In December 2010, SGW Emirates were appointed by ADIB to provide security consultancy for the new Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (ADIB) Headquarters building, in Abu Dhabi. SGW’s initial appointed services were for the shell and core (landlord’s demise), but was further extended for the bank HQ fit out and included: Security Risk and Threat Analysis; Security Strategy development; Electronic and Physical Security Design; Tender Support; Contract Administration; and Witness Testing.
The detailed design of security technology systems will integrate state-of-the-art CCTV, access control, intruder detection and vehicle management controls, whilst the tenant and landlord control rooms will offer a dual redundancy feature, maintaining continuity of service in the event of evacuation or other disruption.
SGW Emirates are also assisting ADIB to realise its aspirations to centrally monitor and verify with live video, the alarm systems from its entire retail banking branches. As well as live video and alarms, the new central control room at its iconic Headquarters will be able to stream recorded video from its network of local recording facilities, and securely communicate with each branch and the local emergency authorities.
