The challenges of security management
Being responsible for your business’s security management is no easy role.
We can carry out security surveys and audits for new buildings or drawings of buildings prior to construction, to recommend security equipment; access control, alarm systems and CCTV surveillance.
Our objective is to produce a security plan and solution that will neutralise the threat at the most cost-effective price and in the most cost-effective way. We are conscious of clients’ budgets and our objective is to provide the highest level of security at the lowest budget cost.

Security project management
We recognise that as technology develops at an increasing pace organisations are struggling to secure and control the proliferation of information and data that is required to conduct business on a daily basis.
Our Project Manager will oversee all stages of the installation. This includes verifying product and installation quality, managing engineers and ensuring all parameters of the project are carried out efficiently and in line with the project timeline and budget.
Our Project Managers will have many years of hands-on experience in the security industry and typically have engineering backgrounds. Their deep knowledge and understanding of the technology we use ensures Smith Cross deliver end products of the highest quality.
