Priority Sites Shortwood Business Park

ASP was appointed to advise on the security designs for a brand new development near Barnsley, The Shortwood Business Park development (Phase 2). The development consists of high grade quality units (some of which are bespoke) ranging with parking facilities.

The scheme was designed on behalf of the Developer  Priority Sites to offer prospective tenants the benefit of the development being ‘Secured by Design’ accredited incorporating secure fencing and gates, Intruder alarms and ample car parking provision.

Advanced Security Partners Ltd was appointed by the developer to design an integrated security system for the scheme. The brief also included the requirement to achieve Secured By Design accreditation.

Working closely with the Principal Contractor Britcon Build, and the Client, Advanced Security Partners formulated an integrated solution that achieves the client's brief. In addition Advanced Security Partners coordinated the aim to achieve Secured By Design and constantly liaised with the local Architectural Liaison Officer and reported back to the Design Team accordingly to ensure the scheme would meet the criteria necessary to be awarded the accreditation.

The security solution included a ducting infrastructure to enable external cameras to be installed in the future. Careful consideration was given to the proposed lighting scheme to ensure best picture quality was achieved if the CCTV system was to be installed.The landscape architecture was designed such that maximum coverage was achieved in all lighting conditions, all year round. A manual swing gate controls access to the main entrance of the site.

Detailed specifications, schematic diagrams and site plans were produced and a full tender package issued to Britcon for distribution.

During construction stage Advanced Security Partners Ltd had a technical supervision role and ensured the system design was as per the output specification.

ASP reviewed and accepted the completed O&M manuals for the security system on behalf of the client.

Key features of the design:

  • Multi-unit alarm system
