Halcrow is a UK based Engineering Consultancy that specialises in the provision of planning, design and management services for infrastructure developments worldwide. The company is undertaking commissions in over 70 countries from a network of more than 90 offices. Its customers include government departments, public sector authorities and utilities, industrial and commercial companies, international funding agencies and financial institutions.

West London Security (WLS) have been working with Halcrow for some 20 years now, initially installing a fire alarm system in their previous HQ building. Some 12 years later the building was refurbished and again WLS were chosen to install the new access control and CCTV systems. Following Halcrow’s purchase of Elms House (the old EMI building) in Brook Green, WLS were nominated by Halcrow as their security supplier and were nominated to the main contractor, M Moser Associates, to install an integrated security system including CCTV and access control, together with a set of glass turnstiles in the main entrance to the building.

Elms House is a 5 story building and was purchased to provide a larger headquarters building for Halcrow's London based staff and visiting clients. The brief was to provide a state of the art integrated security system which would cover the entire building, accommodating Halcrow’s security needs whilst incorporating the modern decor and feel of the building. Our installation consisted of 28 cameras, 26 access control doors, 3 lanes of speed stiles, roller shutters and an innovative car park traffic light system. The main entrance doors are free access during working hours, with the design of the large reception area ensuring that all users pass by the reception desk and then on to the three lanes of glass speed stiles, allowing card holders to admit themselves, whilst visitors are let in through a separate glass motorised pass gate controlled from the reception desk. This ensures maximum usability whilst maintaining security at all times. After hours, the access control system extends to the main entrance doors, with visitors having to use a BPT video entry system to call reception. The CCTV system is once again designed to be as unobtrusive as possible. The 28 cameras monitor the ground floor perimeter of the building and key areas internally. They are all viewed from a central security room with 30 day playback available at all times. WLS also designed and installed a bespoke vehicular access system at the car park entry and exit points, allowing vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians to share a single track rampway between the upper and lower level car park levels, efficiently and without conflict.

Chris Townsend, group estate manager for Halcrow, commented: "once again West London Security have provided us with a first rate job and a system that we feel confident. WLS have delivered a technically challenging brief within an ambitious programme and remain our trusted security partners. Well done".
