2020 Vision has a strong track record in both the public sector, working with diverse clients including universities and the NHS, and in the private sector with clients including Stenaline, which 2020 Vision helped to save £80m through a vehicle damage control project where 2020 Vision’s CCTV systems limited damage claims by offering HD images and footage of containers boarding ferries.
In its shortlisted work with the Birmingham Industry of Forestry Research (BIFoR), 2020 Vision was involved in a highly complex, ten year logistics project to safeguard a fenced off area of forest. 2020 Vision provided full perimeter protection, CCTV, a control room so authorities would be alerted in the case of a breach. This is one of only two similar projects worldwide which aims to provide fundamental science, social science and cultural research of direct relevance to forested landscapes anywhere in the world.
