CDS Win Park View Student Village Contract

Published 17/07/2017 15:01

CDS Security & Fire are delighted to have secured the Access Control, IP Intercoms and Emergency Voice Communication & Fire Refuge Systems as works commence on a £75m scheme to create new student village for Newcastle University.


Park View Student Village will provide almost 1,300 en-suite bedrooms for future students along with its own energy centre.


Our Security & Fire works include installing and commissioning Salto IP Access Control, 2N Helios IP Intercoms as well as the Vox-Ignis Emergency Voice Communication and Disabled Refuge Systems to a 1,300 beds scheme set over 6 Blocks within the student village which is set to open September 2018.


The Salto Access Control System boasts cutting-edge access control technology tailored to the needs of Newcastle University.


The 2N Helios IP Verso Intercom will provide intercom assistance at 13 entrances allowing visitors to communicate with the main reception, security office and over x180 IP Intercom handsets throughout the Student Village.


Disabled Refuge Systems are required by the Equalities Act (DDA) and requires all disabled people have equal right to evacuation during an emergency in the same way they have access. The Vox-Ignis EVCS (Emergency Voice Communication Systems) we are installing combines Disabled Refuge and Assistance Call on one single network.


Interestingly as part of the redevelopment project, Newcastle University worked with charities to donate 6,500 out of the 10,000 items of furniture from the existing site.
