Structured Cabling for Communications and Security at Bath & Millhaven Institutions

Bath is a medium security institution and Millhaven a maximum security facility both located in Bath, Ontario on the north shore of Lake Ontario approximately 20 kilometers West of Kingston. Millhaven and Bath were built to accomodate 413 and 342 inmates respectively. With the rise in inmate population over the years, both institutions now require an expansion for more accommodation

The requirement to build additional accommodation units has brought forth the need for a temporary construction fence to secure the construction within the compound. The design requires the use of video surveillance and intrusion detection comprised of vibration sensor cables and microwave technology.

To facilitate the increased inmate population, a newly expanded kitchen facility was required at both institutions for which Fancom designed the voice, video, intrusion detection, data communications and radio for security systems. The new spaces requiring design included the new kitchen entrance facility, main telecom room, security video monitoring and control centre.

Additional design requirements for the kitchen redesign included the following:

  • Identification of pathways for interconnection of new cables to connect with existing voice services located in other buildings
  • Identification of pathways for interconnection of new cables to connect with existing CSC data services located in other buildings
  • Addition upgrade of servers, licenses, and other equipment required tocapture and display the video information from the new cameras in the MCCP and new kitchen security offices
