Using tech­nol­o­gy to help auto­mate plan­ning com­pli­ance for large con­struc­tion projects

Per­sim­mon Homes tasked VPS with sim­pli­fy­ing sup­pli­er traf­fic com­pli­ance by installing a self pow­ered, com­plete­ly wire­less ANPR sys­tem to mon­i­tor HGV traf­fic routes to site.

City Cen­tre Regen­er­a­tion Project deploys CCTV Secu­ri­ty for com­mu­ni­ty updates

Tem­po­rary CCTV mon­i­tor­ing through a VPS Smart Tow­er sys­tem not only pro­tects a high pro­file con­struc­tion site, but inte­grates time-lapse cam­eras to show site development.

Tech­no­log­i­cal solu­tions can cut secu­ri­ty costs by more than half and improve pro­tec­tion at the same time 

The own­ers and the insur­ers of three for­mer stu­dents halls of res­i­dences in Man­ches­ter were wor­ried the tem­porar­i­ly vacant sites would be a tar­get for met­al thieves, van­dals and squatters.

Some­times a full range of secu­ri­ty options are required for best-fit pro­tec­tion of assets

A pan-Euro­pean client saved tens of thou­sands of Euros when two of its indus­tri­al sites in Paris sub­urbs were pro­tect­ed by VPS and pre­vent­ed sev­er­al attempts by trav­ellers to set up unau­tho­rised camps

Secur­ing a for­mer Church saved tens of thou­sands of pounds and enabled a quick­er resale

After sus­tain­ing sev­er­al attacks, the bap­tist organ­i­sa­tion that still owned a for­mer church in Not­ting­hamshire, instruct­ed VPS Secu­ri­ty Ser­vices to con­duct a secu­ri­ty risk
assess­ment and make rec­om­men­da­tions for pro­tect­ing the site. VPS Security’s range of ser­vices and exper­tise gives clients access to the best fit-for-pur­pose’ solu­tions to pro­tect and secure their prop­er­ties, and make sig­nif­i­cant sav­ings for repair­ing sub­se­quent dam­age from tres­passers or weath­er. In this instance, the own­ers saved on dam­age repair costs and were able to sell the prop­er­ty sooner.

Deter­ring crim­i­nal dam­age and squat­ters with live in Guardians

The for­mer Met­ro­pol­i­tan Police Sta­tion, sit­u­at­ed on Bal­lards Lane in Finch­ley, sits on a site of 0.47 acres. With devel­op­ment plans sub­mit­ted to cre­ate a 53-home res­i­den­tial scheme and pro­vide much need­ed homes in the area, the prop­er­ty sat emp­ty while await­ing plan­ning permission.
