Martin Lovatt, who is also the University’s Project Man- ager for Blackdale, said, “It’s going to be even better. We’re learning all the time – and, actually, a lot of what you learn isn’t so much the processes; you learn to recognise the people who can use those processes, and pull in the right team of people at the right time.”

Modern university living spaces must be efficient and well designed to serve students and staff for years to come, the UEA has invested wisely for the future ahead. Deciding to use Gallagher as the main access control solution has enabled the university to easily integrate new buildings into their existing set- up, allowing for new doors to be added or old ones removed should the university desire. Check Your Security have been able to provide the UEA with a complete security solution in keeping with their environmental credentials and the existing campus. They have achieved this through provid- ing energy efficient locks and state of the art IP based cameras that easily connect with the UEA’s main control room that serves as a security hub for all security communications.
