Securing the Hive

Trigion provides varied security at first joint public and university library in Europe.

Trigion Security Services has won the contract to provide security at The Hive in Worcester; a community facility with 10,000m2 of public space, over five floors, which receives around a million visitors a year.

Neil Ricketts, Security & 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 cafe, exhibition spaces, theatre, archive and archaeology service, and landscaped environment, with terraces and gardens, among other things.

“Such a varied operation requires specialist security in order to deter those people with less-than community minded activities planned and provide a reassuring, but unobtrusive, presence for everyone else.

“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.”
