TPS's dedicated Security Consultancy Group offers a wide range of services including security systems design and security advice and design for the built environment and critical national infrastructure.

We have been providing high quality security consultancy for more than 50 years, initially as the UK Government's Property Services Agency (PSA), working on many and varied sensitive security projects and, since privatisation in 1992, a wide range of public and private sector clients.

Our in house team of 20 consultants include acknowledged leaders in their fields, delivering innovative and practical security solutions, and as part of the £5bn Carillion Group we have the advantage of long-term continuity and powerful supply chain leverage that help ensure the delivery of cost effective security projects for clients.

Our clients include Central and Local Government and specific major projects for the Ministry of Defence and Foreign and Commonwealth Office, operators of critical national infrastructure and other utilities, transportation and airport operators, corporations and operators of entrainment venues, cultural and heritage sites.

Our people work either directly with client security and facilities managers or as part of multi-disciplined teams.

Our security team is recognised by the Register of Security Engineers and Specialists - promoting excellence in security engineering.  Security engineering is the design and application of protective measures against terrorism, sabotage and crime for the built environment and infrastructure, including the health protection of the population. RSES is sponsored by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure.
