The Client

In 2015, Southend Borough Council began to make plans to turn what had simply been a green field at the back of Southend Airport, into a flourishing business park consisting of purpose built offices and warehouses totalling over 1 million square feet.

The Brief

Due to our long-standing relationship with Savills, one of the world’s leading commercial property agents, we were honoured to be brought on board in 2018 to initially act as consultants in the design of a full security infrastructure spread across the 52 acre site consisting of:

  • Monitored analytic CCTV
  • ANPR
  • Automated Swing Gates
  • Automated Barriers
  • Networked Access Control 
  • Fibre Network

In 2020 Century Fire & Security Ltd were appointed as the contractor to carry out the formal design, supply and installation of these elements, working for Readie Construction Ltd.
