The SEE MONSTER, an oil rig from the North Sea, was retired and transformed into one of the UK’s largest public art installations. The idea behind the exhibit was to inspire global conversations about reuse, renewables and weather across the United Kingdom. It was estimated more than half a million people visited the exhibit during its public display.

During the installation and construction phase, FSEG provided a range of security services, supported by a dedicated team consisting of access control specialists, overnight asset protection personnel, and health and safety enforcement officers.

With a staff complement comprising 12 Event Stewards, 15 SIA Security Guards, 3 SIA Supervisors and Event Control/Management personnel, our team ensured comprehensive coverage across all security aspects. Responsibilities extended beyond traditional security functions to include partial enforcement of health and safety regulations, ensuring the adherence of all individuals to site mandatory safety protocols.

Transitioning to the operational phase, the deployed security team assumed responsibility for overseeing various facets of site security which would include queue management, access control, customer services, asset protection, and emergency response coordination. The proactive approach to security management contributed significantly to the smooth operation of the SEE MONSTER event, maintaining a secure environment for participants and attendees alike.

Throughout the project, FSEG’s diligent efforts and commitment to excellence underscored the company’s reputation as a reliable security partner. Coupling management expertise and deployment of a skilled workforce, our team ensured the safety and satisfaction of both personal involved in the SEE MONSTER project and visiting members of the public.

The successful collaboration between Five Star Security and the SEE MONSTER project highlights the critical importance of professional security services in the realm of event management and public safety. Through our dedication, expertise, and strategic deployment of personnel, our security division played a fundamental role in the overall success of the event, maintaining our high standard for event success in security solutions, no matter how big or small the event.
