Local Authority & Social Housing
Ad Hoc has worked with over 70 local authorities providing Property Guardian and other security services. At a time when councils needed smart new ideas and cost saving measures, Ad Hoc arrived with culture changing solutions.
A live-in presence provided by carefully vetted working individuals has led to huge cost savings against more traditional security. It’s proven to be a win-win solution for all parties, including guardians who can source affordable accommodation in buildings that would otherwise sit vacant. It's also very socially responsible.
Council cutbacks usually impact on housing associations and they have also sought innovative solutions. Ad Hoc is proud to have worked with over 50 social housing groups across the UK.
Not all sites suit the Property Guardian scheme. This is where our digital security solutions come to the fore. Imposing mobile security towers, fixed CCTV systems and intruder alarms are providing security in buildings such as former schools, care homes, libraries and day centres.
