Chubb Adds High-Tech Security in New Building at Newcastle University
13 March 2018
STUDENTS, STAFF and property at Newcastle University’s new Urban Sciences Building are now protected with a sophisticated access control system, provided and installed by Chubb Fire & Security.
Chubb’s access control solution with an integrated intruder alarm is already proven in all other buildings on Newcastle University’s campus and with its ability to integrate with the University’s wider security management system, it was a perfect choice.
With the new system, the estates management team is able to print ID passes, restrict and monitor access, and be highly responsive to potential incidents. It is also able to review arrangements for events and monitor door usage. The Urban Sciences Building has a total of 60 doors, requiring separate zoning and access restrictions for undergraduates, postgraduates, staff and visitors.
Prior to the building opening, Chubb delivered training to the estates management team to get the most out of the system. “The training was extremely useful and a part of the excellent service and expert advice we have come to expect from Chubb,” added Johnston.
Newcastle University is a Russell Group university home to over 26,000 students and nearly 6,000 staff.
