Set in a rural location a Surrey Farm House and exclusive Equestrian centre presented challenging conditions for electrical, fire, security and access control. The brief fell into four bespoke pieces of work:-
The main entrance requiring access control to the facility and house is approximately one kilometre away from the centre of the main house and office.
Due to the remote location the site required substantial fire and security arrangements to protect the horses, tack and farm machinery. Any breach of security system at the centre required immediate notification to the client on 24/7 basis.
haydengreen designed and installed Anti-ram raid barriers which have been positioned at the farm entrance, along with access-controlled gates which authorised personnel control using their mobile phones and visitors via the key pad entry system.
For the equestrian centre security a secure platform was designed and installed incorporating photo electric beams installed at the perimeter of the farm, this forms an invisible laser beam ‘wall’ which, if breached, triggers the center’s Intruder Alarm communicating out to notify the control center staff of any breach. Staff can then access the live camera feeds using smart phones or tablets enabling them to pinpoint the area in question, including the individual stables, meaning they can check the safety of the horses’ day and night.
For the farm house fire and security, a combined intelligent fire and security system was installed.
To achieve all of the above extensive civil works were required for the electrical and data infrastructure to and from the farm buildings, equestrian centre and main entrance.
A key part of the design was to empower the client to manage the site using mobile phone and tablet technology 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
haydengreen continue work alongside the client with their expansion plans and have incorporated a planned preventative maintenance contract and 24/7 on call support programme.
