The facts & figures

About Skanska Property

Skanska business unit in Poland is part of the multinational Skanska construction and development company. For its High5ive commercial development at the centre of Krakow, it needed a great quality access control system to attract tenants and, ultimately, buyers for these high-spec office buildings. Skanska decided that AEOS fits the bill.

The challenge

High standards needed

Skanska Property Poland was looking for a high-quality physical access control system to help attract tenants and, ultimately, buyers to its High5ive commercial development in Krakow. This system not only had to provide a high level of security but the ability to integrate with a variety of third-party systems – and centralise them on one platform. These systems include visitor management, parking management and destination control for the lift system.


What they did

Seamless integrations achieved

Working with Nedap Poland, and Nedap partners Urkom and Umbitious, Skanska implemented AEOS access control at one of the High5ive buildings, initially. And then a further two based on the success of the first implementation. Urkom is part of Nedap’s certified channel partner network and Umbitious is a software expert experienced in AEOS integrations. As AEOS is based on open standards, the team was able to achieve all the seamless third-party integrations Skanska was looking for.

Key benefits

Security centralised on one system

  • Just one platform for managing authorisations and identifiers.
  • Streamlined traffic flow improves convenience for employees and visitors.
  • Increased security as it’s possible to control which floors people travel to.
  • Pre-registration for visitors enables a warm, professional welcome.
  • All events are captured in one place and can be easily translated into reports.
Arriving on time, every time

What they said

Filip Dykas, Skanska business unit in Poland: “It’s been a really great collaboration between Nedap, their channel partner Urkom, the software house Umbitious and us at Skanska. The fact that AEOS is based on open standards has
meant we’ve been able to achieve all the third-party integrations we were looking for. We’ve got a high-quality access control system that meets tenants’ requirements and will improve the saleability of the buildings.”
