Security consultancy team awarded place on ESPO’s £60m national framework Share this article

Director of Security, Darren Wood, and his team have been selected as one of only five security consultancies appointed onto the prestigious ESPO UK wide framework

The security specific element of the framework enables the design, supply, service and maintenance of integrated security systems including access control, video surveillance and intrusion detection systems and is valued at £60m. It will initially run for 3 years until 2022 with the option to extend for a further 12 months and is split into multiple “lots” to cover different deliverables, of which security consultancy is one of them.

This is a major coup for our fastest growing specialist team, as over £1 billion is spent through the whole ESPO Framework each year in the government sector with town council, in the public sector with NHS / health trusts, emergency services and housing associations, in the education sector with schools and academies, and with non-for-profit charitable businesses.

Darren commented; "An award on a prestigious framework such as ESPO is a major achievement for the team and is testament to the knowledge, experience and expertise that we collectively have in delivering security projects in the education, government and public sectors.”
