Evotek Projects

At Evotek we are proud to partner with our clients in finding great solutions to improve security and operational objectives. Our featured projects below are a small sample to demonstrate our innovation, capability and resourcing availability to undertake large scale and national projects for our clients.


Christchurch Airport

Christchurch International Airport is the gateway to the South Island. It employs approximately 180 staff, has over 5,000 cardholders using the security system and up to 15,000 visitors to the airport each day.

With interchangeable domestic and international air bridges a unique door and zone management system was required.

Evotek developed a fully automated swing gate system, able to be operated by air crew, and allowing multiple air bridges to be used as either domestic or international arrivals or departure gates.

This project incorporates state-of-the art technology and Gallagher - Cardax access control. The system has more than 400 access control doors and 300 CCTV cameras throughout the terminal. It allows airport operations staff to monitor every swing gate and access point and ensures the customs screen process is secure, while allowing full access for emergency personnel.

As the new Christchurch Airport terminal was upgraded, Evotek was able to expand the security and swing gate system as required.

Transpower

Evotek’s expertise was called on to provide electronic security services for national grid provider, Transpower. Health and safety of contractors is of prime importance to Transpower across all national sites. They aimed to improve site security levels and reduce the risks associated with contractors working on site.

The brief included the control and audit of keys to critical areas, including the high voltage switch yards.

Evotek designed and manufactured a secure key safe to manage and monitor all onsite keys. The existing Gallagher access control system was already in place throughout Transpower, and was customised nationwide to accommodate the new key management system.

Evotek’s solution enabled Transpower total control over all keys released to contractors. Only specified staff and contractors were allowed access to the key safe. Transpower is now able to monitor all key movements, including when a key is not returned.

The system is monitored nationally by Evotek’s 24 hour support helpdesk.

Canterbury DHB needed a single company to providing electronic security to understand their requirements, improve security, understand the unique environment, all within a fixed operational budget annually.

Evotek was appointed the sole electronic security provider over ten years ago, and over that time hospital security has increased substantially.
Currently the organisation has in excess of 600 access controlled doors, in 40 locations, in addition to electronically controlled drug safes, CCTV and other essential equipment.
