World Port Center in Rotterdam selects security management system from TKH Security
It is one of the distinctive sky-high office towers in Rotterdam: the World Port Center (WPC). The building saw its surroundings change from an old, dilapidated port area into an ultramodern and multifunctional district in just under twenty years. Recently, an inviting entrance was created for all tenants and visitors in the prestigious building, with a 5-star security management system.
World Port Center
Any company can establish itself in the World Port Center (WPC), a building with international allure. The 124-metre office tower has been regarded as one of the most prestigious buildings in Rotterdam, for almost twenty years. The building’s architect is Sir Norman Foster, a British architect with a preference for open and light buildings. With a variety of tenants based in the building, a focus on hospitality along with the building’s security and safety are imperative.
Security and safety
Taking WPC’s wishes under consideration, TKH Security offered a security management system, called iProtect, to which all underlying systems could be connected. Every tenant has the option to set up the system separately for their specific needs, whereby the structure of the system meets the strictest security requirements of the government and is fully GDPR proof.
The separation between the generally accessible areas and the offices in the WPC is realized by means of high-tech speed lanes on the ground floor. Central access is provided by means of facial recognition, smartphone or an access pass, depending on the choice of the tenants. Users and guests can request access rights and plan their visits via the web portal. Upon arrival, guests can then submit an access request themselves via a self-service terminal or they can contact one of the hosts or ladies.
Several Siqura surveillance cameras have been installed at the entrance gates in the main hall. These are monitored via an integrated video surveillance system, called VDG Sense. Access and storage of images takes place at the user level in accordance with privacy guidelines.
A Commend-branded SIP intercom system is used to gain access to the various secured locations within the property. This system allows visitors to communicate with security from the entrance to the various secured areas, such as the bicycle shed, the supplier entrance and the waste container area.
