ISG Construction Ltd is an international construction services company, delivering engineering services, construction and a range of specialist solutions.
The Company was awarded a £29 million two-stage, design and build project to deliver a new, highly-sustainable commercial office development in the City of London.
Works would involve the demolition of an existing building in the heart of the capital’s banking district, and the delivery of 58,000 sq ft (NIA) of high-specification Cat A office accommodation.
Security of the site during the ongoing works was a primary concern for ISG, as intrusions and theft of assets can result in significant delays to the build process.
ISG sought a reliable, proactive and redeployable CCTV solution that was capable of providing immediate alerts of any intrusion onto this site, with visual verification of the alert, enabling a site manager to respond appropriately.
To secure Lombard Street during the regeneration works, ISG contracted WCCTV as a specialist supplier of site security services and CCTV.
Two WCCTV Site Domes were deployed at the site, creating an invisible perimeter detection system to pick up on any intrusion at first point of ingress onto the site.
The WCCTV Site Dome is designed for rapid deployment and combines a marketing leading infrared PTZ camera, wireless transmission capability, a voice address system and an integral 4TG hard drive.
If an intrusion is verified, a live audio challenge is issued via the speaker system which has been proven as a positive deterrent. In addition, ISG can liaise with other members of staff, mobile guards or the police to protect the site.
Since the deployment of WCCTV's Site Domes, there have been no reported incidents of intrusion or theft at the site.
