New Inn Broadway


New Inn Broadway

Located on the surviving remains of London’s first purpose-built theatre, New Inn Broadway is a new V&A museum exhibition and office building in Shoreditch. ‘The Theatre’ – which was the forerunner to ‘The Globe’- was originally built in 1576 and was home to some of William Shakespeare’s early plays. The five-storey building has been developed to celebrate the unique history of the site.

New Inn Broadway is a location steeped in history. With its origins stretching back to Elizabethan times, and now playing host to the V&A and a commercial office space there was a lot to consider during the specification process.

This dual purpose presented specific access concerns for the client, wanting to easily control who can move between the museum and office space, while also keeping everything secure. Allgood’s team of security and access control consultants worked with the client and electrical consultants to create a system design that met these requirements. This detailed technical planning was followed by careful execution and installation, using the latest in security and access control equipment.

The final solution involved a state-of-the-art system that allows differing levels of access across the separate areas of the multi-use venue. This work was complemented with a coordinated ironmongery package including a complete Modric Doc M installation.
Allgood Secure was specified by mechanical and electrical consultants Waterman Group to collaborate on system design, and supply and fit access control, an audio visual intercom system, CCTV intruder detection, and an alarm system.

As this was a multi-use development comprising the V&A museum as well as commercial office space, it was imperative that the building had a network access control system to manage access and maintain security as well as allow the end user to change access rights easily.
Stainless steel entrance panels were specified at the main entrance doors and at the stairwells of each lettable office space floor, with a one-way video system that calls the internal handsfree monitors.

A HD CCTV system was selected to allow remote monitoring from a different site, and a mixture of bullet and dome cameras were installed and finished in a bespoke RAL finish to complement the contemporary ceiling.
Allgood Secure managed the installation of an intruder alarm system which features high-end technology offering peace of mind for staff.

As well as a high-tech security system, Allgood’s Modric washroom package was specified by Gallus Studio architects, particularly its Doc M package.

Francesco Canossa, of The Box Office, London, commented:

“The range of products supplied by Allgood Secure met our needs exactly. They have helped create the balance we needed as a multi-use venue, matching the desired aesthetic with functionality and reliability.

“They worked closely with us from the outset to ensure the products were delivered to our exacting standards, and the ongoing support from the team will prove valuable as the building’s tenants and residents move in.”

Andrew Jobson, Technical Director, Allgood Secure commented:

“New Inn Broadway’s high-quality specification and modern interior required an aesthetically pleasing security system, that could also accommodate all the client’s specific requirements and be easy for the end user to operate. Products were chosen that complemented the architectural vision of the project, which included matching colour schemes and materials.

Allgood Secure worked with the architect and security consultant throughout the whole building process, from the design which involved producing a series of initial CAD drawings, to advice and guidance during the review meeting, and the installation of the products.”
