Intruder alarm upgrade, CCTV & access control systems installation.

A new special school specifically designed to meet the needs of young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) is soon to open its doors.

The Warwickshire Academy offers 80 full-time places for learners aged 9 – 19 years who have social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs.

The new school, which is situated in Ash Green benefits from a wide range of facilities including forest school areas, outdoor spaces and sports pitches including a multi-use games area, and specialist teaching suites.

In addition to the outdoor provision, the multi-million-pound investment made by Warwickshire County Council also includes food technology and science rooms and a new sports pavilion and gym.

Electrical contractors, Cheshire Contracting & Controls Ltd. awarded GBIS the contract to upgrade the existing intruder alarm, along with installing a new CCTV and access control system.

GBIS got to work initially carrying out remedial works to the existing Risco intruder alarm system, to ensure a fully working and compliant system. The next phase of works included but was not limited to a new CCTV system throughout the school, and more than eighty doors and gates installed on Paxton Net2 access control. This included video door entry to vehicles access/egress and main school entrance all controlled by the school.

The combination of the systems installed offers both simplicity and greater peace of mind for the safety of both pupils and staff.

All monitoring and maintenance contracts were included.

Salford Cathedral Data Installation

The Diocese of Salford embarked on a new Era when they designed the administration block within the boundaries of Salford Cathedral at the heart of the City. The structured cabling was designed for the future and a Krone Cat6 Truenet system was decided upon in order to future proof the business needs of the Salford Catholic Diocese. The Electrical Contractor appointed GB Integrated Systems Ltd to pull together the design with the consultants and install, test and commission over 700 Cat6 data outlets across the whole site. The project threw up many challenges but not least the electrical contractor going bust part way through leaving GBIS in a predicament, but with determination and absolute professionalism team GBIS completed the job to the client’s satisfaction.

Electrical, Security and AV for the Newly refurbished Presbytery

With the appointment of a new Parish Priest, one of the first jobs that GBIS were appointed to undertake was the installation of all the electrical services, accessories and intruder alarm system. Upon the completion of this, the next stage was to install a video door entry system that incorporated proximity access control, and was both reliable and user friendly. The presbytery was now looking like it belonged in the 21st century, it was now a place where the parishioners could gather to socialise, hold meetings and seminars.


GBIS were also tasked to incorporate a state of the art interactive smart board and audio visual system into the multi-use meeting/prayer room along with all the data and telephone cabling. The final request within this phase of improvements was to install a church TV system with a camera that allowed parishioners to log in and be able to view Mass remotely. A function which has proved invaluable for the elderly and infirm of the Parish. All elements of GBIS’s work was completed with care, on time and within budget.
