The City of Lincoln, California selected Guidepost Solutions to develop citywide security electronic system standards. Working alongside the City’s staff throughout the project, we were able to gain an understanding of existing and future facility physical security needs and goals. Our project team performed an assessment of six buildings, reviewed future building drawings and documents, and held interviews with key staff members – ultimately delivering a needs and gap analyses for a standard security system. Our recommendations identified technologies, hardware/software, and costs; and offered an integrated, cost-effective design approach that leveraged the City’s computer network as the communication infrastructure.
Additionally, our recommendations provided physical security for building perimeters; defined security zones within buildings for public and staff-only areas; and included intrusion detection systems for after-hour protection – a video surveillance system with suggested technologies and camera locations and an access control system with the capability of an integrated card access system and typical card reader locations.
Upon successful completion, we were selected again by the City to provide design and construction administration of a citywide access control and video surveillance system.
