Evolution Provides Complete Security
Framework
for Intercept Pharma Europe Ltd
T
he challenge presented to
Evolution,
provider
of
integrated fire and security
solutions, was to provide a
comprehensive security framework
to Intercept Pharma Europe Ltd, a
leading biopharmaceutical company,
for its offices in central London.
Evolution started by conducting an
extensive survey and audit of the
Intercept premises and existing systems,
from which an in-depth report was
compiled with recommendations as to
immediate and future actions.
One of the first recommendations was
to create a Security Policy document
detailing the physical security processes
and procedures required to maintain the
safety and security of staff and visitors.
The document formalised procedures in
relation to the transfer of data supports
Intercept Pharma’s compliance to GDPR
regulations. Evolution also oversaw the
servicing and integration of the existing
standalone Access Control and CCTV
systems, creating a combined solution
that is flexible, scalable, easy to operate
and with a single point of contact for
ongoing support.
Steve Lambden, Facilities Manager at
Intercept Pharma Europe Ltd, says

Evolution has delivered a complete
framework: “Evolution’s attention to
detail and level of accountability has
been outstanding, and the way in which
it is further developing the relationship
to support us has exceeded my
expectations.
“The
technical
advice,
project
management and comprehensive risk
analysis and support, as well as training,
has provided us with a structure to the
way we view and seek to improve the
security of our building and assets.”
Additional equipment has been
recommended, installed and integrated
where required: “Following Evolution’s
in-depth assessment, it was clear that
we had an obvious blind spot in the
reception area, which is often occupied
by visitors, so it was important that we
quickly addressed this issue with
additional CCTV to provide this essential
additional coverage,” Steve adds.
“Evolution also identified our server room
which houses our CCTV Head End as
potentially vulnerable and will be fitting
a more robust door locking system
integrated into the Access Control
System to increase security.”
Evolution provided Intercept with a
series of comprehensive training
sessions to make maximum use of the
Access Control and CCTV systems
installed. The client also now has access
to a series of online tutorials and tools
to refresh their knowledge where
required.
“The training that Evolution provided
was in-depth and engaging,” Steve
continues. “The online tutorials are
extremely useful in situations where we
are unsure on a particular issue.
Evolution has demonstrated excellent
project management throughout and
provided us with ongoing support; there
is always someone personable and
knowledgeable at the other end of the
phone should we need them.”
Richard Lambert, Managing Director at
Evolution, says Evolution’s holistic
approach to security was crucial in
delivering the project: “By working
closely with Steve and the Intercept
team, we were able to fully understand
their needs and specific requirements in
the absence of existing security policies
and procedures, and also manage and
deliver the project on time and on
budget.”
