Security By Design
5528 Pacheco Blvd.
Pacheco, CA 94553
Chevron Chemical - Hilltop
Description Of Site
Approximately 500,000 square feet of research facilities
including laboratories and administration offices.
Security By Design Involvement
Developed a complete security system for the new Richmond
Bio-Laboratory and Research Facility (Ortho Research Division).
The system included access control, closed circuit television,
intercom, and a small control room with a separate reception
desk combined with a security guard station.
Designed access control for all laboratory areas to limit
access into all of the interior areas. As part of the alarm
system, SBD designed a monitoring system to detect temperature
variances inside the laboratory areas to detect any excessive
temperatures that might threaten experiments in progress.
Added security into another Chevron environmental research
facility that was located down the hill where the pesticide
testing was conducted. This system included access control,
and closed circuit television and was connected to the central
system at the Bio-Laboratory facility.
Of Special Interest
In both areas, Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras were installed to observe
all perimeter areas and fencing to detect intrusion. Access
controlled vehicle gates were also monitored by video.
