Highcross is a property fund management company specialising in commercial property investment and development across the UK. The property portfolio exceeds 15 million sq
ft of office and industrial premises with a combined potential value of £3 billion.
One of their most recent developments is 1000 Lakeside, based on the South Coast of England.
Lakeside North Harbour is an established office campus covering an area of 101 acres comprising of over 600,000 sq ft of quality office accommodation. With increasing demand for flexible and managed office space with minimum carbon footprint, 1000 Lakeside offers potential business users high specification office space with extensive landscaping making it one of the South’s premium business centres. 1000 Lakeside is situated in a highly prominent position adjacent to junction 12 on the M27 at the gateway to Portsmouth.
1000 Lakeside faced a common challenge whereby existing occupiers utilised specific card technology, HID iClass. The client required an access control system that can offer flexibility in technology used and a greater level of future proofing to allow it to grow as the demand from the tenants increases, for example partitioning the database to offer individual reporting and administration tools for each occupier.
From the practical installation point of view, the client required a very professional installation with very little interruption to the occupiers and the existing high finishing standards.
GuardPoint Pro system was installed to control access to several doors using HID iClass technology throughout the site. The feature packed integrated solution means that the management can easily generate reports automatically for the purpose of health and safety and also provide a simple tool to manage and restrict access to the managed office space providing the security controls required to protect the tenants.
Multi-Company, Parking Management, Visitor Management, Photo ID badge printing, Interactive graphics are only some of the options the client considered to implement as the site grows.
The main challenge for this installation was how to make the access control system blend with the smooth modern lines of the building. Much consideration had to be put into the locking hardware for the clear glass doors as the client did not want to see any cabling. Shear locks were commissioned together special reader posts to comply with DDA regulations. All wires were hidden so that the install was aesthetically pleasing.
There was no need to re-issue cards as the existing cards would work on new system. This saved time and money. The GuardPoint Pro software is upgradable so that in the future different features can be added such as parking control & lift control without changing the system. The software is also expandable so that as the site expands the access control system can easily evolve.
