London Borough of Merton choose CSS

Earlier this year the London Borough of Merton selected CSS to undertake the installation of a replacement access control system within their Civic Centre offices. After  consultation with the client, CSS were able to not only meet the requirements of the clients original system specification, but were also able to offer a number of additional features which included the capability for photocopier and PC log in.

Working closely with the councils Facilities Management section and the installation team from our associate company Security Systems Design Ltd., we were able to undertake the installation with minimal disruption to the clients day to day operation whilst still being able to maintain the security of the building. Due to the restrictive working arrangements of the building the bulk of the installation work was undertaken outside of normal hours, enabling the works to be completed ahead of the agreed programme completion date.

The phased change over to the new access systems was closely supervised, resulting in a smooth transition and a very satisfied client.
