Videx wins University of Leeds Residential Development Contract
Videx was chosen to provide an audio door entry system, complete with a concierge facility, to a significant new residential development for students attending the University of Leeds.
The large-scale development consists of 525 Bedrooms across four main blocks and it was vital that each apartment had secure door entry as the safety of the students was paramount.
Steve Natton, Projects Manager at Videx, said:
“Installing a secure but user friendly door entry system presented a number of challenges both from a logistical and operational point of view. The development required a total of 15 digital style entrance panels and 525 audio phones along with a desktop concierge phone located in the reception area which had to have full communication to each student bedroom.”
“Using our leading VX2200 system, we worked closely with out installation partner and offered a high level of support that ensured the project ran smoothly across each stage – specification, design and commissioning. All of the client’s requirements were met and their objectives achieved with the new door entry installation.”
