British Embassy Athens

The British Embassy in Athens was identified by the Foreign Commonwealth Office as an asset requiring upgraded perimeter security.

Representatives from ATG Access visited site in Athens on three occasions prior to getting planning approval and were able to advise on ways of making the scheme aesthetically pleasing as well as secure, this greatly helped the embassy receive planning approval.

ATG designed a layout which maximised available standoff from the embassy, and incorporated two dual bollard SP1000 automatic bollard systems which control vehicle access to the Embassy.

Shallow Mount Static bollards were used where appropriate to overcome services and damage to trees in the area.

Aesthetic Sleeves which provided a holistic style to the project were fitted to the bollards to finish the project.

ATG Access undertook all aspects of the project including design, civil works including street surface upgrading, and commissioning. In order to carry out a successful and satisfactory installation of the project ATG had project management on site every week of the project.

Once the order was received ATG Access created the design drawings, project managed the installation, undertaking the civil installation, electrical installation and commissioning of the system by our own engineers.
