CLIENT: University of Cape Town
Founded in 1829, UCT has a proud tradition of academic excellence and effecting social change and development through its pioneering scholarship, faculty and students. It is also renowned for its striking beauty, with its campus located at the foot of Table Mountain's Devil's Peak, with panoramic views of much of Cape Town.
UCT has a total of 180 buildings with 1800 access controlled doors and approximately 30 000 students and staff who frequent and or reside within the campus on a daily basis. Therefore, the security of all members of the campus community is of paramount concern due to the potentially high fire and security risks.
