Safe and Secure Properties That Don’t Limit Clients
PROJECT: R2 Companies and MTG overcome current event challenges to standardize security solutions.

R2 Companies is an emerging real estate firm based in Chicago who provides one-of-a-kind spaces for their clients. They selected MTG as a partner to standardize security across their newly acquired properties in the Twin Cities market. MTG provided R2 with an enterprise-level system standardized on exacqVision video surveillance and Dormakaba-KeyScan access control systems.

Recent civil unrest in the area made security and safety imperative. Yet it was also important for clients to be able to move about freely between and within buildings. Thus, MTG’s plan for R2 properties involved placing badge access readers in common, predictable locations, which simplified the security process for people as they became accustomed to it.

Another way that MTG addressed the security issue is through cloud-based access control and video surveillance. With the touch of a button, authorized individuals can shut off building access to any and all sites.

MTG also navigated the current supply chain environment. Lead times for equipment were long, but the team managed the timeline to account for these delays and communicated with the client to ensure there were no gaps in security.

“Our tenants need safe and secure working environments, but also need their workplace to be productive and inviting,” said Ryder Vold, Property Manager at R2. “MTG helped us achieve both with their innovative technology and collaborative approach.”
