Bringing Integrated Systems to Scotland’s Biggest Hotel
King Communications & Security are currently providing a range of integrated systems to the new £22 million Motel One hotel development in Glasgow. With 13 floors and 374 bedrooms, it’s set to be Scotland’s largest hotel, situated right in the heart of the city’s centre next to the Railway Station on Oswald Street.
The organisation will be working alongside main contractor Ogilvie Construction, and Mechanical and Electrical Consultants, Castle Building Services to deliver the project in autumn of this year. King Communications & Security commenced works at the site in February and currently have engineering teams progressing works on the following systems; IP CCTV and Video Management Software, Intruder Alarm, Disabled Refuge and Toilet Alarms, Access Control and Induction Loop. Additionally, the company will be providing a high-quality Notifier by Honeywell Fire System.
The hotel requires a comprehensive fire system to minimise the potential for false alarms and to detect early signs of fire quickly. Motel One has a clear strategy for the provision of safety and minimised disruption in their service provision. With over 684 detectors across the site and 10,000 meters of fire cable, this project is a welcomed addition to the organisation’s portfolio of household name clients.
