Panasonic Security Solution Helps Keep Denver Federal Complex Safe

Denver’s Cesar E. Chavez Memorial Building houses seven federal agencies – the largest saturation of federal agencies outside of Washington, D.C. – providing a variety of services to the community on a local and national level. In 2012, the building underwent extensive renovations to improve the facilities for its hundreds of employees and visitors. Updated lighting systems, high-efficiency elevators and an exterior aluminum- and glass-curtain wall system that helps reduce energy consumption all contributed to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certification the building received when renovations were complete.


An integral part of the renovation was a complete replacement of the building’s dated analog security and surveillance system with a new IP-based system to better protect the building and people who work and visit there each day.

“Since the Panasonic system was deployed nearly one year ago, the system has been incredibly reliable, delivering crystal-clear HD images of the interior and exterior of the building with no equipment failures or other issues,” says Didier.
