Cundall launches Security specialism with key hire Share this article

Cundall has appointed Darren Wood as Principal Security Consultant to lead its new Security specialism.

With over 15 years’ experience in both contracting and consulting businesses within the security industry, Darren has worked on prestigious schemes such as 22 Bishopsgate in London and across the UK as well as other international projects. He will bring Cundall valuable knowledge and expertise in developing its new Security specialism.

Explains Darren; “Cundall’s new division is a specialist Security consultancy, providing a holistic offering to customers in order to understand the real-time security threats and risks, advise on how to mitigate them effectively, design solutions and offer advice on how to operationally manage the security of their business on a day-to-day basis.”

Continues Paul Kenyon, Building Services Partner; “For many years Cundall has offered elements of security within our core disciplines of MEP and structures. With more clients considering security as a primary concern, our engineers were regularly being asked to provide a comprehensive service. So, we are expanding Cundall’s expertise by creating a bespoke specialism led by Darren, an engineer with wide-ranging industry insight.”

The new specialism will offer a range of Security consultancy services that can address a client’s security needs throughout the project lifecycle, from strategic definition, concept and developed design, through to technical design, construction, handover and in use.

Continues Paul; “Not only will the new Security specialism compliment many of our other specialist services such as IT & Comms, Building automation and Smart Buildings Integration, but it fits our strategy of providing a truly holistic design service for our clients.”

Darren concludes; “Offering a complete and joined-up service is important to customers given the wider ranging, constantly evolving threats that they, their people and their businesses face on a day-to-day basis.”
