Secured Environments awarded to Paternoster Square

Paternoster Square has been presented with the prestigious Secured Environments award on 16th April 2024 by Commander Khan, City of London Police.

The estate is an iconic urban development in the heart of the City of London, surrounded by landmarks such as St Paul’s Cathedral and the London Stock Exchange. It houses a mix of office space, retail outlets and cafes with busy public throughfares through the square and surrounding areas. Recognising the challenges posed for security, as well as the benefits of adopting a framework for good security management, Paternoster Square (a collaboration between Savills and CIS Security) set out to gain the Secured Environments award to ensure an effective security operation is in place.

To achieve the Secured Environments award, the organisation underwent a thorough audit of their security processes and procedures, as well as consultation with staff, to verify that they were following six key principles to maximise the security of all visitors and users of the area. The principles, in short, cover: commitment; understand; respond; manage; implement; evaluate.

Teena Gill, Operations Director, Paternoster Square said:
“Paternoster Square are delighted to have been awarded the Secured Environments accreditation. The process of obtaining this award has been managed extremely professionally. The award showcases that we take the safety of our team members, occupiers, and visitors seriously.”
