Global Student Accomadation

The Brief

As with many of our clients, we've been present throughout the whole life-cycle of a project. In the case of GSA, we were approached whilst looking after the final build and snagging stages of their building's development with view to putting a security plan in to action in order to provide a reassuring security presence for the initial launch period, phasing to an ad-hoc cover service once the building had reached tick-over.

The Solution

K9 Protection Ltd have a varying pool of staff with overlapping skill-sets; all of whom are vetted to BS7858. During the time leading up to the practical completion of the project, it was possible to work with the site manger in order to get an understanding of their requirements and select a guarding team which fitted with the requirements; to be firm, fair, and above all a friendly and reassuring presence when the 280+ residents moved in, many of whom would be away from home for the first time.

Once the required person-profile has been drawn up, including skill such as first aid and mental health awareness, a staffing rota was drawn up which allowed the most beneficial coverage for the client's budget.

GSA own and operate a number of purpose built student accommodation facilities with luxury facilities across several territories.
