SGW’s First Project in Uzbekistan – Hyatt Regency

SGW recently undertook a site visit to Tashkent, Uzbekistan in late September 2016.

The purpose of the three-day visit to Uzbekistan was to assist our client, Poytakht Qurilish va Xizmat with an initial assessment of the security installations at the recently completed five-star Hyatt Regency hotel in the city.

SGW originally completed the security concept design for the hotel in March 2015, this design was further developed and installed by the main contractor.  This is the first time SGW have undertaken a project in Uzbekistan, but one of a number of new Hyatt Hotel projects where SGW have been appointed as the client’s security consultant to oversee the provision of security package installations within the EMEA region.

The Hyatt Regency Tashkent is located in a prime position in downtown Tashkent.  Situated on Navoi Street, the five-star Hotel offers 300 guest rooms including thirty-eight Regency Suites, eight Executive Suites, five Diplomatic Suites and one Presidential Suite.  Construction of the hotel was completed on the eve of the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) in June 2016.

Having already completed a desktop review of design drawings and documents completed by the specialist contractors, SGW attended site to perform a visual inspection and test of the equipment, including but not limited to:

  1. Hostile Vehicle Mitigation Systems.
  2. Vehicle Access Control System.
  3. Pedestrian Access Control System.
  4. Guestroom Locking System.
  5. Intercom System.
  6. Intruder Detection System.
  7. Video Surveillance System.
  8. Dedicated Security Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN).
  9. Guest & Baggage Screening.
  10. Exterior Lighting.
  11. Security Control Room (SCR).

Having met with our client while in Tashkent and subsequently submitting a full evaluation report of the installation, SGW have been invited to return to the Hyatt Regency to conduct a final witness test of all security systems.


Richard Roberts, Senior Security Consultant at SGW said: “We look forward to assisting our client with their risk management process and security mitigation requirements at many more high-quality hospitality developments in the future worldwide.”
