About this Project:

It has been 29 years since Wimbledon last kicked a ball in anger at Plough Lane when they took on Crystal Palace in the top-flight. Since then it has been a long road back.

There was the controversial move to Milton Keynes and the rebranding to MK Dons, the formation of the fans-owned AFC Wimbledon 18 years ago and six promotions.

But now they have built a new stadium a few hundred yards from the original ground. That was ripped down for apartment blocks, which you can see from the upper tiers.

A museum inside the ground will be opened, where items such as Vinnie Jones’ 1988 FA Cup-winners medal and other memorabilia will be on display.

The club will even house the original Plough Lane gates.

The stadium has an initial 9,300 capacity but planning permission has been granted for that to increase to 20,000. There will be around 100 wheelchair spaces too.

BEMS Description

Linear Control Systems opted to utilise open protocol technology on this project, allowing AFC Wimbledon an easy to use graphical interface via IP or on the control panel facia touchscreen. By choosing this system for the client needs, it allowed seamless integration of the packaged Air Handling Units via a BACnet interface.

The BEMS is also utilised to monitor all site metering including Gas (Pulse), Water (Pulse) & Electric (Modbus).
