Access Control

Access Control

The Automatic Controls and Building Management System is a micro-processor based system. Intelligent (computerised) outstations and plant power centres are distributed throughout the building generally in plant rooms and service risers. The operator’s terminal is located within the Facilities Management rooms and can also be monitored at the back office located on the ground floor behind the main reception desk. Interfaces with the Life Safety System are provided.

Security and Access Control

First fix will be provided for an access control system. This will consist of conduits and boxes for a card reader/keypad, pushbutton and maglock in office floor lobbies, as well as at main entrances into the building on ground floor. Fixed cameras will be used in the external areas. A Network Video Recording (NVR) system will be implemented that will be able to store video feeds from each camera for a maximum of 14 days. A total of 12 cameras will be provided.

Areas that can be monitored:

  • Entry and exit points into the building.
  • Office spaces
  • Common areas.
  • Parking areas – particularly entry and exit points.
