Evolution Finance Manager, Kevin Burnham, wins Driver of the Day trophy at Silverstone on 24/25 June 2017. 

Engine trouble meant qualification was curtailed and a start from the back of the grid with a fantastic climb to a 9th place finish!   

Kevin says:

"The weekend didn’t start well as the new engine only managed 4 laps in the Saturday morning qualifying before something went wrong with it. This resulted in frantic work between qualifying and the Saturday afternoon race to try and find out and fix the problem. Unfortunately the problem was discovered to be terminal and the engine was in need of a full rebuild. I was then forced to watch the first race from the pit wall thinking my weekend was over before it began.

After the race my Dad who owns and runs the car had a crazy idea of changing the engine back to the original one in order to keep the weekend alive. This couldn’t be done without the help of some of the fellow drivers and after a brief chat with some key experts we were go. It was at 5:30pm that my Dad and I set off on a 2hour round trip to pick up the old engine from home while some other drivers worked on removing the broken one. It was at 12 o’clock at night when the car was finally back together and ready to go for race 2 at 9am Sunday Morning. This is a prime example of the Clubmans spirit where off track everyone will go out of their way to help their fellow competitor."

"We selected Evolution Security to be our access control and CCTV partner in 2016 after a process of assessing numerous other security integration companies.  We were impressed by the professionalism and enthusiasm of the team that presented here on site.

During this period we have had interactions with various members of Evolution staff from sales, engineers and service management.  All communication is clear and concise.  Changes to the schedules are communicated promptly and lead times are accurately gauged.  This is essential when planning in house resources and for ensuring compliance to project timelines.

The new installations have been of a high standard.  All works have been carried out in line with our on-site safety requirements.  No corrective actions were communicated to the Evolution staff.  The Evolution engineers arrived for their first visit to site with a well prepared safety system already in place.  All paperwork and qualifications were delivered in advance which again sped up the permitting process.  The quality of all mechanical and electrical installations was tested and checked by Boston Scientific engineering staff and it was found to be of a high standard."

This month we start the celebrations for our 20th birthday!  In January 1996 Evolution began and 20 years later, we have grown, but we still hold the same values as we did at the start; to foster long-term relationships with multi-site and multi-national clients by providing intelligent security advice, high quality installations and effective service and maintenance.

Many of our early clients are still with us today and we thank them for their continued support as we and our industry and products have changed.  Our work has changed beyond recognition since 1996 as we have seen the developments in IT which we have all experienced affecting every part of our lives.

Coming from an industry which started with alarms and locks, our teams have had to embrace these new technologies and are no longer just intruder alarm engineers and locksmiths, but also IT technicians and network specialists.

Above all, Evolution is about its people and their dedication and we all look forward this year to celebrating what we have achieved so far.

The system was designed, installed and integrated with the access control card entry counting system just in time so on the "Big Day" a parking disaster was averted!

Thankfully not all projects are this intense but our client could trust us to deliver.
