About the Project

Developed by IPE Developments & Bluecroft, Botanical Lofts is a residential development in the heart of London, that has been designed & built in accordance with Secured by Design guidelines.

Located on Jubilee Street, in Stepney, just a 13 minute cycle ride from the City of London & a 2 minute tube ride from London Liverpool Street, Botanical Lofts is delivering a collection of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom ‘loft-style’ apartments to the Whitechapel area.

Installed by first time Urmet Installer National Security Systems, Botanical Lofts has been designed & built in accordance with Secured by Design guidelines, and is using Urmet for both the Door Entry & the Access Control on site.

Botanical Lofts is using both our 2 wire Door Entry System ‘2Voice’, and our IP Access Control system ‘IPassan’ on site, which are seamlessly integrated through our 2Smart Video Door Entry Panel (also being used on site), which has achieved UL293 certification, the highest level of Secured by Design accreditation.

The development is also using our Self-Resetting Emergency Exit Systems, which are also Secured by Design accredited, and are recommended for residential developments with more than 25 apartments.

Botanical Lofts is also using Urmet for both visitor & resident lift destination control (a Secured by Design guideline), and interestingly is putting our 2Smart Door Entry Panels directly in the lift car to achieve this.

We’ve noticed a few residential developments doing this recently, as it’s a good way to both reduce cost, whilst still complying with Secured by Design guidelines.
