P & M Electrical Services are a well-established Surrey based firm working nationwide, that has traded since 1992, providing a first-class reliable service in all areas of Electrical installation and contracting.

P&M has contracted A-Plus Security on several MEPH jobs.


As with many of our commercial and mixed-use building projects, the building was semi-live, with occupied spaces on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors, so all works had to be minimally invasive and scheduled out of hours to limit disruption for tenants on site, working Monday to Friday daytimes. Due to the existing cabling being Pyro and not in a great state, all cabling had to be replaced throughout to give a fully tested system at handover.


We undertook a comprehensive security enhancement initiative. This included replacing the existing systems with a new encompassing system throughout the site, with new cabling and devices installed throughout the premises.

The system included over 200 Apollo devices spanning the basement, ground, multiple floors, and roof plant space to be strategically deployed. The existing Xpander wireless devices within the communal area were retained and integrated due to no cable access. Additionally, we replaced the Paxton access control system to accommodate two new lifts, resolved network issues, and updated software to the Pro version for cause-and-effect programming and lockdown functionality. New SA66 locks were also fitted to the new doors installed on the fire route to ensure full compliance. Lastly, we then installed a 1-loop Advanced Go panel on the ground floor within the retail unit. The system was interfaced to the Advanced Go and 2 x conventional systems in the ground floor retail units to allow notification and delayed evacuation should each other’s systems activate. Additionally, the system was also interfaced with the lifts for alternate grounding, directional fire escape signage, automatic doors, AOV vents, Access control and electrical systems on-site.

What our
clients have to
say about us

A Plus provides an excellent return on investment, not just through the solution installed, but the general experience they offer from pre-install to post-install and right through to the maintenance of the system. We knew we had made the right decision with A Plus as they offered a comprehensive and detailed proposal and project plan. The skill level of their engineers was a pleasant surprise with their knowledge of IT and networks, as well as electronic security, which made dealing with our internal IT team very smooth. Apart from that, the fact we never had to chase them for anything was a very nice surprise!

International Group of Schools

We chose A-Plus Security to carry out the upgrade of our electronic security systems for our 9 colleges and they have far exceeded our expectations in their approach to the projects. We are a UK wide organisation where the planning and mobilising of these major project around term times is time critical and A Plus Security have been nothing short of fantastic in the communication, there design proposals, openness to last minute changes, pre and post-sales support and their management of 3rd party companies and IT services. We would highly recommend A Plus Security to any organisation who are looking to install or upgrade their systems.

Nationwide Groups of Colleges

A Plus Security exceeded all expectations, following a late award of the contract due to a different contractor pulling out. All fire and security works were completed when requested and signed off on finish, with no issues noted. We have continued working with A Plus on following projects and would fully recommend them.
