NW Systems’ Remote Manager keeps a watchful eye on groundbreaking green construction of the Marks & Spencer Cheshire Oaks site

NW Systems Group’s Remote Manager video solution was used by leading construction firm Simons Group to monitor and retain a visual record of the construction of Marks & Spencer 195,000 square foot Cheshire Oaks site, near Liverpool.

The groundbreaking store opened by Joanna Lumley and Marks & Spencer’s chief executive Marc Bolland on 29th August 2012, is the second largest Marks & Spencer store ever built and its most environmentally-friendly one to date.

Remote Manager was used to help Simons Group and its customer Marks & Spencer monitor progress of the flagship store’s internal build and fit-out. They used Remote Manager from November 2011 to June 2012 to monitor progress of this groundbreaking development, ensuring that environmental targets for recycling and use of green materials were being met and monitoring key building milestones including the fitting of multi-million pound escalators.

Remote Manager is a unique video monitoring service specifically designed for the construction and development industry. It is an all-in-one package offering system design, installation, wireless connectivity and full hosting of 24 by 7 time-lapse video recordings for the entire length of any construction project. A total of eight Mobotix 3 megapixel network cameras were fitted internally to provide HD resolution video on the Marks & Spencer site’s internal build and fit-out over a six month period.

Ed Dixon, Environmental Champion, Simons Group, said:
“Remote Manager gave us a very impressive user interface, diligent installation operatives, excellent customer support and personable account management from key staff.”

Frank Crouwel, managing director, NW Systems Group, said:
“We are very proud to have played a part in supporting such a groundbreaking green construction project as M&S Cheshire Oaks store. This is currently M&S’ flagship ‘Store for the Future’ and it is great that Remote Manager helped keep the project on track and on schedule.”
