Whitepaper: Boosting efficiency and streamlining security with an integrated access control solution


 Antron Security and Inner Range provide integrated solution for prestigious commercial London property

Antron Security and Inner Range have installed an integrated access control and security system at the White Chapel Building in Aldgate, London.

Antron Security project-managed the design and installation for property owner, Derwent London, while Inner Range provided the core access control and intruder detection system that enabled a bespoke solution for the commercial office site.

Derwent London’s complete refurbishment of the building meant they required a new security system that delivered solutions for all their own and potential tenants’ needs.

These included:

  • Intelligent IP-based access control system.
  • Tenant access to assigned floor/s and approved areas only.
  • Efficient system to manage visitors.
  • Ability to restrict unapproved visitors to lobby area.
  • Installation of CCTV cameras with remote monitoring facilities.
  • Panic button and lock-down facilities in case of emergency.
  • Security and access control across the site – 272,900 sq ft (25,350 sq m), 26 doors and around 2,000 users.

Inner Range’s powerful Integriti integrated access control and intruder detection system was installed for exceptional security protection including full integration with 35 new CCTV cameras.

Everything is accessible to security managers remotely.

The system includes integration with three lifts and four IDL Fastlane turnstiles, while tenants can use their smartphones for access via the HID Mobile Access Twist and Go app.

A BluePoint visitor pass management was integrated so tenants can create secure temporary passes for visitors.

The system also includes panic buttons and a lock down facility in case of emergency.

“The flexibility of the Integriti system makes it future-proof.” Jamie Crane, commercial director, Antron Security

Jamie Crane, Commercial Director at Antron Security, said: “The flexibility of the Integriti system makes it future-proof as we can continue to meet the ever-changing requirements of the landlord and tenants via Inner Range’s ability to integrate with third party systems and devices such as lifts, intercoms, lighting and building management devices.”

Other Integriti features in use at the White Chapel Building include:

  • Gigabytes of on-board memory at controller hardware level to ensure the system maintains complete functionality even if offline.
  • Seamless IP-based multi-controller system architecture options.
  • Easy plug-and-play in UniBus, an innovative in-cabinet bus which allows the connection of expansion modules, communications modules, and door and reader modules to extend the range and scope of the Integriti

Benefits for the landlord, tenants and visitors include:

  • Trouble-free tenant access to their approved parts of the building.
  • The improvements in access and security means reception staff are more productive and efficient.
  • Security managers are able to monitor events easily and remotely.
  • More accurate reporting on who is where in the building helps with health and safety as well as security activities.
  • The Integriti system allows the landlord to manage operational costs more effectively while providing tenants with a more secure working environment.

Derwent London, a FTSE 250 Index British-based property development and investment firm with a property portfolio worth £4.9 billion, acquired the White Chapel Building in central London in December 2015.

The firm is renowned for using design-led approaches to create inspiring office space and began a two-phase project to regenerate the eight-storey commercial building.

Situated on an acre of land opposite Aldgate East Tube station, the White Chapel Building is valued between £100million and £200million and is home to various well-known brands including international mobile call company, Lebara, and global architecture and design firm, Perkins+Will. The lower floors, which are still being completed, are due to become home to a major new photography museum, Fotografiska.
