Siemens Building Technologies, Security Systems, has been awarded a contract to maintain all the electronic security equipment across the Canary Wharf estate.The deal follows a competitive tender and will see Siemens take responsibility for the security equipment of all Canary Wharf-managed buildings and infrastructure within the 97 acre site.

Siemens is to put in a team of on-the-ground engineers who will manage a multi-faceted security system that includes CCTV, vehicle scanning, road blockers, barriers, vehicle plate recognition (ANPR), explosive particle detection and a range of other associated devices.

There are ambitious plans for continued development of the area.

Siemens Building Technologies, Security Systems managing director Peter Hawksworth says: “This is a prestigious contract to have won against intense competition. Canary Wharf continues to develop and expand and we will provide both immediate on-the-ground technical support as well as a continuous upgrade path that will bring in the latest technological developments. All our work will ensure that the area continues to have at its disposal some of the most sophisticated hi tech security capabilities in the UK.”

Canary Wharf Management security technical manager Mike Walker says: “For such a high profile business base as Canary Wharf we need the very best security systems in place. We spent considerable time talking to suppliers and were won over by Siemens’ professionalism and commitment to what is an extremely demanding list of requirements.”
