SCG was engaged by the Perth Zoo to conduct a review of the existing mechanical lock system installed across the entire site, including the staff administration and animal enclosure areas, and provide recommendations to upgrade the locking systems, master key hierarchies, and key issue management.
SCG was engaged by Museum Victoria (MV) to develop a Security Management Framework; the aim being to establish a clearly defined integrated framework including policies, plans and procedures tailored to MV’s requirements. The framework provides an overarching structure through which MV can identify, manage and respond to risks associated with the physical environments within their control.
The key objectives of the Framework are to:
- Identify and define the appropriate security strategy;
- Determine the appropriate security management standards for the protection of assets;
- Enhance the organisations reputation;
- Provide a management model which identifies accountabilities and risks;
- Improve operational efficiencies;
- Formulate an effective expenditure plan for the security budget across the MV property portfolio.
The project was delivered over three phases:
- Review & Investigation
- Development of the Security Management Framework
- Implementation Plan.
A Security Working Group was developed for the project to provide structure and guidance to all SCG and MV stakeholders and to ensure defined recommendations were collectively approved for submission to the Executive Management Team and Board.
A senior member of SCG’s team led the planning and design of security services for the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple in Singapore.
Constructed mainly from timber, the temple houses the very rare and valuable relics of Buddha and is of very significant religious and cultural importance to the international Buddhist community.
When the relics were first displayed in Singapore, more than 600,000 people attended the exhibition over a four-day period. The new temple displays the relics on a daily basis, with more than 3.5 million visitors attending the temple each year. The significance of the relics, combined with expected numbers of visitors, necessitated sound security planning and design, with this forming part of a security operational management regime, which will be provided by the Monks.
The temple is a truly magnificent building, with an extremely high level of specialist interior fit out. The manner in which the security has been integrated has been an important issue throughout the design and during construction, with the challenge for security design team including the provision of good security, however with an extraordinary level of transparency.
SCG was engaged to conduct a physical security review for a proposed private art gallery housing over 1000 pieces of artwork.
SCG provided strategies regarding storage and display of artworks to minimise the need for extensive building hardening and electronic security and a preliminary security design and cost plan was prepared as the final project deliverable.
