Everton Football Club

We are excited to present a comprehensive case study detailing the successful security implementation for the new, iconic Everton Football Club stadium, collaborating closely with our client, Laing O’Rourke

Project Overview:

The SmartWatch Solutions team was challenged to secure the stadium site during construction. This was accomplished by providing top-range thermal CCTV cameras and deploying dedicated security guards at all times, ensuring the safety and protection of the monumental project.


The stadium’s high-profile nature could lead to challenges in securing the site. 

Passionate fans eagerly anticipated progress, but this could potentially lead to large crowds nearby, posing safety risks. Additionally, rival supporters could have viewed the construction as an opportunity for protest or disruption. 

The scale of the building site also posed difficulties. The site was large and this made it difficult to monitor from all angles and entrances. If a person entered the site, they could be unnoticed for some time or difficult to find once detected. 


Employing state-of-the-art thermal CCTV cameras, SmartWatch Solutions established a comprehensive surveillance network covering key areas of the construction site. These advanced cameras enabled real-time monitoring, detection of unauthorised access, and proactive response to any security breaches. Additionally, our team of highly trained security guards provided an additional layer of protection, patrolling the premises and ensuring round-the-clock vigilance.


Our diligent efforts contributed significantly to the success of the new Everton Football Club stadium launch. Through the effective utilisation of advanced security technologies and the dedication of our security personnel, the project proceeded smoothly without any major security incidents. 


The collaboration between Laing O’Rourke and SmartWatch Solutions Ltd exemplifies the power of teamwork and expertise in achieving remarkable results. Together, we have demonstrated a commitment to excellence and the ability to overcome challenges, culminating in the realisation of a groundbreaking sporting facility.
