The Thompson Group have a wide range of experience in the Education sector, including universities, colleges and BSF projects. From new build and refurbishment installations to ongoing service and maintenance contracts across many sites.

Academic institutions need to protect their investment in World class facilities and to maximise the ability of students to gain access and remain safe whilst on site, sometimes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; with higher and further education establishments often being additionally responsible for residential sites as well.

The Thompson Group have worked with a variety of learning providers over the years to create and install systems which primarily focus on automating access in order to increase learning opportunities, whilst minimising the burden on facilities managers & operational staff and ensuring the safety and protection of everyone on site.

A recent project saw the installation of a central control system enabling security staff to monitor geographically disparate sites from one location to reduce costs and improve efficiency.
