CSK Projects were appointed to create and design a new 7000 sq ft office space for Energy UK. Along with many exciting features such as, a live growing plant wall, a pool table and inventive artwork, Energy UK specified the need for a simple to use process for controlling who enters and leaves the premises.

What Was Installed

  • Access Control

Having worked with IDS on past projects, CSK turned to the technology integrator for an access control solution.


IDS supplied, installed, tested and commissioned a Paxton Net2 Plus access control system.  The Paxton system was selected to coordinate with an existing Paxton control panel and also function on the Net2 software to enable enrolment as and when required.

Tas Kyriacou, Head of Business Development IDS, comments, “It was an honour to work with Energy UK to find the right solution for their new offices. The completed space looks amazing and the access control functionality complements the office environment.”


Su Yen Foong, Commercial Manager, Energy UK, states, “IDS were very helpful in the process of setting up our access control. When we needed to reconfigure the system to meet our fire regulations they responded and reacted quickly to find a suitable solution.”
