Construction

Reliable security solutions with value engineering

At a time when many construction companies are rebuilding their order books and keeping a watchful eye on market conditions, it’s never been more important to stay on schedule and within budget. NW Systems understands the challenges this brings, particularly for Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) contractors who need skilled CCTV installers and security systems specialists that they can rely on. We’re experienced at specifying cost-effective security systems that preserve functionality, and the high standard of our installation work means M&E contractors can focus on meeting their next project milestone.

The demands of managing building projects to fixed time scales and tight budgets are enormous. Using a multi-discipline security system installer allows an M&E contractor to keep the number of sub-contractors on a project to a more manageable size. NW Systems engineers and technical staff are experienced not only in the installation and commissioning of video surveillance, access control and intruder alarm systems, but also the integration of these systems. All our work is completed to the highest standards – conforming to the Security Systems Alarm Inspection Board (SSAIB) Code of Practice.

Our construction project experience is not limited to the installation of security systems as part of the build. We’re also the provider of RemoteManager – a turnkey web-based camera system specifically for deployment at building sites. RemoteManager provides real-time images for remote project management, high quality image archival and time-lapse movie creation, and it’s proved to be a very popular and cost-effective service since it was launched in 2005. It’s been used by a wide variety of construction firms including Balfour Beatty, British Land, Land Securities, Carillion, Vinci Construction, Lend Lease and Westfield. The latest version of RemoteManager (powered by Morphean) offers added value, through the use of a mobile app for easy access and the option to install cost-effective site CCTV.
