Waterfront Congress Centre chooses security solutions by ASSA ABLOY

The Waterfront Congress Centre is Sweden’s newest and most versatile venue for large scale meetings and events – and when choosing locks and security solutions, flexibility and convenience were top priority.

Across the water from Stockholm’s historic city hall, the Waterfront Congress Centre stands out with its modern architecture, combining office, congress and hotel facilities in one location. Work on the center has been ongoing for years, and ASSA ABLOY has been there most of the way.

That presence is obvious today, as ASSA and VingCard lock and security products have been installed across the center’s spanning facilities.

The 14,000 square meter congress center, which offers advanced supporting technology and flexibility, is fitted with an ASSA master key system, as well as an ASSA ARX access control system for perimeter protection.
Directly connected to the congress center is the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel, a 414-room first-class hotel, where every room door features a VingCard’s RFID Classic lock, as well as Elsafe in-room safes. In addition, the offices at the Waterfront have an ASSA mechanical lock system installed in the public areas.

“The solutions provided by ASSA and VingCard offer our facilities the flexibility and convenience we need to provide the best access for our guests,” says Anders Edblad, Chief Engineer for the Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre and Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel.

Johan Zettergren, who works as a technical consultant at ASSA, was involved with the project from the outset. He says:  “The customer was really looking for a company that could continue to develop new products and systems. It was also important that the system could easily be integrated and upgraded.”

Having everything on the same system also makes it easier for hotel guests and staff alike to use the congress facilities, because access can be programmed on the same card.
