Tecserv UK has been appointed to install intruder alarm systems at a temporary training ground facility for Premiership side Brentford Football Club.
Tecserv, which is based in Underwood on the Notts & Derbyshire border, was contracted by Portakabin, who are working in partnership with Ardent Sports to create a bespoke building for the BFC following planning approval in June 2022.
The two-storey building has contributed 3,200m2 to the Jersey Road training complex and includes dedicated office space, changing rooms and medical treatment rooms. Tecserv has installed two intruder alarm systems to cover the reception building and main modular office block. [In total, the systems have 11 control panels and covers over 90 intruder zones.]
The new training facility, whilst temporary, represents a significant improvement on current facilities and is a stepping-stone towards the Club’s longer-term vision for a state-of-the-art performance centre. Made up of over 80 modules which were precision engineered offsite at the Portakabin manufacturing facility in York, the building has all the necessary facilities the Premier League side will require for both its First and B teams.
Commenting, Colin Milligan Tecserv UK said, “We have a long standing relationship with Portakabin and were delighted to assist on this project to ensure the new buildings benefit from the latest security technology to ensure access to the facility is controlled to authorised personnel and the valuable equipment and personal belongings inside are protected ”
A spokesperson from Portakabin added, “Tecserv UK is a trusted partner, helping us to deliver safe and secure temporary accommodation for a wide range of applications. We’re delighted to be once again working with a topflight Premiership football club. Having the capability to deliver facilities like this for the highest calibre of athlete is a fantastic achievement for our team. The building will be in place for the next five years, enabling the Club to continue to develop its plans for a new permanent performance centre and we’re honoured to be part of that process.”
Installed over 14 days, the building is now fully operational and as well as level access, fully glazed doors and bespoke furniture will also contain a hydrotherapy suite, a cryotherapy unit and plunge pool. A viewing platform will also be installed on the roof of the ground floor overlooking the pitches at Jersey Road.
