Coca-Cola Enterprises

Design and delivery of physical security systems for the new £17m European headquarters of Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) in Uxbridge, West London.



London, UK


The initial remit was to conduct a threat and vulnerability assessment for CCE which CHQ communicated to a broad range of stakeholders. Civils work involved a replacement of the façade of this town centre building which is an integral part of a train and bus transport hub.

The project illustrates CHQ’s ability to work closely with architects who were designing a ‘back-to-frame’ refurbishment.


  • Unification of previously disparate security systems into convergent solution managed to a common purpose
  • Effective communication for disseminating standardised security practice company-wide
  • Proportionate measures after threat and vulnerability assessment answering ‘why?’ as well as ‘what?’
  • Response to exacting challenge of vehicle identification in multi-tenancy space
  • Demonstrable duty of care to staff through technology as well as HR measures
  • Confidence that security solutions meet known world-class standards in all over operations

“The operational requirement was to optimise security while avoiding oppressive procedures and intrusive equipment. The Client impressed on CHQ the need to balance the depth of security systems with the availability of the property and assets to staff and legitimate visitors in a safe, confidential environment.”

Coca Cola Enterprises Case Study


The project was handed over to the Client in January 2013 after a one-year process during which security systems were installed alongside the £17m civils works.
Enterprises House has been judged ‘Excellent’ under the BREEAM.

CCE has a vision “to provide an enjoyable and safe environment for all visitors and employees on Coca Cola Enterprises sites”.
