In the fast-paced world of pharmaceuticals, ensuring the safety and security of valuable assets is paramount. This is where Sharp Group steps in, providing comprehensive security solutions from laboratory to warehouse, safeguarding every step of the way.

Protecting Every Detail

At the heart of every pharmaceutical operation lies the laboratory, buzzing with activity and innovation. Sharp Group understands the importance of managing access and egress within these sensitive spaces. Our expert team offer state-of-the-art security measures, from reliable CCTV monitoring to stringent access control protocols. With our central monitoring station offering rapid response capabilities, rest assured that your laboratory environment remains secure at all times.

Once your valuable assets are ready for transport, Sharp Group employs layers of security to shield them en route. With real-time tracking and constant monitoring ensuring the safety of your valuable cargo and drivers alike.

Beyond Physical Barriers

Upon arrival at the destination, protection extends beyond mere physical barriers. With 24/7 surveillance, access control systems, and intrusion detection technology, Sharp Group ensures that your assets remain secure. Our vigilant security personnel conduct patrols and monitor surveillance feeds meticulously, providing an additional layer of protection.

Enhancing Security for a Leading Global Manufacturer

Our client, a leading global manufacturer of injectable pharmaceuticals and biotechnology devices, faced the challenge of expanding its operations in the Irish market. With almost 10,000 team members across 50 sites worldwide and manufacturing over 40 billion components and devices each year, they needed robust security and fire strategies to support their growth.

Addressing the Challenge

In 2020, Sharp Group was tasked with designing a fire and security solution for a new building on the client’s campus in Damastown. As the project progressed, it became clear that integrating the security operations of both new and existing buildings was essential for optimal safety and efficiency.

Creating a Secure Environment

Phase one of the project involved the installation of an Access Control System in the new purpose-built facility, encompassing over 100 doors and seamlessly integrating with the existing system. Phase two focused on consolidating the security systems of both buildings into one integrated solution, facilitated by a secure fibre network. This network enabled centralised monitoring and control from a new security reception area, ensuring round-the-clock surveillance without disrupting daily operations.

Enhanced Control and Cost Savings

The implementation of over 200 cameras, access control for 200 doors, and advanced analytics tools such as ANPR cameras resulted in increased control and visibility for our client. The centralised security reception allowed for streamlined management of electronic security services and visitor management systems, further enhancing security protocols.

Future projects include the installation of fully managed turnstiles in both buildings, along with external turnstiles to track staff movement between sites. These initiatives not only improve security but also contribute to potential cost savings of approximately €700,000 over three years.
