|Wivenhoe Group has
successfully participated in all of the above; particularly with
respect to School Districts and Universities and Colleges. We
have been able to blend state-of-the-art security with the necessary
practical requirements of public and private schools and higher
education that is so critical to the operation of such entities.
|Examples of projects in this Industry
include the following:
|We have designed many security systems
for kindergarten and pre-school facilities that have included
Private Kindergarten Centers, Child Care Facilities within Hospitals,
Colleges, and within Municipal Complexes as well as Early Learning
School District, Pemberton, New Jersey:
|Performed extensive Vulnerability Assessment
for some 11 schools, ranging from High School through Middle School
to Elementary level. Assessment considered existing security systems
and procedures including Emergency Response Plans, School Bus
Routes, Communications, and Procedures.
Assessment also included elementary school on Military Base and
likely consequences of large number of students from two major
Military Bases attending School District and being bussed under
such circumstances. Recommendations lead to immediate acceptance
by the State of New Jersey to provide funding for new security
systems and measures exceeding $ 2 million.
Wivenhoe Group have completed all Multi-Phase Security
Engineering Design, and are now in the Construction Administration
stage of the project.
School District, Newark, New Jersey:
|Provided security design criteria, engineering
and design, bid development and review for all Newark Public Schools
(82 schools) and for a new Central Monitoring Station. School
incidents reports were reviewed and a series of countermeasure
levels were developed and applied as design criteria. Technical
specifications, drawings, and estimated costs for each school
and a central monitoring station were developed. Systems include
card reader access control, CCTV, perimeter and interior intrusion
detection, perimeter and interior electromagnetic locking, and
communications between each school and the new proprietary central
monitoring station. All school systems are integrated, and will
be monitored and controlled from a head end console at each school,
and the central monitoring station.
School District, Englewood, New Jersey:
|The scope of services included: a review
and evaluation of existing security in each of the six district
schools, including a High School, Middle School and Elementary
Schools. Tasks included review of available school incident reports;
existing security procedures; existing security equipment; and
identification of problem types/areas; a survey of each district
school; preparation of a security plan document for each district
school that includes an identification and evaluation of the review
and survey, a risk analysis, countermeasures and assignment of
security protection levels, development of design criteria; preparation
of a cost estimate for installed equipment for each district school;
and preparation of a project plan to identify security priorities
to develop a schedule for implementation.
School District, Passaic, New Jersey:
|Assignment related to design and implementation
of extensive centrally monitored CCTV Camera Surveillance systems.
Design included both interior coverage and substantial perimeter
cameras. School District required large central Head End system
to be able to monitor from a central point as well as record on
a local basis at each school utilizing Digital Video Recorders.
The system requirements also mandated the ability to access CCTV
event recording at each school from the central monitoring point.
Involved some 63 locations.
Stockton College, Pomona, New Jersey:
|Performed extensive Risk Assessment and
Vulnerability Study for the College, which has approximately 7,000
students. Study covered the entire campus and associated lands,
marine facility, etc. Also covered Fire and Life Safety Issues.
Involved all aspects of Access Control,
Surveillance, Data Protection, Research Activities, Residential
Protection, Perimeter Control, Roadway Traffic Flow, Lighting,
Public Safety Procedures and Personnel, Vulnerability Assessment
that included substantial number of critical assets and adjacent
threats posed by Atlantic City Casino attraction to possible Terrorists.
Provided substantial series of recommendations
on new security systems, procedures, equipment, and methodology
that has been implemented by the College
Edison State College, Trenton, New Jersey:
|Provided review and evaluation of the existing
security and video systems design, installation, and operation.
The scope of work included: review of existing contractual documentation,
including system specifications and drawings, installation methods;
evaluation of the protection level provided by the installed equipment
and identification of methods to achieve security protection in
areas that may present fire/life safety issues; conduct of equipment
testing to confirm that the installed equipment meets functional
requirements, contractual specifications and operational objectives.
University, Hempstead, New York:
|Security Consultant to Consultant Team
that carried-out an extensive Risk and Vulnerability Assessment
of the Residential Campus including dormitories, parking lots,
recreational structures, student practices, and other aspects
of risk and vulnerability. The assignment also Provided extensive
recommendations that have been implemented in a phased program
over an extended period. Study conducted over an eight month period
and included assessment of all incident reports over 5 years;
large number of interviews with faculty, students, and staff;
day and night survey of all campus grounds; assessment of “off-campus”
student housing; and traffic study of all vehicles entering or
operating with the University property.
Further study involved vehicle control and general perimeter control.
of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri:
|Conducted a detailed physical survey of
the university reactor site, reactor facility, facility offices,
and containment building. Analyzed reactor facility operations,
NRC required containment building security, existing reactor facility
security system, and the campus-wide security system. Prepared
an extensive report that details our security assessment findings;
provides a security requirements analysis, including threats,
vulnerabilities, and risks; provides specific recommendations
for an adequate level of security countermeasures that addresses
general industrial security requirements, interface with NRC security
requirements, and responses to potential terroristic activity;
provides security conceptual design and a budgetary cost estimate
of the total security upgrade program implementation.
University, White Plains, New York:
|Initial assignment related to a Vulnerability
Assessment specifically aimed at Access Control both to the residential
and faculty campuses. Recommendations involved degree of electronic
access control with a central Security Management system and control
of all main exterior doors for the academic and administration
areas as well as residential dormitories.
University, Princeton, New Jersey:
|Wivenhoe Group designed a complete
Digital Identification Card system for the University that included
