Oregon Park incorporates open spaces which will improve the current street scape. This space will include areas of hard landscaping complemented by modern planting, seating and lighting and will feature contemporary works of art. The impact of the building and its effect on the environment has been significantly mitigated by design and construction with the goal of achieving a BREEAM “Excellent” rating. This will be achieved by enhancement of all aspects of the building design, including the installation of highly efficient heating and cooling systems using a ground sourced heat pump system.
Access control systems utilize proximity readers and are installed at all vehicular and pedestrian entry and exit points. Access control is HID – RP40 compliant.
The design intent for the general office space is to achieve a noise criteria of NR 38.
The building has a BREEAM target certification rating of “Excellent”
The external elevations comprise top-quality and highly-efficient curtain and modular walling. The curtain walling is double-glazed with dual seal construction with the outer pane manufactured to repel solar gains.
BUILDING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
A fully automated intelligent Building Management System will switch, control and monitor the building’s environmental services and associated back-up systems. The BMS is routed to a front end PC located in the building management suite. Individual tenants can request specific levels of temperature, fresh air, and lighting control; the system will fully monitor the status and performance of oil M&E plant and essential services.
A CCTV system will meet the security requirements of the overall development. Tenants are responsible for the security of their own premises. The main building system is expandable and is capable of on-site and off-site management.
Metal and mineral fiber suspended ceiling systems, nominal 600 x 600 and 1200 x 300 mm micro perforated tiles laid flush into semi-recessed regular frame section grid. Metal panels with PPC finish and acoustic infill.
HEATING / COOLING
Four-pipe fan coil units are provided in all general office areas. Allowance will be made for 10% of the lettable floor area to be meeting rooms. All fan coil systems and controls to office areas are laid out for maximum flexibility and are capable of future adaptation by tenants. All tenant shafts are invididually metered and capped for the future tenant’s use. 4×10 kW per floor are provided for individual tenant IT cooling systems
DATA TELECOMM / DATA WIRING FACILITIES,etc
Basement Communication Room is provided with dual entry available and additional entry for further service providers with local infrastructure.

FUTURE TENANT FACILITIES
Water and drainage connections are provided in four locations at each floor level to facilitate tenant’s tea stations.
The bank of eight lifts form part of the central core. Operated on a Destination Control System and linked to security turnstiles in the entrance. A dual purpose passenger and goods lift, serving all office floors is provided, and is accessible from the loading bay at basement level. The DCS system brings the nearest lift to the person and saves waiting time and electricity.
High efficiency LED luminaires will be used in office and parking areas to provide a very efficient, up to date lighting system. Installation design is to CIBSE LG7 to provide a high-quality environment achieving enhanced comfort use and wall washing where practical. Motion detection control is used in areas which are temporary occupied such as parking, staircases and toilets for energy savings.
Intelligent lighting, designed to assist in achieving CIBSE LG7 compliance.
