Consultants, which was specifically created to bridge the gaps between what Architects and Designers know, what is technologically possible, and what you actually need.
Garrisons has access to some of the world’s most renowned architects, designers, project managers and contractors. They draw upon our knowledge and experience, so that you, our client, achieve the desired level of security and safety for your family.
Our process involves ideally meeting the client, to understand the family situation, how the family want to live, what level of visibility of security they need and what level of security they are used to. The client may be new to the UK and needs to understand the type of threat he or she is under in this country.
The client may already have a physical security provider, in terms of bodyguards, close protection teams or a Residential Security Team. We need to determine what complementary electronic systems can be deployed to get the very best protection, at all times.
From this evaluation process we are able to generate a Risk Assessment.
This Risk Assessment will provide an outline for a sensible and cohesive security strategy. It is at this stage that we may recommend that current and established security measures and personnel are actually ‘tested’. We do this by introducing specialists to carry out penetration tests and perform other pressure techniques.
Once the Risk Assessment process is completed, we will generate a comprehensive and integrated design for your security, IT and safety systems. This design will, as a matter of priority, be designed to be discreet and aesthetically sympathetic, whilst being completely effective. This design forms the basis of a Tender Document. Garrisons can manage the entire tendering process, so that you have the best possible price and company for the work.
Garrisons can also Project Manage the installation on your behalf. We will ensure that all systems are installed and commissioned to the required standards and that any faults are rectified before they become critical. We work ‘hand in hand’ with your Main Contractors and Project Management people.
Garrisons make no pretence of being ‘independent’. We are part of the Allcooper group of companies. To this end, our Consultants are at the leading edge of technology. They have direct feedback from our engineers about the equipment we install and we are able to keep our specifications and equipment choice fresh and up to date. All our equipment is therefore field tested and proven.
Typically, Garrisons will waive a percentage of the design costs if Allcooper are appointed as installers. This means that we can ensure the quality and effectiveness of the installation, and know that the engineers have actually been fully trained on the equipment before installing it.
Service and Maintenance
Whether Allcooper are awarded the installation or not, (and we are comfortable either way), Allcooper could take over the responsibility for the on-going service and maintenance of your systems. Our expertise is in our discretion, our knowledge and our appreciation that quality service companies are hard to find.
