Braemar Estates contract grows Ward Security’s presence in the North

Ward Security has been appointed as security partner to a portfolio of five prestigious residential properties managed by Braemar Estates, the specialist property management division of Brooks Macdonald Group plc.

The contract will see Ward Security provide concierge and security services to the Beetham Tower as well as the Lumiere building in Manchester, XQ7 in Salford Quays, Alexandra Tower in Liverpool and The Gateway in Leeds. Ward Security began working with Braemar Estates in January 2013 to manage the security services for the West Tower in Liverpool.

David Ward, Managing Director of Ward Security said “We are delighted that Braemar Estates has chosen us to manage the security for some of its most luxurious and landmark residential properties. The Beetham Tower is not only the highest building in Manchester it is one of the tallest residential buildings in Europe and certainly puts Ward Security firmly on the map in Manchester as well as helping us to demonstrate our capabilities and credentials to businesses based in the North of England.”

Earlier this year Ward Security recruited Lea Potts, who is based in Manchester, as Associate Director of Operations to establish a new regional office for the security company and grow the central client base.

Robert Dean, Commercial Manager of Braemar Estates said “Since working with Ward Security we have been continually impressed by the professionalism of its security personnel and the care its senior management team has shown in creating and delivering both practical and cost effective security plans for our buildings. We feel very well looked after by Ward Security and trust them implicitly with the security needs for our highest profile property portfolio.”
