PONTOON REACH DEVELOPMENT PROJECT
DOCKLANDS EAST LONDON
- Start: Sept 2018
- Duration: 3 Years
Pontoon Reach is an exciting new development from Redrow and Peabody, located in the up and coming Royal Docks area of the London Borough of Newham in East London. The scheme will deliver 295 homes, comprising a mix of studios, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments. The £15 million joint venture is therefore part of a long-term commitment to deliver much needed new homes for Londoners in key regeneration areas across the capital.
Redrow Homes were looking for a new security solutions provider who would deliver on their promise to secure their site during the course of the two-year project. The project management team needed a robust one-stop-shop security solution to protect their premises from theft, vandalism, fires, gas leaks and floods out of hours. They also needed a system to control, track, monitor and restrict access to and from the site in hours.
After a thorough vetting process, we were selected as the provider of choice to design and deploy a tailored security solution to meet the security and safety needs of the project. A total of 16 remotely monitored ultra-low-low-light outdoor network-enabled cameras and long range motion sensitive passive infrared sensors were deployed along with a two-point manned access control system to secure the site perimeter in and out of working hours.
Our monthly subscription-based pricing model will save Redrow up to 80% in overall security costs. The video surveillance and access control systems are also fully supported by a professional 24/7 control room which can quickly react to any security or safety threats in the day or night. We also installed a local camera monitoring system to be used by the gateman to monitor the entry and exit of staff, visitors and deliveries during the day.
