The Challenge

Tecserv UK has provided fire and security maintenance support and system upgrades to Portland College for many years and we currently provide maintenance services on all fire, intruder and CCTV surveillance systems.

Portand College wanted ensure the ongoing safety of the learners some of whom live onsite and some who visit for daytime classes. As vulnerable people it is essential that all areas can be closely monitored at all times to ensure their safety as they travel around campus.

The College had identified an area of the site that was not fully protected by CCTV surveillance and therefore wanted to install a new system within this area as well as upgrade and replace some existing cameras.

 

 

The Solution

A completely new Hikvision CCTV surveillance system was installed, and a number of existing cameras were upgraded or replaced with the latest technology which also included additional Hikvision Turbo cameras.

All new and existing camera were then integrated and networked so they could be monitored from a remote security office to provide the ability to monitor the surveillance cameras on a 24-hour basis.

 

 

The Outcome

The use of CCTV is an important aspect of the College’s safeguarding measures. It allows college staff to identify when learners are in need of assistance. It also helps to ensure the safety and security of the campus and provides retrievable data should evidence need to be accessed at a later date. The remote access enables 24-hour surveillance and reduces the need for a physical presence on site.

 

N Rawlings, Facilities Officer, Portland College

“The service delivered and attitude of the Tecserv team has been excellent. There was a slight set back during the works caused by a delay in the availability of the Genie lift, but the engineer took this all in his stride and pushed ahead to ensure the job was finished as promised. The installation and maintenance teams are a real credit to Tecserv.”
