WLS Complete Security System Upgrades For Channel 4 HQ
Client: Channel 4
- WLS has had a long-term relationship with Channel 4 for several years
- WLS provide both servicing and maintenance contracts for the fire and security systems
- The brief was to improve resilience and enable lock down
- The project included new access control and CCTV systems aligned to a refurbishment programme in the main reception and canteen areas of the building
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 security installation for the remodelled main reception and canteen areas of the building was also designed to prevent intruders from accessing the building and to enable lock down procedures. Here additional fully-functional CCTV cameras were installed to deliver a robust solution.
