OneFibre was approached by Derwent to scope out and propose internet services for the renowned Morelands building on Old Street. Block C & D were in the process of being redeveloped with the aim to house multiple tenants through commercial ofﬁce and retail space. One of the key factors for Derwent was being able to bring the ofﬁce to market as being fully ﬁbre connected, ensuring tenants had access to true ﬁbre optic internet from the commencement of their lease.
Amongst OneFibre were various other providers that proposed offerings to the Landlord, however unlike OneFibre, large CapEx costs were being presented.
The initial site survey revealed a number of complexities that required OneFibre to build a bespoke ﬁbre route to a suitable “comms area” in the basement. Once the ﬁbre route had been built and equipment housed in the data cabinet, OneFibre pre-terminated each of the demises in the building with an internet access port. This allowed for any incoming tenant to have internet access within 24 hours of placing an order. No Wayleaves were required as these were all agreed during the build phase.
One tenant had a bespoke requirement due to the nature of their business which required dual 300Mb circuits to enable them to output huge data volumes to a datacentre 24/7 whilst ensuring staff had a separate circuit to operate day-to-day business activities. The reasoning behind having dual circuits was to ensure a constant ﬂow of data to their datacentre and dedicated a whole connection to maximise the volume of data synchronised each day. It also served as a resilient option if there ever was a failure onsite. OneFibre provided this as part of its service.
Morelands now has a high capacity ﬁbre service available to all of its tenants. Due to the success of the project OneFibre is being rolled out on additional Derwent buildings in London.
