Office Building Refurbishment: St. Patricks House, Cardiff

Our Client

St Patrick’s House in Cardiff recently saw a multi-million-pound refurbishment, which included a six-figure contract to replace and upgrade the fire and security systems around the building, including all cabling.

Notes & Feedback

Gareth Williams, Sales Director, Oprema Ltd, said: “When presented with a project, we always have the end user’s requirements and needs in mind. As a multi-brand distributor, we endeavour to provide the best solution for the project within the budget and scope of the plan. This is another example of the team working closely with our integrator to provide an excellent solution, resulting in a happy end user.”

Overview

Over a period of six months, Select Security installed an access control system, intruder alarms, IP CCTV and a digital fire alarm system.
That included an integration between Paxton’s Net2 access control system and Dahua IP CCTV, which means if someone forces a door or tries to enter a restricted area, a CCTV image is flagged and raises an alert to the security guard on duty.
Readers were installed on the lift, allowing users to access only certain floors. The fire system has an electronics touch screen terminal as the user interface. This fits in with the fresh, modern design of the building allowing maps and floor plans for an intuitive customer interface. Paxton’s Net2 software is adjusted over the network.
 
Leon Window, Sales Director at Select Security Specialists said:“When working with Oprema on this project we always found them incredibly helpful and quick to respond when we had any questions. Everything was supplied through Oprema, and we designed the system with their support. We executed the project as a team, working together to ensure the system went in on time and within budget. The client even commented that we were one of the first security companies to get every single part of the system working on time, ready for the building to re-open, so they were very pleased!”
