Securitas Electronic Security was awarded “Integrated Installation of the Year” by Security Sales & Integration at the 22nd Annual SAMMY Awards Tuesday, April 4 in Las Vegas. This coveted distinction was awarded to Securitas Electronic Security (SES) for superior project design and skill based on a large-scale, complex security integration project for Wells Fargo & Co., ranked No. 27 on Fortune’s 2016 rankings of America’s largest corporations.
The award was achieved as a result of a 2016 complex integration project for Wells Fargo’s East Town campus in Minneapolis, MN. The 17-story buildings, designed and constructed following LEED Platinum standards, span 1.1 million square feet. Today, 5,000 Minnesota team members from 59 Wells Fargo lines of business office out of the campus. The project included intrusion, video, access, turnstiles, mantraps, visitor management and a campus-wide IP intercom – all monitored from a central command center designed by SES.
