NG Bailey’s IT Services division, has been contracted to deploy a landlord ICT and IP-converged electronic security system at St. Edward Homes’ 190 Strand development.
The ICT contract, which is expected to be completed within a 12-month period, comes as part of a £13m award to NG Bailey to provide the infrastructure for mechanical, electrical and public health installation.
Work on the development, which is set in one of the capital’s most sought after locations, will commence in January 2015, when NG Bailey will implement a structured cabling solution that will form a core Power-over Ethernet IP-backbone connecting each of the development’s premium, bespoke apartments, townhouses and penthouses to a dedicated and centrally managed network.
The development’s security, also being installed by NG Bailey, will consolidate all of the development’s physical assets, including door locks, access control, intercom systems and a 24-hour IP-CCTV system onto a single, intelligent platform.
Alan Edgar, project director at St Edward, comments: “It is helpful to find an engineering firm with an IT Services division capable of delivering a future-proofed data network and IP-converged security system, as is required by this high-end development. NG Bailey is one such firm. It can operate as a single entity and manage the whole installation as a sub-component of its wider mechanical, electrical and public health project.
“By procuring in this way we are able to retain a single point of contact, which will reduce some of the management and time pressures commonly associated with a development like 190 Strand.” adds Alan.
Indi Sall, technical director, NG Bailey’s IT Services division comments: “This project is a great opportunity for us to showcase how our Engineering and IT Services divisions work together, to complete a premium, highly-specified development.
“We are a leading authority on intelligent building systems design and implementation, so we look forward to guiding St. Edward through this part of the development, while the wider mechanical, electrical and public health aspects of the development progress unhindered.”
