Amthal is working with Hawksmoor through an ambitious growth plan throughout the UK, providing fire and security services for all new and inherited buildings.
Hawksmoor, a British steakhouse and cocktail bar, which has been described as ‘flawless’ by The Times restaurant critic Giles Coren, and one of the best restaurant groups in the country by Tom Parker Bowles, is on the cusp of opening its tenth restaurant in quick succession.
Growing with the company is Amthal Fire & Security; always ready to design, deliver and install security solutions including smart CCTV systems alongside all fire alarms for the ultimate safety of staff and customers.
Says Alex McLauchlan, Finance Director at Hawksmoor Group:
“Amthal Fire & Security has excelled in the delivery of innovative security solutions, even when the buildings we have purchased have existing systems and supply companies already in place.
“The team works seamlessly around our timetables to ensure fire and security systems are planned into the design of the restaurant, installed with minimal disruption and maintained with a 24/7 priority response. Amthal is a company on which Hawskmoor has come to rely as we grow our restaurant portfolio for the safety and security of our staff and guests.”
Phil Bryant, Service Accounts Manager at Amthal Fire & Security added:
“What our long term relationship with Hawksmoor demonstrates is our preferred approach to working with clients, in true partnership. Our aim is to grow with clients and become the first port of call to organise all fire and security services.
“In Hawksmoor’s case, we are now asked to be involved with all areas of its operation from the planning of new site acquisitions and new site openings, through to a scheduled service and support package for the group’s portfolio. We even recently travelled with Hawksmoor on its first venture outside of London, with Hawksmoor Manchester. Overall, it shows how Amthal is Hawksmoor’s total security solution provider.”
Sourced Market Security On Track with Amthal Serving thousands of happy commuters and tourists across leading London stations on a weekly basis, Sourced Market has peace of mind that its newest premises is safe and secure with Amthal Fire and Security.
Sourced Market, the artisan food and drink retailer, has brought the concept of a farmer’s market to the convenience sector and has most recently added a deli/café to its portfolio, in becoming the first outlet to open at the heart of the Nova project that is regenerating a large part of London Victoria.
Growing with the company and remaining sensitive to its surroundings when it comes to safety and security for staff and customers is Amthal Fire & Security; always ready to design, deliver and install security solutions including Fire Alarm, intruder systems and CCTV.
Says Bridin Allen, Events, Marketing & Office Manager for Sourced Market:
“The whole ethos of Sourced Market is meeting a demand for high quality, locally sourced produce. We are incredibly proud of the suppliers we work with and want to ensure we offer the best protection in our food outlets for our staff and customers. “This is where Amthal Fire & Security fit the bill perfectly, in working with us across our sites, right from the initial design phase, to making sure the systems installed are not invasive to the style and feel of our creation, through installation with minimal disruption and maintenance.”
Phil Bryant, Service Accounts Manager at Amthal Fire & Security added:
“Sourced Market has been instrumental in revolutionising the way people buy food and drink at the train stations and beyond. Its opening at nova food is especially significant, being neighbours to some of the biggest and best names in the industry in such a fun, fresh setting. “Amthal is thrilled to have worked on the security on site. What this latest project demonstrates is although it may seem like security can be figured out at the last minute; it’s much more intuitive to carefully consider during initial design phases. This way the installation process can operate to blend security systems with surroundings and create a seamless, safe and secure environment for employees and customers alike”
Amthal Fire & Security has secured Watford Palace Theatre with an access control system incorporating networked control doors, software and proximity ID cards, all installed without compromising on the Grade II listed early 20th Century building.
Watford Palace Theatre, opened in 1908, is a 600 seat Edwardian Palace Theatre that has undergone significant refurbishment to offer modern accessible facilities including its own rehearsal room, wardrobe and scenic workshop, together with the new Green Bar Room.
As the theatre continues to develop the quality of experience for all who visit, the site management team is also conscious of protecting the investment and assets of the building premises for the benefit of all who visit and work on site.
Following an initial site survey to understand the unique requirements of the theatre, Amthal Fire & Security installed an access control system consisting of 30 IP networked control doors, software and proximity ID cards to offer ultimate door entry and controlled access management.
Richard Collette, Account Manager at Amthal Fire & Security added:
“Watford Palace Theatre was clear in a desire to partner with a company and develop a long professional relationship to maintain the high level of protection required at a theatre premises, with ongoing streams of staff and visitors at all times of day and night.
“Amthal Fire & Security shares this vision, which is why we go the extra mile to ensuring fire and security solutions exactly fit the requirements of buildings in terms of functionality, flexibility, scalability and management. Watford Palace Theatre is a great example of how the very latest access control solutions can be installed seamlessly in such a beautiful Edwardian building, with no effect to the architectural design.“
Says Dan Baxter, Communications Director for Watford Palace Theatre:
“We have an obligation to provide security and accessibility for all theatre goers, in addition to key members of staff. But any security installed had to be carefully considered with regards its impact on the aesthetics and architectural style of the Edwardian Palace Theatre.
“Amthal Fire & Security understood this and following a thorough site survey, designed the access control system around our needs. The installation process was quick and the new system is easy to manage and ensures complete access, safety and security. We are also safe in the knowledge it’s future proofed so that as we continue to develop the site, the level of protection can continue to grow with the facilities available.”
