CEM Systems win contract to protect the New South Glasgow Hospitals

31 Oct 2013

Hospital secured with CEM AC2000 access control and integrated security management system

CEM Systems, part of Tyco Security Products can today announce they have won the contract to secure the largest single NHS hospital build in Scotland; the NewSouth Glasgow Hospitals, part of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. The publicly funded development will give Glasgow one of the most advanced adult acute services hospitals in the UK and will be the biggest critical care complex in Scotland.

CEM Approved Reseller Boston Networks is installing a multi million pound Intelligent Building solution for the new super hospital which features the CEM AC2000 Security Management System (SMS), securing over 400 doors throughout the facility. Construction work commenced on site early 2010 and is due for completion in 2015. The main contractor on the project is Brookfield Multiplex Construction Europe Ltd.

The powerful CEM AC2000 system will secure the brand New Adult and Children’s hospital. The new 14 floor adult hospital will house 1109 beds, state of the art emergency, acute receiving, critical care, 30 modern operating theatres, diagnostic services and a full range of in-patient and day case paediatric services.

“At the New South Glasgow Hospitals, AC2000 will provide a highly flexible and integrated security solution by linking to both Pelco Endura CCTV and Honeywell Galaxy Intruder Detection Systems” said Philip Verner, Regional Sales Director, EMEA, CEM Systems. “The CEM AC2000 system has many high level integrations in its portfolio, which enables it to act as a powerful Security Management System for South Glasgow hospital.

Commenting on the partnership, Paul Goodbrand, Director of Intelligent Buildings, Boston Networks states, ‘‘Due to the sheer scale and complexity of the New South Glasgow Hospitals project, Boston Networks had to consider numerous factors when choosing our security partners, such as future proof technology, integration capabilities and the ability to provide a solution that would allow us to meet all elements of the installation and commissioning program”.

In addition to high integration capabilities, the CEM AC2000 system offers a comprehensive set of software applications that enhance site operations. The New South Glasgow Hospitals will utilise both AC2000 VIPPS (Visual Imaging & Pass Production System), which allows users to design professional, quality ID passes which can include text, logos, graphics, photos, barcodes and signatures, and AC2000 AED (Alarm Event Display). AC2000 AED provides a dynamic and real-time graphical view of all alarms and events that occur on the AC2000 system.

As a new building with an Ethernet infrastructure the hospital was also able to utilise CEM’s Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology. This means that only one Ethernet cable is required at the door, ensuring simplified installation and time savings; a welcomed benefit in such a huge project. “The technological capabilities of CEM’s unique Power over Ethernet (PoE) solution along with AC2000 met the needs of the Hospital’s multifaceted Access Control demands and also provided Boston Networks with the integration capabilities essential to deliver a robust and future proof IP security solution, within program and budget”, continued Paul Goodbrand, Director of Intelligent Buildings, Boston Networks . “By having complete control of the installation and working closely with CEM, Boston Networks will ensure that we meet and exceed the project milestones, installation and commissioning dates.”

CEM EtherProx readers will also be used to secure the site. EtherProx is the industry’s smallest Ethernet card reader with integrated keypad, LCD display and internal database giving off-line validation and intelligent decision-making at the point of entry, even when host communications are not available. EtherProx readers can display hospital cardholders with immediate text descriptions on the swipe of their card i.e. a hospital porter trying to access the hospital pharmacy may get the message - Access Denied and a red LED will flash indicating access has not be granted.
