Stryker UK Headquarters Newbury

Stryker are global leaders in medical technology providing specialist orthopaedic and surgical equipment to healthcare professionals across the world including the British NHS and UK private medical organisations.

The Challenge

The new build of Stryker UK’s headquarters had to be completed within a strict 30-week contract, which commenced during some of the worst winter weather experienced in recent years.Stryker_1

The Solution

Through a proactive and rigorous approach, Abel met key project deadlines despite construction delays earlier in the build caused by snow and ice. Work included the supply, installation and commission of:

  • Fire & intruder alarm systems
  • CCTV system consisting of a significant number of cameras
  • Access control system with a sizeable amount of network controlled doors
  • Voice evacuation system
  • Disable refuge system
  • Disabled toilet alarms
  • Watchtour Patrol system

In addition Abel provide 24/7 monitoring and maintenance from their Communication and Monitoring Centre.

The Result

Working with our Contractor, we were able to be flexible to support the programme and ensure a successful conclusion. Both Electrical Contractor and the main building contractor were very impressed with Abel’s approach, leading to further opportunities for projects of this size.
