Gallagher Security has announced its key role in safely securing the world's largest commercial office building, the recently inaugurated Surat Diamond Bourse (SDB), in India.

The SDB, a prodigious 15-story complex sprawling across 35 acres and offering over 7.1 million square feet of floor space, has been dubbed a 'one-stop' destination for more than 65,000 diamond professionals worldwide. This record-breaking edifice comprises nine towers and encompasses facilities such as an independent customs office, international banking amenities, and diamond testing laboratories.

Gautham N.V., the Head of Sales and Marketing India at Gallagher outlined that the primary goal is to deliver a cohesive and integrated security solution that prioritises the well-being and convenience of both staff and visitors. This choice reflects a commitment to a comprehensive and seamless security experience that addresses the complex's key aspects of safety, security, and convenience.

Gautham N.V. said, “Gallagher Security’s award-winning site management platform Command Centre was chosen to secure the complex and provide a seamless, integrated security experience that prioritises security, safety, and convenience for staff and visitors."

Gallagher takes pride in securing the Surat Diamond Bourse, the world's largest office building. The project involved implementing over 700 doors, 650 readers, and various system integrations tailored to the unique requirements of this expansive venture. Gallagher extends congratulations to all those involved in successfully realising this remarkable project.

Gautham continued, "The Surat Diamond Bourse features more than 700 doors, 650 readers, and multiple system integrations specific to this unique project. Gallagher is proud to be securing the world’s largest office building, and we congratulate everyone involved in bringing this project to life.”

Gautham highlights how the Gallagher Command Centre emerged as the preferred solution for the Surat Diamond Bourse (SDB) project. It offers advanced security with encryption and cyber protection, a simplified approach to site management, and smooth integration capabilities with third-party systems. This includes partnering with IDEMIA for biometric readers, the Verint C41 command application, and seamless integration with single sign-on and IT management solutions. Gautham highlighted these features as essential contributors to the success of the SDB project.

Gautham concluded, “Gallagher Command Centre was the preferred solution for the SDB project, providing encrypted high-end security and cyber protection, a streamlined approach to site management, and seamless third-party integration capabilities, including our partner IDEMIA’s biometric readers, Verint C41 command application and single sign-on and IT management solutions."
