Balfour Beatty VINCI has deployed the Halo Shield System as part of their HS2 Covid defence strategy.
They have added the innovative body temperature measuring system at key strategic venues to keep staff, visitors and suppliers safe.
The two buildings are crucial operational officers for the HS2 joint venture, with checks required to staff accessing via multiple entrances.
The Halo Shield Pod and Pod Lite Systems are positioned at every entrance to ensure every single person entering the building is properly scanned – to create safer working environments.

Red CCTV Managing Director Rob Kennedy, said: “It’s a real honor to be working with Balford Beatty VINCI on such a prestigious project.
“The West Midlands section of HS2’s Phase One route spans some 80km from Long Itchington in Warwickshire to the centre of Birmingham and onto Handsacre in Staffordshire.
“It is a massively important project and work will take ten years or so to complete Phase 1, and another five years after that for Phase 2, so it is crucial to avoid any delays.
“The Coronavirus pandemic has affected everybody and, of course, there is nothing more important than keeping people safe, but we can’t afford to let the economy slip and we must keep moving forward.
“We believe the Halo Shield System allows UK business to carry on working regardless of the pandemic. By doing the right thing, by staying safe we can carry on and still stop the spread.
“More and more businesses are seeking our help and using our product range to protect their staff, and Balfour Beatty VINCI is of those forward-thinking businesses who lead the way.”
