Modern and Discreet
    Security System

    St Antony’s College is internationally recognised as one of the world’s foremost places for post-graduate studies. Founded in 1950, the college buildings are a mixture of architectural styles, with some dating from the early Victorian era (when they were originally used as a convent); and other buildings completed during the 1960s and 70s.

    As part of its ongoing expansion programme, St Anthony’s commissioned award-winning Iraqi-British Architect Dame Zaha Hadid to create its new Middle East Centre. One of her last projects before she passed away in March 2016, this project has been recognised by many for its architectural merit and nominated for numerous awards. It won the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) South Award 2016.

    The Challenge

    Oxford University needed an integrated security set-up that would keep the building safe, whilst also enabling students and staff freedom to come and go with ease.

    In addition, they required a state of the art lighting, audio and video conferencing system for the centre’s lecture theatre.

    The college was looking for a security expert they could rely on:

    • To provide the best equipment available.
    • To devise and install a system sympathetic to both new and traditional elements of the building.
    • Who would understand and comply with the needs of the college – safeguarding the building and correctly following educational privacy practices.

    Chris Lewis Fire & Security designed and installed an integrated intruder alarm, CCTV, and access control system. Our sister company, Chris Lewis Smart home worked with us on the design and installation of the lecture theatre’s video conferencing, lighting and audio systems.
    The Galaxy Dimension integrated intrusion and access system delivers flexible round-the-clock protection with graphical touch-screen control and remote servicing. This easy-to-use installation gave maximum security and free movement within the college with personnel proximity cards.
    The Axis mini-dome CCTV cameras are small, discreet, and incredibly powerful. Outdoor-ready, HD and 360-degree panoramic view – these compact dome cameras produce megapixel video quality without interfering with the architectural aspects of the college.
