FRANKLAND Centre, a 30-bed high security forensic inpatient unit located on the Graylands Hospital campus, at Mount Claremont in Perth, WA seeks a Gallagher (Cardax Commander) upgrade. 

The facility maintains a secure perimeter complete with electronic perimeter intrusion detection technology and the internal spaces are electronically controlled and monitored. Electronic security operations are conducted from the master control room located within the Frankland Centre.

Security systems are fundamental for the safety and wellbeing of staff, patients and visitors and accordingly are viewed as essential infrastructure. The existing Gallagher Cardax-based security management system provides the overall security system control and monitoring functionality for the Frankland Centre.

This system is currently a combination of legacy Cardax Commander equipment and the newer Gallagher FT Command Centre equipment. There are also interfaces with ancillary control devices which have resulted in numerous functional dependencies and interconnections. This request is for the upgrade of the existing system to contemporary standards. The RFP closes on May 18.♦
