Coming soon…a cutting edge new demo facility, from New Land Solutions.
As one of the UK’s leading smart tech integrators, we thrive on innovation and that moment the wow factor hits. No lifestyle enhancing smart-tech is beyond the scope of our expertise.
So when the opportunity arose to purchase one of only two existing ex-Naval barges, we obviously seized it with open arms.
Following the success of ‘The Disco Bus’, our airstream demo facility, we’ve been exploring innovative ways to achieve a larger demo facility that is commensurate with our reputation as champions of technology.
MAC1010 is a 34 metre ex Royal Navy electrical load test barge, which was converted in 2016 into a high standard floating home. Enter Luke…he saw MAC1010 as the obvious space for a height of smart technology in microcosm.
Energy sucking beast to energy harvesting beauty
The barge was originally used in the refits of nuclear boats to test main generators, up to a load of three megawatts. That’s the equivalent of three thousand electric fires!
The new demo facility will be an ironic, low energy consumption flipping of that concept. With intelligent 24v lighting, solar panels and multiple heat sources; MAC1010 will be self sufficient and sustainable.
Modeled on a three-bedroom house, MAC1010 will provide us with insights that they will use to optimise energy efficiency on our projects. It will be littered with sensors to constantly monitor and analyse the performance of the system, so we can make decisions based on the feedback, to maximise energy performance.

An Immersive Experience
MAC1010 will be replete with flagship smart technologies from industry leading suppliers. A fully integrated KNX heating system will offer automated comfort for our guests, the whole year through.
Working with high end audio trailblazers Meridian and McIntosh, one priority will be an impeccably precise, pre-eminently powerful sound system both inside and out.
In addition to three bedrooms and three bathrooms, it will feature an integrated 4K cinema room for an immersive AV experience.
Take a tour of MAC1010 before we work our magic on it, with this 3D interactive model, created using our Vision technology.
As with every New Land Solutions project, MAC1010 will tie together the most innovative solutions in one simple system.
Our dream is to see her floating on the Thames, offering Londons residents and property developers a glimpse of the simplicity, synchronicity, and seamlessness of our smart technology solutions.
