Huckletree, a pioneer in design-led office spaces, operates a prominent location in Kensington, West London. Seeking a more cost-effective and advanced security solution, Huckletree engaged Opem Security to take over their existing security assets and integrate systems for enhanced monitoring. The initial security setup comprised CCTV, access control, and a manned guard, but the client was determined to streamline operations, improve user experience, and reduce costs.


Huckletree faced challenges with the high cost associated with maintaining a manned guard at their Kensington building. They were keen on maintaining a secure environment but sought a solution that would increase operational efficiency, user experience, and future-proof their security infrastructure. Opem was tasked with bringing together existing security assets into an integrated system that could support the client’s expansion plans.

Leveraging their industry expertise, Opem aimed to create a streamlined, future-proofed solution that would align with the design-led ethos of the Kensington building.

Opem Security initiated the project by conducting a comprehensive assessment of Huckletree’s existing security infrastructure. The focus was on integrating CCTV and access control systems to eliminate the need for a manned guard while ensuring optimal security coverage. Opem’s design-led approach considered the aesthetics of the building, seamlessly incorporating security measures without compromising the overall design.

The integrated solution provided centralised monitoring and management, allowing for real-time oversight of security measures. Access control was refined to provide a frictionless experience for occupants, and strategically placed CCTV cameras ensured comprehensive coverage of the entire site. Opem’s future-proofing strategy allowed for scalability, ensuring the solution could evolve with Huckletree’s expansion plans and adapt to emerging technologies.
