Campus Access Control System (CACS)
Installation Process/ Phase Two
Design For Project Determined
In order to move a CACS installation forward meetings are held to discuss the design for the project. The building contacts, the Building Access Coordinator (BAC) are required to be fully engaged in the design aspect of the project and meet with the Project Manager who facilitates the discussion. Office of Design and Construction is also fully engaged in the physical design. Design considerations include:
- How is the building used? (i.e. dormitory, laboratory, administrative, academic, or athletic building)
- Who should have access to the building?
- Which doors should be monitored by CACS?
- Which doors are used for both exit and entrance?
- What doors are exit doors only?
- What doors are not used for exit or entrance but need to be monitored?
- Where will card readers be placed?
- What doors need to be grouped together for access control?
- What doors need to be replaced because structurally unable to support system?
