After initially being invited to a design meeting with the contractor, consultant and client, TIS were awarded the contract to install a variety of systems as part of the refurbishment and renovation of Derby College’s historic Roundhouse building and campus – At the heart of the campus is The Roundhouse building. The Roundhouse at Derby is the world’s first and oldest surviving railway roundhouse – built in 1839 by Robert Stephenson to service steam railway engines.
TIS were responsible for the design, installation and commission of the following systems; all of which had to work seamlessly with Derby College’s existing student database and IT infrastructure:
– Intruder Alarm
– Access Control
– Door Entry
– Disabled Toilet Alarms
– Disabled Refuge
– TIS have continued to service and maintain the systems along with being awarded the service contract for the Fire Detection System at the Roundhouse.
TIS worked successfully in partnership with Derby College and their chosen Electrical Contractor throughout the project and as a result were offered the contracts to install systems at some of Derby College’s other sites:
– CCTV systems at Broomfield Hall campus, an extensive working estate providing a 200-acre classroom supporting the land-based, leisure and public services sectors at the college.
– Access Control systems at the Joseph Wright building.
– CCTV and Access Control systems at the Johnson Building on Pride Park.
– TIS are regularly asked by Derby College to provide quotations for various systems, which is testament to their good work and successful relationship with the college.
