National Restaurant Chain Study
Since 2006, Amthal has partnered with the award-winning Hawksmoor chain of restaurants, to ensure a comprehensive fire and security service for both newly created and existing properties across the UK.
Hawksmoor currently owns ten restaurants in the UK, spread across London, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Manchester.
Lauded as ‘flawless’ by restaurant critic Giles Coren of The Times and considered one of the country’s top restaurant groups by Tom Parker Bowles, the chain specialises in serving British steak and sustainable seafood, with great cocktail bars.
The challenge: bespoke security for every site
Over the years the company has seen remarkable growth. With ten separate sites to look after, the challenge for Amthal’s fire and security teams over the years has been to ensure complete and consistent protection for every location.
The Amthal solution
Treating each site as individual premises, the Amthal team conducted a full risk assessment at every restaurant prior to installation. Some sites required a full installation from scratch, while other acquisitions already had systems in place. The risk assessment and system installation has been followed by continued monitoring and maintenance of all sites to make sure systems are operating at their optimum capacity.
As a trusted fire and security partner we have been involved in all areas of operation, from the planning of new site acquisitions and new site openings to a scheduled service and support package for the group’s portfolio.
“Amthal has excelled in the delivery of innovative security solutions”
Says Alex McLauchlan, Finance Director at Hawksmoor Group:
“Amthal has excelled in the delivery of innovative security solutions, even when the buildings we have purchased have existing systems and supply companies already in place.
“The team works seamlessly around our timetables to ensure fire and security systems are planned into the design of the restaurant, installed with minimal disruption and maintained with a 24/7 priority response. Amthal is a company on which Hawskmoor has come to rely as we grow our restaurant portfolio for the safety and security of our staff and guests.”
The final result
Starting with just one restaurant site in London back in 2006, Amthal has followed Hawksmoor’s impressive growth journey, becoming a trusted partner and acting as the first port of call for all of the restaurant chain’s fire and security requirements. We look forward to many more years of growth and successful partnership together.
