Urmet is providing its IPervoice video entry and access control solution to London City Island, a project in Docklands being dubbed ‘Mini Manhattan.’ As well as accommodation, the 12-acre redeveloped site will feature offices, arts organisations, a gallery and retail outlets. 

In total there will be 1,700 apartments across ten buildings, each featuring brickwork in a striking single colour. The island is on a loop of the River Lea and is being transformed into a glass-and-steel waterside district in keeping with the area’s maritime heritage. 

The current phase of this ten-year project will see Urmet door entry equipment installed in 417 homes by London-based security systems integrator Heston Apex Europe. The security firm will be responsible for installing Urmet’s recently launched Elekta INOX brushed stainless steel flush-mounted door entry panels.
