Broadgate Estates is a leading nationwide Property Management company representing the interests of premium Developers across some of UK’s most prestigious spaces.
4 Kingdom St is set amid the Paddington Central development, an innovative use of an 11 acre site set between the competing commuter traffic of Paddington Station and the A40. Gratte Brothers was appointed to undertake elements of the Security system on the project.
Over a 12-month programme and the building’s 10 floors, which include the reception, conference areas and rooftop basketball court, Gratte Brothers installed a Gallagher Access Control System with Lift Integration and Comelit Intercom. This system was configured to work with the clients existing Network with the management of the system controlled from the front desk.
Innovative solutions and detailed logistical planning were required to manoeuvre large equipment through the narrow site and into position within high internal spaces. The Ground floor level is stepped and leads to the Conference Centre. To facilitate the security installation within these areas Gratte Brothers fabricated ramps on site to allow the safe movement of equipment.
To meet the high standard of finish required, Gratte Brothers produced bespoke Intercom Panels to house the Gallagher readers. These were installed at the entrance and at the rear of the building to integrate with the bi-fold vehicle entrance gates.
