With the brand-new accommodation blocks under development, AUB, the site developers, and the facilities management team wanted expert advice on potential security solutions. These solutions needed to offer the best combination of protection, user-friendly access, and value for money.
Network Security drew up detailed suggestions to protect the facilities, residents, staff, and visitors – whilst making it simple for authorised persons to enter and leave the buildings with minimum disruption.
The accommodation blocks were designed to enhance the shared living and communal areas, so access control needed to reflect this as well as guard against unauthorised trespassers.
With a 40 minute walk to the main campus, many students cycle to reduce travel time. The solution needed to allow simple authorised access to a secure external area used to safely store bicycles and prevent their potential theft.
