Case Studies

Rothbury Road, Hackney Wick, London E9

Rothbury Road, Hackney Wick, London E9

The development scheme involved the demolition of buildings on a rundown trading estate in east London to be replaced with four new buildings, arranged around a shared courtyard. This would result in a regenerated urban development which responds to existing street patterns and creates a beautiful new public space between Rothbury Road and White Post Lane.

Client Testimonial

Global Guardians provided a no fuss, no fees, end-to-end service that was exemplary. All of the guardians had links to the local area and provided full security not only to their own building, but also to the industrial park that it was part of, within a very complicated site. On top of this the grounds were well maintained and the reporting was regular and comprehensive, with the site returned to us clean, clear and on time. We would unreservedly recommend Global Guardians and look forward to working with them in the future

Guardian Testimonial

With this, I hope you had a Happy Easter and thank you for over a year of a great accommodation. I have been with a few guardianships before Global Guardians you guys are by far the most responsive, easy to contact and transparent. The online platform and My-Globe is second to none of the existing similar providers.

Being a year with Global Guardians meant I was able to save some money and gain some financial stability. I much appreciate the service and I will be an ambassador for Global Guardians.

Client Testimonial

To date we have used Global Guardians on two of our vacant sites in central London. They have not only provided an excellent service, but have done so in a friendly and professional manner. The team at Global Guardians are always prepared to help out and provide assistance when requested, but ultimately, they have saved us money, kept our properties secure and given us peace of mind.
