Vinci Construction has appointed NW Systems Group to provide a high-resolution multi-megapixel camera system to monitor the £450m development of a new Science and Innovation Campus at Swansea University.
The site is a 65,000 square metre construction project located at the shorefront of Swansea Bay. To provide full coverage of such a large site, high-quality, wide-angle Mobotix megapixel cameras were chosen to be located on CCTV poles at various points around the perimeter of the site, whilst a wireless network infrastructure is being provided to make the installation feasible and reliable for the duration of the project.
For more details on the project see this report on the Vinci website.
Today, we have launched a new RemoteManager website. Take a look at www.remotemanager.com.
Our RemoteManager web camera system for construction projects has been a big success since it was launched in 2005. The RemoteManager camera system has been used on hundreds of projects over the years, including many landmark developments such Westfield London Shopping Centre, Royal Festival Hall (Southbank Centre), the Trafford Centre and Spinningfield projects in Manchester, and the Liverpool One and Cardiff St David’s city centre regeneration projects.
RemoteManager also continues to be used on many new school builds and housing developments with Balfour Beatty, Lend Lease, Carillion and Barratt Homes deploying the service on new projects continuously.
Using the latest camera and imaging technologies available, RemoteManager remains at the forefront of automated time-lapse photography and image archival. This, combined with full mobile compatibility and RemoteManager’s live video streaming capability, makes the service stand out in quality and usability, continuing to provide the construction industry with best-in-class hosted video product around. See for yourself on the new RemoteManager website: www.remotemanager.com.
Contractor Land Lease has commissioned NW Systems to install a camera system powered solely by wind and solar energy.
The system will be placed to monitor the construction of the new Mearns Academy Community Campus, a £23m secondary school development in Laurencekirk, Aberdeenshire. The system will provide networked connectivity via 3G and is due to be operational early March 2013.
NW Systems Group’s RemoteManager end-to-end video monitoring solution has been selected by London based developer CIT which begins work this month on one of London’s largest redevelopments at King’s Reach Tower, South Bank.
RemoteManager’s high resolution video monitoring service is being been used to cover the redevelopment of the site which will take three years. 4 floors will be added to the existing tower, increasing its height by 16 metres to 127 metres.

HW Property’s huge development of a disused power station on the north bank of the River Thames is being viewed by HW executives in Hong Kong. NW installed a Sony network camera system with wireless capability to overlook the large-scale 1.5 acre project that will convert the old power station into modern, high-end housing, office and retail outlets.
The hi-res system will provide video images in real-time as well as full camera control allowing HK-based managers to follow build progress in detail by zooming in onto various key aspects across the site.
NW Systems is a Certified Sony Partner.
Civil Engineering company BAM Nuttall has ordered NW Systems to integrate an IP-based CCTV and access control system for its branch in Winsford, Cheshire. Using a combination of Axis, Sony and Mobotix cameras and Paxton door controllers on a Milestone-based platform, the system will be easily manageable for BAM’s managers.
High quality, low light network cameras will be sighted on optimum vantage points across the site to provide full, high definition video surveillance of all comings and goings and work activity on site. Using Milestone Mobile, site managers will also have the possibility of accessing the system remotely, via iPad and Android tablets.
NW Systems provided the system design and has won the instruction for its implementation.
Having worked with NW at their British Salt site in Cheshire, TATA has commissioned NW Systems for the implementation of a networked Axis-Milestone CCTV system at their new Northwich head office.
High Definition cameras with Lightfinder technology for optimum video quality day and night will be linked to various monitoring stations on the network, ensuring immediate alerting of security guards.
NW advised on and designed the system and is commissioned to perform its implementation.
NW Systems is an Axis Gold Solutions and Milestone Platinum partner.
Sterling Thermal, an expert firm in combustion and heat transfer technology, has instructed NW to expand its IP network and add more Arecont 20 megapixel surround video cameras in its Aylesbury production plant.
A series of 8 megapixel Arecont cameras were initially installed mid 2011. With the expansion of its works, Sterling requires video coverage of its enlarged floor space and opted for high resolution 20 megapixel cameras. Its large open factory is ideal for use of such cameras, keeping camera count and installation cost down whilst benefitting from full area coverage in minute detail.
The smart set up of its video system means that the cameras are providing high security 24/7 whilst Sterling’s customers are enabled to view the production of their orders in real-time.
NW is a certified Arecont partner and advised Sterling Thermal on the project and its implementation.
Established in February 2012 with investment from Sainsbury’s and other institutional investors, Tamar Energy is planning to build 44 renewable energy plants using waste from agricultural sources, the food processing industry and waste from households. The first such plant is being built at Holbeach Hurn, Lincolnshire in partnership with QV Foods, with the plant to be operational in the second half of 2013.
To promote its high tech, green credentials, Tamar Energy has commissioned NW Systems to install a RemoteManager camera system to overlook the build with a live stream, whilst the system is also taking high-res snapshots every hour to create promotional images and a time lapse movie for further marketing of the technology.
RemoteManager professional web cams offer HD quality images and video of build and construction projects whilst live streams can be made available via Broadband, 3G and in a stand-alone fashion using wind and solar energy.
Barratt Homes, one of the UKs premiere residential house builders, has worked with NW to implement a 3G-based video-over-ip system for traffic monitoring at a residential development close to Emirates Stadium in North London.
The landowners, London & Quadrant Group, teamed up with Barratt Homes on the £26 million purchase of the landmark private development site on Queensland Road, close to Arsenal FC’s Emirates Stadium. The £128 million project will feature 375 private homes across three residential towers.
During this three year regeneration project, Barratt require a camera system for monitoring a shared access road on the site. NW installed a Mobotix camera system using 3G connectivity, allowing Barratt to monitor and record traffic flows with minimal network infrastructure and hardware needed on site.
The video system helps Barratt to manage traffic on the access road whilst work is going on, to keep vehicles moving and avoid trucks obstructing the road. It is a good example of how video can be used effectively in management tasks.
Should Barratt need any further information regarding an incident or queue caused, they can easily retrieve footage and take it up with the party responsible for causing the blockage.
