Barlows Fire & Security | NSI Audit

20.04.18

On Friday 13th April, our Fire and Security department welcomed the NSI (National Security Inspectorate), to carry out their bi-annual audit. Audits are undertaken in order to assess whether or not high quality standards are being adhered to, in order for the company to retain their Gold Standard accreditation, which acts as a representation that work complies with industry standards. Barlows Fire & Security already hold the Gold Standard, but following on from this recent audit, we are pleased to announce that they have been recommended for ISO9001:2015 approval. This is an essential step in ensuring that NSI Gold accreditation is retained and also ensures the company are working to the highest possible standards in quality management. The NSI auditor also carried our a site visit to a Grade 3 intruder alarm system installation. Following on from the visit, we have been awarded a grade A, which is the highest grading possible for this type of assessment. We believe this demonstrates to our customers that they can be assured that we are and will continue to work to the highest standards possible within the Fire & Security Industry. All NSI approved companies must comply with the relevant British, European and International standards for technical excellence. Tasks undertaken or compliance for example are the security screening of their employees, provision of staff training and supervision, as well as recognition of industry levels and the holding of insurances, to protect both customers and employees. For the majority of schemes, companies must also agree to be audited once every 6 months by fully trained NSI auditors, including random visits to end user sites. Only companies determined to be the best in their class subject themselves to this stringent process.

Safestore | Mitcham

09.03.18

We have another exciting project kicking off for major client Safestore this week. Hot on the heels of the underground car park conversion at Paddington Marble Arch we're onsite at a completely different addition to the storage giants portfolio. This time it's a steel frame new build on the site of an old warehouse in Mitcham, London. The package includes the complete electrical installation, fire alarm, CCTV & data. We're delighted to be working alongside the Safestore team of main contractors again, including Principal Contractor UC Build, architects Tew & Smith, Synergy Consultants, Construct & self storage fit out experts Active Supply & Design. The concept of 'selling place' has really taken off in recent years with Safestore dominating the market with well over 100 stores Nationwide. That trends looks set to continue as the demand for affordable business premises & commercial & domestic storage space increases. What we love about Safestore is you never know what the next project is going to be. We like a new challenge.. this week it's a snow covered construction site!

Fire and Security | High Wycombe

19.01.18

We are excited to announce the recent opening of the Fire and Security team in our High Wycombe branch. We decided that opening down South would help service our existing customers nationwide and also would help us to cover some new multi-discipline, nationwide contracts that we have won. We are also able to provide a better service to all of our clients down south as we are nearer their sites meaning we have cut down our travel time so our response time is a lot quicker. Hopefully we can expand even more in our High Wycombe office and begin to stretch our coverage of the UK even more.
