Upgrading Milton’s correctional centre with the very latest technology

This project involved major security upgrades to two maximum-security, 1,800-bed correctional facilities. The facilities are a combination of remand centre and correctional facility, consisting of various units, including POD-style units, segregation units, general population, protective population, program space, infirmary, kitchen cook-chill system, and laundry.

Lobo’s security systems included:

  • A Touchscreen Control System that integrated all security systems into one for optimal control and monitoring
  • Detention Door Control System to control and monitor 1,000+ doors
  • IP Video Surveillance System (1,800+ cameras)
  • Access Control System
  • Intercom System
  • Duress Alarm System
  • Personal Duress Alarm System
  • Watchtour System
  • Perimeter Detection System

The security systems were implemented while the facility was operational. As such, a detailed transition plan was created to ensure the existing systems remained functional while new systems were being installed. Numerous redundancies—including network and server redundancies—were built into the design to ensure zero downtime with any component failure.
