St Austell Shopping centre, Cornwall, UK

St Austell Town Centre

This contract was to construct a whole new shopping centre for the town of St Austell. This Cornish town would be subject to new multi storey parking, a cinema, numerous shops, restaurants a management suite & various amenity areas.

Waldon Security was tasked with installing a fully L1 standard fire detection and alarm system throughout the town. Also a high end intruder system with access control on all of the buildings that needed secure access.

To ensure there was a good security to both the inside and the outside of the towns buildings, Waldons also installed an in depth CCTV system, with full backups of all the images and videos. And finally a disabled refuge system, to provide clear communication to those who would need assistance in any emergency situation.
