Chubb drew on the capabilities of the entire UTC Fire & Security group to successfully secure contracts that will include over 1000 alarm points, 300 access control readers, 750 IP video cameras together with sprinkler systems.

The security project is led by Chubb, with the support of UTC Fire & Security company Lenel, experts in access control and integrated security solutions. Hall & Kay, also part of UTC Fire & Security, will be providing specialist fire fighting equipment and sprinkler systems. Otis Elevator Company, another United Technologies unit, has also secured a significant contract for the centre.

Westfield Stratford City and London’s Olympic Park together span 700 acres and account for one of the largest urban regeneration projects ever undertaken in the UK. Housing more than 300 retail units and covering over 1.9 million square feet of retail and leisure space, Westfield Stratford City will also include multiple mixed-use facilities including a cinema, hotels, offices and homes.

The UTC Fire & Security businesses leveraged existing customer relationships as part of its 2012 Olympic Project strategy to secure the contract, says Paul Winnowski, President of UTC Fire & Security’s United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa (UKISA) business: “It is the combination of expertise that gives Chubb its strength,” he says.

“We have a unique value proposition that we can bring to the table and are creating a cross business unit collaboration blueprint for the future – a new template where the sum of our strengths enables us to demonstrate commercial and operational advantages that have broad appeal, especially for major customers such as Westfield.”
