Automatic Systems Installs New Firstlane and AccessLane into Housing Association Project

Automatic Systems was asked by Aspex UK Limited to work with them on a project they had won at the head office of Riverside Group.

Riverside is a group of complementary businesses driven by a clear social purpose, with a charitable housing association at its core.

Established over 90 years ago, they have grown to become a major provider of affordable housing, care and support services in England and Scotland, with almost 56,000 homes in management. Operating at scale and across 160 local authorities, their vision is to transform the lives of the 90,000+ people they house and revitalise the neighbourhoods in which they live.

RiversideGroup approached Aspex as a result of Covid to help secure and control the access of their head quarter building.


With the help of Automatic Systems Aspex came up with a solution that fulfilled their criteria.  This included the installation of the newly launched Firstlane and AccessLane.

Work Timeframe

Having worked with Aspex on a number of previous projects Automatic Systems were the preferred supplier when the contract was won in December 2020.  Works took a week to complete as allocated in February this year.

Future Work

Automatic Systems looks forward to working with Aspex on future projects.
