Love Lane

In 2016, Opem was commissioned by EPAM, a prominent property asset management company, to enhance the security measures of 1 Love Lane, a boutique office building in London.



EPAM required a comprehensive security solution that included the installation of Maxxess access control systems, CCTV, and ongoing maintenance to ensure long-term effectiveness and reliability.


1 Love Lane is a boutique office building offering 8,671 sq ft of premium office space across the ground floor and five upper floors. The building underwent a comprehensive refurbishment in 2016, aimed at modernising its facilities and maximising its appeal to potential tenants. The refurbishment project included creating a high-quality reception area and efficient office floors.

EPAM spearheaded the enhancement of the building’s facilities. Once vacant possession was achieved, EPAM focused on improving the building’s security infrastructure. They tasked Opem with designing, installing, and maintaining advanced security systems to ensure the safety and security of the building’s future occupants.


Design and Installation of Security Systems: Opem was responsible for creating a comprehensive security plan tailored to the needs of 1 Love Lane. 

This included:

  • Maxxess Access Control Solutions: Installing state-of-the-art access control systems to manage and secure entry points throughout the building.
  • CCTV Installation: Implementing high-definition CCTV cameras strategically placed to provide extensive coverage and real-time monitoring of the premises.

System Optimisation and User Training: Opem ensured that the installed systems were optimised for user-friendliness and efficiency. 

This involved:

  • Customising the Maxxess access control systems to suit the specific security requirements of the building.
  • Providing training to the building management and tenants to ensure they could effectively use the new security features.

Ongoing Maintenance: Opem is committed to providing continuous maintenance for the installed systems, including:

  • Regular system checks and updates.
  • Prompt resolution of any technical issues.
  • Ensuring the security systems remained compliant with evolving security standards.


The project presented several key challenges:

  • Integration with Refurbishment: Coordinating the security installation with the ongoing refurbishment to ensure minimal disruption and seamless integration.
  • High Standards of Security: Meeting EPAM’s high standards for security to attract and retain high-quality tenants.
  • User Adaptability: Ensuring that the new systems were easy for tenants and building management to use effectively.

Opem addressed these challenges through meticulous planning, close collaboration with EPAM, and leveraging their expertise in advanced security solutions.


The installation of Maxxess access control and CCTV systems significantly enhanced the security of 1 Love Lane. The building was fully let shortly after the refurbishment was completed, with tenants attracted by the high-quality facilities and robust security measures. The enhanced security contributed to a significant increase in rental values, exceeding 100% of the purchase price.

The collaboration between Opem and EPAM on the 1 Love Lane project highlights the critical role of advanced security solutions in property management. Opem’s expertise in designing, installing, and maintaining cutting-edge security systems was instrumental in the successful refurbishment and full occupancy of this boutique office building, setting a benchmark for future projects.

We are absolutely delighted with the professional approach and successful deployment of the security systems by Opem. The seamless integration of the Maxxess access control system, CCTV, and remote monitoring has set a new standard for security within our properties. Their commitment to excellence and attention to detail have significantly enhanced the safety and security of our building. As a result, we continue to engage Opem for all our security installation and maintenance needs. We highly recommend Opem for their outstanding service and expertise.
