THE 22nd annual Australian Security Industry Awards for Excellence – an ASIAL initiative – and the 3rd annual Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs), again shared a prestigious awards ceremony and dinner in front of a sell-out crowd at Crown Melbourne on 19 October.

“The awards recognise the industry’s role in protecting Australian society from security threats and commitment to excellence," said ASIAL CEO, Bryan de Caires, "The high standard of entries continues to raise the bar each year and is a credit to all entrants, finalists and winners.”

Professor Martin Gill, managing director of the OSPAs said, “OSPA winners in Australia join a small elite group around the world who have shown outstanding performance. The OSPAs are now offered in eight countries.”

Winners included:

Schneider Electric Buildings Australia and Fredon Security – Joint winners for Integrated Security Solution Large over $500,000

Schneider Electric Project – Sunshine Coast University Hospital

A highly complex project. The security and automation system is cutting edge, merging multiple sub systems into one work station while retaining layers of redundancy. The scale of the project included, 2500 access control doors, 60 lock down areas, 800 Pelco cameras and 360 Jacques intercoms. The size of floor space covered was comparable to 5 x 25 floor buildings and used over 800,000 meters of cabling.

Fredon Project – New Australian Embassy in Bangkok

The embassy required specialised security systems to deal with a mix of uses including public access, offices and high sensitivity areas. The construction took 40 months in hot and humid conditions. A Gallagher command centre was used for the access control and alarm management system with high level interfaces into multiple external systems. For CCTV a Pelco Endura management system was used.

MSS Security – winner for Outstanding Security Partnership

For 98 days MSS partnered with the Australian Grand Prix Corporation to support 800 event and hospitality staff and control all aspects of event security, crowd control, traffic management and parking operations. Behind the success of the Grand Prix is a dedicated MSS Security management team who are passionate about what they do.
