Wells Fargo Bank

Security By Design has provided consulting and design services to Wells Fargo Bank over many years and many projects. The first project in the 1979 was an upgrade to many aspects of the present operations center. Wells had the master lease for the bottom 27 floors of a 38 story high rise in San Francisco. Due to the high security issues at this site, SBD was asked to come up with a way to move the entire 27-floor volume of people through a card in - card out system where each card was presented only once, and allowed only one person in or out. The result was the first implementation of optical turnstiles on the West coast, and the initial development of these ergonomic control mechanisms.

This same building had an old building control and fire management system, which was malfunctioning. SBD specified and managed the replacement of the entire fire management infrastructure for the site. This was a complex process due to the fact that the fire systems were split with the bottom 27-floors on one system and the top 11 floors on another.

For the New Data Center, SBD designed systems for alarm monitoring, access control, fire protection, and critical systems monitoring. A complete redesign of the Halon System for 87,000 square feet of raised floor area was included. SBD also designed the data center process alarm

collection and E.P.O. system for the entire data center.
A series of mantraps was used for the data center that incorporated networked Siemens controllers, integrated video switching, and fingerprint authentication. Other mantraps were implemented at additional sites.

A Credit Card Processing Center with high value loss potential became a critical site with many high security features and systems.

Work with Wells Fargo Bank has extended over many years with other projects that were designed, implemented, and signed off, including cash vaults and print shops.

For the Wells Fargo Museum in downtown San Francisco, SBD designed a security alarm system to protect the historical memorabilia. The alarms were transmitted to the onsite attendants. A personal safety alarm system was used in an unusual way where the transmitters were on at all times and the receivers were within the sealed cases. If any case was opened, the receiver would sense this condition and report which case it was to the docents.

SBD created Bank Branch Security Architectural standards in conjunction with the Real Estate division. This set of standards was used for all new construction of branches.
