Case studies - The Hippodrome Casino

Hippodrome Casino imageThe Hippodrome Casino
The Hippodrome Casino, an iconic London landmark and Casino Of The Year, has extremely rigorous and specialist security requirements. It selected SSD to design, supply, install and commission a fully integrated security system, with Netaccess NA1 at its heart.

The project incorporated intruder alarm, access control, time & attendance and people counting systems and presented a range of specific requirements and challenges that needed to be overcome. SDD selected the NA1 access solution because it could manage the complete range of requirements and had the flexibility to incorporate bespoke changes.

The system was completed in July 2012 and now manages the day-to-day security operation, time and attendance for payroll purposes and a people counting system measuring footfall through the premises. As well as being used for marketing purposes, this aids the management team in ascertaining staffing levels at specific times of day and days of week.

"At the Hippodrome Casino, SSD designed and installed a comprehensive security system for an extremely complex grade two listed building that covers 96,000 sq. ft. over four floors. We currently entertain 35,000 customers a week and have 700 staff, so the access control and alarm systems have to operate efficiently. I am happy to recommend SSD." Facilities and Regulatory Director, Hippodrome Casino, London
