Oaklands Rise, London
Oaklands Rise is a pioneering new mixed-use, housing-led development that will kick start London’s biggest regeneration since the 2012 Olympics.
The new scheme will provide 605 homes through mixed tenure comprising 363 homes for PRS, 136 homes for Shared Ownership, 45 homes for Affordable Rent, 61 homes for Social Rent and 3,500 sq. ft of office and commercial space at ground level to provide for small local businesses.
Stretching across 650 hectares, the wider development is on target to be the UK’s most connected space, with a planned green grid of secondary routes connecting old and new neighbourhoods.
L&P Technology helped develop a package in-line with L&P Engineering consisting of Incoming Services, Resilient Converged Network, Comms Room spatial planning & design, Comms Riser spatial planning & design, Electronic security and FIRS.
One of the challenges was that the technology cabling contractor changed halfway through the project leading to coordination issues later in the build. The other main challenge was the staggered release of the blocks by the builder in line with their programme and ensuring that all services for the opened blocks were operational and functioning optimally.
A converged network system (CNS) was adopted so all building systems (VLANs) were able to operate on a resilient single, open network. All blocks were serviced via a single large MTR enabling future expansion of any further systems and associated equipment.
