WLS updated the school’s existing audio entry system to a video entry system and designed the new installation to ensure that the system is no longer overloaded at busy drop-off and pick-up times.
WLS visited site to assess the vulnerabilities in the system and devise an upgrade programme that involved replacing a number of existing CCTV cameras with advanced IP-based HD equipment. New CCTV cameras were also installed in a number of new locations to enhance coverage.
WLS carried out a site survey to consider the company’s access control requirements as part of a plan to enable a full site lock down in the event of a terrorist attack or disaster. This involved consideration of more than 1000 access control doors and a number of entry points to the building.
The WLS team visited site to understand the vulnerabilities in the CCTV system, assess where coverage needed to be improved and decide which cameras needed to be replaced. Faulty cameras were replaced and new fully-functional HD cameras were installed in strategic locations to ensure complete visual coverage of the entire site, with zoom and directional capabilities.
WLS carried out a full survey of all entrance/exit points, stairways, fire doors and emergency exits to establish where the building is vulnerable to intruders, using this insight to inform the access control and CCTV upgrade. The upgrade made use of existing access control and CCTV hardware, with some additions where required, and all server systems were upgraded to allow for future integration with other Channel 4 sites.
The new pedestrian gate is secured with maglocks and a hydraulic closer. The gates were installed in combination with a door entry system linked to a handset in the school reception. The exit push button to open the gates from inside the campus is on a timer to allow staff to check who is leaving site.
WLS was brought into the project by electrical contractor, Cilantro, to install fire detection and alarm systems in the communal areas.
The project also includes access control systems, with ANPR-controlled automated barriers linked to the CCTV. Satellite TV systems are also part of the brief for this project with a port in every en-suite bedroom, enabling residents to watch both Israeli and Turkish TV.
The Orbit, a new, 114.5 metre sculpture and viewing platform built as a lasting legacy of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, required a full
