Radio Communications provider Brentwood Communications is supplying two-way radios to the construction team working on the ‘Walkie Talkie’ building in London.
The distinctive 38-floor building on Fenchurch Street is aptly named because its shape reminds people of a two-way radio. Once completed, the building in the capital’s finance and insurance district will house London’s tallest public park on the top three floors of the building.
Essex-based Brentwood Communications won the contract to supply radios to the personnel involved in the building process until 2014. The contract is for the installation of DP3400 digital radios and a repeater with a strategically placed antenna to provide coverage across the whole building.
Two-way radios from Brentwood Communications guarantee 100% coverage at all times as they benefit from the latest advances in technology. One of the main features is Lone Worker, a feature that helps monitor the safety of staff by emitting a bleep which will automatically send an alert to the other radios or a monitoring station should the person using the device not respond.
James Miller, Managing Director of Brentwood Communications said:
“We are very proud to be associated with such an impressive construction project in our country’s capital. The building itself will be a marvel once it is completed and we look forward to viewing the final structure.”
