Comelit-PAC Partners with Greywood to Secure St Paul’s Square

Comelit-PAC’s video door entry system and access control solutions have been specified at the historic St Paul’s Square development for the ultimate security of residents.

St Paul’s Square, located in the iconic 201 St John Street, offers a nine block development of 85 modern one, two and three bedroom apartments and maisonettes in the heart of London, with the benefit of an underground car park and a day porter.

Comelit-PAC was the door entry system of choice for Greywood who has a close working relationship with London Block Management as the dedicated managing agents to the development.

The specification included a digital panel alongside nine secondary bespoke video panels to accommodate the different blocks within the development. Access control was updated with Comelit-PAC’s dedicated Simplekey advanced system.

Says Janet Topham, Resident Director of St Pauls: “The building’s façade dates back to 1828 with the rear section added in the late 19th Century. Any updates to the security on site have to been installed sensitively in line with the historic ambience of the building. We have put our trust in our long term working relationship with Greywood to specify to achieve these objectives whilst still offering latest door entry and access control technology for our residents.”

Greywood installed one digital panel with prox cut-out to the main entrance of the building, complemented with nine secondary bespoke video panels to gain access to each development.

Each apartment block has been fitted with Comelit-PAC’s specialist simpleKey access control solution coupled with mini hands-free monitors, allowing visual door entry operating through its specialist SimpleBus 2-Wire solution. The powerful combination presents residents with smart capability to answer access requests remotely and manage home access.

Richard Bowden Brown, Operations Director at Greywood added: “The benefit of using Comelit-PAC is the retrofit benefits, where we could reuse existing cabling to install the bespoke video panels for the development. At St Paul’s Square, this made it a simple and quick system to deploy, and it was all completed in just eight days! The result is a complete upgrade of the door entry systems and access control for the benefit of residents, installed with minimal disruption and with no compromise to the historic style on site.”

Gareth Van Der Merwe, Comelit-PAC Business Development Manager for South East region concluded: “What our long term relationship with Greywood demonstrates is our preferred approach to working with clients, in true partnership. This ensures we can become the first port of call to support bespoke specification and design in projects such as St Paul’s Square, to enabling a smooth installation process and the delivery of a complete solution for access control and door entry.”
