Cordant Security has been awarded a two-year contract extension to continue providing a wide range of security services at Shakespeare's Globe on Bankside in London until 2021.
Since last year Cordant has supplied year-round 24/7 security at the venue, which comprises the Globe Theatre, Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, education and research faculty and guided tours, as well as retail, catering and events spaces.
Cordant will provide a variety of search and screening solutions, internal and external patrolling, overt and plainclothes staff security, and access control, including key holding, deliveries and car park management. Security staff will continue to live monitor CCTV and report and respond to any incidents. They have also been equipped with specific customer service training to answer queries from members of the public.
Sandra Lynes Timbrell, the theatre's director of exhibition and tour and visitor experience, said: "Over the past year we have been thoroughly impressed by Cordant Security, whose team remains committed to prioritising the safety of our guests, as well as further enhancing the overall visitor experience. This contract extension is well deserved."
