A nine block development of 85 apartments and maisonettes in London has utilised Comelit-PAC’s video door entry system and access control solutions to enhance security for residents.

Comelit-PAC partnered with Greywood to complete the project, a company that has a strong relationship with London Block Management. 

The historic St Paul’s Square development on 201 St John Street, offers a nine block development of 85 modern one, two and three bedroom apartments and maisonettes as well as an underground car park and a day porter.

Comelit-PAC and Greywood collaborated to provide a digital panel alongside nine bespoke video panels to accommodate different blocks within the development; access control was updated with the Simplekey advanced system.

“The building’s façade dates back to 1828 with the rear section added in the late 19th Century,” said Janet Topham, Resident Director of St Pauls. “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.”

Richard Bowden Brown, Operations Director, 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, Business Development Manager, South East, Comelit-PAC 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.”
