In September, ClearView was invited to tender for the CCTV Maintenance of each campus of the University of Essex, situated at Colchester, Southend, and Loughton within Essex. The University required a CCTV maintenance company to cover the servicing of all CCTV equipment.
Providing CCTV maintenance for the University of Essex, Colchester
Located in the historic 200-acre Wivenhoe Park and home to 15,000 students, the Colchester Campus is the largest of the three sites, making the site’s security a priority. The 210-camera CCTV system includes a mixture of Axis, Bosch and Mobotix cameras and encoders across the Colchester campus consisting of:
- analogue cameras
- IP cameras
- ANPR cameras
- MultiStream cameras
Maintaining Southend’s CCTV Systems
The Southend-on-Sea campus spans across seven miles of coastline and is home to East 15 Acting School, the School of Health and Social Care, the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies, and Essex Business School.
The CCTV system at the Southend campus uses 55 Mobotix cameras, which is operated 24/7 from a centralised location consisting of:
- IP cameras
CCTV Maintenance Loughton:
London’s largest open space borders the campus, Epping Forest, just minutes from Loughton. The Loughton campus operates both Hikvision and Axis CCTV cameras systems across multiple buildings on site, and these 26 cameras consist of:
- IP cameras
The CCTV maintenance contract was to include reactive call-outs (with different priority responses depending on the severity of the fault), preventative maintenance visits to check the CCTV equipment is in full working order, CCTV repairs and new CCTV installations, the ordering of new CCTV system equipment and a critical spares plan. The University required the contractor to be NSI accredited and an approved supplier through the ESPO framework.
This framework gives the client immediate confidence that the suppliers have already been vetted to a high standard. To be awarded the framework as an approved supplier, ClearView had to provide extensive evidence that we operate safely, have the correct insurance levels, demonstrate previous evidence and technical knowledge, and carry out projects and maintenance to the highest standards.
This, along with our industry-leading accreditations and experience, enabled ClearView to meet the demanding requirements and was awarded the CCTV maintenance contract for the University of Essex. The works are due to commence in January 2022.
