What Was Installed

  • Access Control

CSK Projects, one of the UK’s leading workplace design and build specialist, were instructed to carry out the office design, fit out and furniture project for the new headquarters. Nord Anglia’s new London home – Victoria’s high spec office building Nova South – required a highly effective access control system, which was provided by IDS.

Electronic access control systems are increasingly being used to enhance safety and security in all commercial establishments. Moreover educational establishments, even back of house offices have a duty of care to provide a safe environment for the handling of sensitive pupil information, a good access control system can help reduce threats and data breaches.

Tas Kyriacou, IDS Director, details the chosen solution, “We installed a Paxton Net2 system to provide Nord Anglia with an integrated solution that works seamlessly with their landlord’s system. Being such a large building it was crucial that the solution was robust and effective. We worked closely with the client to ensure we delivered the right features for their environment, with the system up and running, they have complete control over who has accesses to their office, from an easy to use platform.”
