Chancery House

Teaming up with Fora (formerly known as The Office Group), Opem embarked on a groundbreaking venture to revolutionise security measures at Chancery House. Employing advanced Salto SPACE software and pioneering digital keyless access techniques, the project sought to harmoniously merge intuitive security functionalities, thereby enhancing building management protocols, all while upholding the sophisticated ambience of the vibrant flexible workspace.

INTRODUCING FORA AT CHANCERY HOUSE

Fora, the consumer-facing brand of The Office Group (TOG), is renowned for providing flexible workspace solutions across London, the UK, and Germany. With over 60 unique workspaces, they cater to businesses of all sizes. 

The building boasts a captivating past steeped in history. Initially, the iconic Silver Vaults were crafted from repurposed materials, including an abandoned post office and an underground tunnel, dating back to 1885. However, the structure endured the ravages of World War II, resulting in the bombing of the original above-ground building. Subsequently, in the 1950s, the edifice was reconstructed, retaining elements of the original basement Silver Vaults, shaping its present-day form.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Opem’s long-standing relationship with Fora positioned them as the premier choice for the transformative endeavour at Chancery House. Entrusted with implementing advanced security solutions, Opem aimed to seamlessly interconnect all building locations using cutting-edge technology, enhancing operational efficiency to unprecedented levels. This endeavour required the seamless integration of smart building systems, achieved through the deployment of CCTV and Salto SPACE access control systems.
