The Stroh Brewing Company used a systems and team approach in designing and implementing the security program for its Detroit headquarters.
The security specifications required an integrated electronic system with flexibility, capacity for expansion, and ease and availability of service and maintenance. The facilities management system consists of a fully integrated network of computers throughout the complex. Each computer is monitored at a security control center and is interconnected by fiber optic cables. The network provides sophisticated closed-circuit television monitoring and communications, card access protection, fire and security supervision, and energy management capabilities. The main consoles are housed in a large computer room. Video terminals and printers provide information for the complex. The security center also monitors operations at other-plants through modems that communicate with remote computers and provides residential security protection for top executives. The security building also contains a strategic planning center, training room, equipment room, and operations room. The center also houses a private security service that Stroh helped establish and a ministation of the Detroit Police Department. Photographs.
