Description of Site

Security By Design has provided services to EBMUD since 1984 on over 24 different projects. The largest of these projects was the new Headquarters building in Oakland, California, which was a 10-story office building with three levels of underground parking.

Other projects were at the Water Division's maintenance centers, a new stores building, and remote sites such as fleet garages, dams, reservoirs, pipelines and pumping stations. Some of these sites are un-staffed.

SBD has also been involved in a system upgrade for the Wastewater Division, which included their main treatment plant and remote plants. These sites are monitored at both Wastewater's main operations center and at the Corporate control center.

Security By Design Involvement

For the new Administration Building Project, SBD provided EBMUD with conceptual and schematic security designs, biddable contract documents, assisted with the bid award process, installation overview, and final acceptance testing. The project included proximity access control, utilizing optical turnstiles at the main entrance, CCTV, intercom, alarm monitoring, and a state-of-the art central control room.

SBD services for other sites primarily included vulnerability studies, system design for detection systems, and CCTV for alarm verification and audit trails.

Of Special Interest

The Headquarters project was part of the Oakland's Chinatown Redevelopment Project. Because of this, it adjoins a shopping mall and apartment/condominium complex which share the parking garage. SBD provided control over access in order to separate EBMUD employees, visitors, and mall traffic under various time and usage scenarios. The design also incorporated audio alarm capability along with CCTV to enhance safety and security in the garage areas.

Remote site features that are monitored by the Central Control Room include: access control, audio communication, remote entrance release, and video transmission.
