Simeio to provide biometric access control for V&A new gallery project

  • 17 Nov 2014

Forming part of the museum’s major overhaul programme, development works will provide a large column-free underground exhibition gallery.

An open courtyard and improved entrance into the Museum will also be created at street level set within the historic facades of the V&A’s Grade I listed building.

Main contractor: Wates Construction

Biometric access control system

Construction workers will verify their credentials and activity through Simeio’s biometric access points onsite.

The biometric access control system will

  • manage the time and attendance of workers
  • integrate their CSCS control and reporting

The fingerprint technology will also measure the amount of carbon used by workers and suppliers – a government requirement for projects of this size.

Simeio will provide the data recorded to subcontractor MadiganGill, a construction solutions company specialising in labour and management provision and construction logistics.

Ollie McGovern, Managing Director of Simeio: “It’s amazing to be working on a project with such historic significance and gravitas. We look forward to contributing to the efficient day to day management of the site and the sustainability of the project.”
