The project will provide a life safety system during the construction phase on the facility, but will be repurposed to provide a complete safety and security solution as the project moves into production phase.
“We are delighted to partner with CNL Software. We are seeing more and more projects requiring PSIM software to ensure integration, management and complete situation awareness” commented Mike Pugh, CEO of Western Advance, “A key requirement of this project was to source a solution that is future-proof. IPSecurityCenter offers us the peace of mind that the systems in phase one will work together with the systems added in subsequent phases, to provide a complete integrated solution.”
