North furthers Edinburgh’s smart city ambitions

North has delivered a new City Operations Centre for the City of Edinburgh Council as part of a £2.6m contract.

The new centre is designed to position Edinburgh as a leader in the UK for smart security and surveillance tools.

Council Leader Cammy Day said: “With cutting-edge low-carbon technology designed to keep the city moving and our communities safe, it steps up our capabilities as a Council.

Edinburgh is fast becoming an example of a truly smart city and its thanks to trailblazing projects like this.”

Scott McEwan, acting CEO at North, added: “The City of Edinburgh Council is making transformational steps to becoming a Smart City and its forward-thinking approach to the adoption of IoT solutions will help to accelerate their ambition to reaching such status.”

As part of the delivery, North contributed to a number of community benefits to help deliver social value within local neighbourhoods.

This included recruiting an Edinburgh-based modern apprentice and an apprentice to assist the roll-out of the CCTV network and the provision of curriculum support activities to local schools and community volunteers.
