Our Ethos

Toren Consulting was founded on the belief that protecting our people and our belongings is one of the fundamental reasons that humans build. 

As security designers we therefore aim to be respected professionals and valued members of property design teams. We achieve this through being professionally qualified, highly capable at consulting with clients and external stakeholders and excelling at collaborating with architects and engineers.

We insist that security supports the operation, look and feel of a building whether it is a commercial office tower, a luxury hotel or a private residence.

We believe in third party accreditation. Toren is a SABRE Licensed Company, Registration Number SLC-005-001. Details of our SABRE Registered Professionals can be viewed on BRE's Red Book Live at .
