Galliford Try has unveiled Asset Intelligence as the new name for its rebranded Security and Active Fire business following the acquisition of nmcn’s water and asset security businesses in October.
The move reflects the shift to digital transformation in security and fire disciplines, with the business pursuing a technology driven approach that utilises Web3 and artificial intelligence to optimise solutions and drive innovation in the future.
It comes in quick succession after Galliford Try launched its Sustainable Growth Strategy which targets controlled growth in existing and adjacent markets, and saw the acquisition of nmcn water last year.
The acquisition added 50 specialist security designers, installers, commissioning specialists and management, strengthening Galliford Try’s existing security construction team. The combined security and active fire disciplines now work as a single streamlined business, under the leadership of Managing Director Uzair Osman with a newly-appointed Senior Leadership Team. The restructure and senior appointments provide Galliford Try with the expertise and experience to maximise the role it plays in the security industry, building on Galliford Try’s longstanding experience of security contracting, and historic delivery of security projects within the water industry with public and regulated sector clients.
Galliford Try Asset Intelligence makes its debut at The Security Event at The NEC in Birmingham today (5 April 2022) and will be introduced across the market in the coming months, providing expert security and active fire solutions direct to Critical National Infrastructure, National Infrastructure and high-value assets with the build environment and UK infrastructure.
Uzair Osman, Managing Director of Asset Intelligence, commented: “We have brought together a strong and focused leadership team and combined Physical, Electronic and Active Fire Security interests into a single market-facing business, positioned to work collaboratively with our clients to drive value and quality to new levels.
“The security of UK assets is under increasing scrutiny and Galliford Try is positioned to support asset owners and operators as a single point of support for designing, developing installing and integrating high quality security solutions across client estates.
“We look forward to playing a major role within the future of the UK security Industry, building on a heritage of construction and engineering in secure environments.”
Galliford Try Asset Intelligence will work alongside existing businesses at Galliford Ty including Oak Fire Protection, which specialises in all aspects of passive fire protection.
