Ward Security has been appointed by Liberty Property Trust as the main security provider for its prestigious Kings Hill development near Maidstone, Kent.
The multifaceted contract, which began on 1st December 2015, sees Ward Security manage part of the 800 acre former RAF site. Kings Hill is a mixed-use development which includes offices, homes, restaurants, sports and leisure facilities as well as parks and open spaces. Ward Security’s remit is to look after the business and retail areas of the development.
Kevin Ward, Managing Director at Ward Security said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to manage the commercial areas of the Kings Hill development. It is a large scale and complex project which we are well placed to deliver, having many years of experience providing security to prestigious and often unusual sites. We pride ourselves on integrating seamlessly into communities that require a high level of visible, yet sensitive, security, and in particular working with local authorities on parks and open space security, which is a key part of this contract. Our remit will include working with the tenants and ensuring that our presence helps maintain a safe environment for all at Kings Hill.”
Ward Security has previously supplied security services to the development and Andrew Blevins, Managing Director of Kings Hill developer Liberty Property Trust said: “As part of good estate management we periodically review our various contractors to ensure best value for our business and retail tenants and we are delighted Ward Security is returning to look after them.
“We are confident that Ward Security, as a national but local security provider, offers the right approach and balance in its security provision which will be welcomed by all at Kings Hill.”
