Steve Scholefield of Mana Consultants carried out a full security review early in 2012 to look at Stage One’s existing security systems and make recommendations for improvements. Our company operates from a business park based in a rural area of North Yorkshire and we are faced with a number of security issues as there are several buildings and storage areas which require protection from unwanted intruders.
We found Steve to be very knowledgable about all aspects of security including CCTV, intruder, access control and perimeter fencing and he provided unbiased advise to suit the needs of our business and within our allocated budget. Steve also made recommendations for a night guarding service which we deployed for several months during a high profile & sensitive project which Stage One were involved with.
We would certainly use Steve’s services in the future when making any changes or additions to our security systems.
I am the Site Services Manager for Croda International Plc which is a natural chemical company based at the head office site at Cowick Hall in the Goole area.
I had to review the security and fire systems on site and needed help to source the right companies which had to be accredited and provide value for money.
I had met Steve Scholefield before he set up Mana Consultants working for Shorrock [Chubb] and Securi-plex. I invited him to site to review the systems and gave Steve the go ahead to review and receive quotes.
This was done in a professional manner and proved to be financially the right way to go for this type of specialised project.
I contacted Mana Consultants to look at a number of domestic properties which were in need of some upgrade to their security arrangements. Steve Scholefield helped me with this project and has subsequently arranged an alarm and security gates at my business premises.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve to other businesses who may be considering changes or upgrades to their security.
We were given the name of Mana Consultants by our local Crime Prevention Officer when we were looking into having CCTV installed at the school following a number of burglaries. We had already contacted a number of local companies ourselves but the quotes were so wildly different we didn’t know what we were looking at.
Steve Schofield met us at school and talked us through what we needed. We then asked him to go ahead and arrange for quotes and the installation of the CCTV system. We had a number of technical issues following the installation but Steve helped us solve these.
We were very pleased with how this was all handled and we have now asked him to look into security barriers for the school.
Mr Scholefield was appointed as an independent specialist in 2015 to carry out a Specialist Security Report regarding the Upgrade of Security Systems & Infrastructure within Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. His knowledge and professionalism and due diligence has proved invaluable and this provided us with a clear upgrade short-term and long-term plane. I would impartially recommend his services.
Hull Museums and Art Gallery had the pleasure of working with Mana Security Consultants but especially Steve & Julie Scholefield. Whilst working to a tight deadline, we required several security reports completing, to meet a set criteria and to come in both on time and to budget.
Steve clearly had the understanding of the standards we needed to attain, having a proven track record and depth of knowledge of all areas of security we required. He listened to and understood our requirements, style and format. All meetings were at our convenience and held in a straight forward and good humoured manner. Steve produced everything we asked for plus additional supporting material and advice.
Reviewing drafts was done quickly as all the information was produced as agreed and required in a clear and concise manner and ahead of schedule.
Working with Mana Security Consultants was a pleasurable experience with absolutely no issues at all. They are were helpful and supportive throughout the whole project with a friendly and ‘nothing is too much problem’ attitude. It was a pleasure to work with them.
