Interphone delivers advanced security solution for Sutton Point Development

Interphone, the security systems and building technology integrator, has completed an advanced project for Ardmore Construction at the high-profile Sutton Point development, a vibrant new community at the heart of the London Borough of Sutton. The company was appointed to design and install the integrated security systems, which includes fibre infrastructure, BPT door entry, PAC access control, IP-networked CCTV and an IRS communal aerial system with SKY Q. The installation has been recognised by the UK Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) with Interphone nominated as a 2019 finalist in the Outstanding Security Installer category.

“Through the effort and commitment of our team the project was successfully completed on-time, within budget, and to the highest possible standards notwithstanding design changes in the building along the way, which required modification to our own design and approach to aspects of the installation,” explained Albert Dwek, Sales Manager at Interphone Limited.

In particular, the Interphone project team took the decision to move to fibre infrastructure to improve performance and ensure it could deliver a high-specification security system. As a result, the company created a fibre backbone network, which allows CCTV images to be viewed in true 1080p/4k without compromising any other components of the system.

Interphone worked closely with services engineers QuinnRoss Consultants Limited throughout the project. Michael Keenleyside, Electrical Engineer at Quinn Ross commented: “We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver the best possible service and solution for each of our clients, so it is essential to have highly responsive working relationships in place with key technology partners. Interphone was flexible and adaptive throughout the design and installation phases of the development, which ensure that any changes to system requirements were handled quickly and efficiently. Their team’s knowledge, understanding and commitment was essential to the success of the project.”

The sophisticated CCTV solution incorporates a site-wide, IP-networked camera system and full-perimeter PTZ (Pan Tilt and zoom) camera system from HIKvision. The full-perimeter system runs in real-time over three towers, three remote stations and two virtual concierge points with interlock ability. The external PTZ camera images, recorded onsite, are also shared with the local police. This means the management company can keep the site secure for its residents, while allowing the police to protect the area in and around the development against crime.

The PAC access control system enables all management tasks related to the tenants and staff to be administered from the central computer as and when required, ensuring the highest level of security around the site and added peace of mind. Meanwhile, BPT’s XIP door entry system offers significantly greater compression, providing the clearest and highest quality AV currently available, even with the significant background noise. The added PCS concierge facility also has improved switchboard software performance, delivering full control of building communications at two desks, so the system will never be engaged and never miss a visitor call.

“The primary focus when designing this project was the delivery of a system that could expand to meet changing requirements. As a result, we have implemented a system that not only uses the most up-to-date technology, but by its design, has been future proofed with the ability to grow. Therefore, the developer can meet all its internal requirements and ensure high levels of security for residents, visitors and members of the public,” commented Dwek.

David Dobouny, Operations Director at Interphone Limited added: “We are committed to the highest levels of service delivery. This project was selected to demonstrate our technical capabilities covering access control and CCTV systems for our NSI Gold accreditation. We achieved a grade A rating, with zero faults and no negative comments regarding on-and off-site documentation, design and installation. This is a fantastic achievement for everyone involved, especially considering the size of the project.

Sutton Point is a large-scale mixed-use scheme located close to the town centre. The high-profile development included the full demolition of an existing tower, and the design and construction of 332 one-and two-bedroom apartments, prime three-bedroom penthouses, 21,000 square feet of retail space, 18,000 square feet of office space and an 80-bedroom hotel.
