Birmingham’s latest luxury residential development, St Martins Place, has installed SALTO smart access control to secure its 228 exquisitely designed apartments.
Developed by Seven Capital and constructed by Colmore Tang, the 17-storey building is located in the heart of the city between Broad Street and Tennant Street, minutes from the main business and professional district.
All residents benefit from access to the first-class services of the neighbouring Park Regis Hotel including an urban spa, food and beverage services and room cleaning. Other amenities a state-of-the-art gym, Wi-Fi lounge, private cinema and 24-hour concierge.
What did they need?
As a new build development, technology was an important consideration from the start of the project. Designed to appeal to the busy professional, the apartments all feature high-speed broadband and offer residents the ability to order services via an exclusive hotel app.
To compliment this, when it came to the selection of an access control solution for the property, the successful system had to be technologically advanced, future proof and simple to install, set-up and operate.
Colmore Tang Director, Harj Mattu, said, “With both medium and long term lets available, a priority was to ensure that the access control solution selected for this development was both modern and flexible to meet our requirements. It had to be easy to use for both staff and residents. It had to be simple to set up and operate. Lastly, it not only had to control access to residential apartments but also handle access to the full suite of exclusive on-site facilities.”
Working closely with SALTO’s Solution Architect Brian Milella, Technical Director Gus Dosanjh and Regional Support Manager Stacey Metcalfe, St Martins Place selected XS4 One smart handle sets connected to the KS cloud based solution for their access control needs.
This was down to two factors, SALTO’s reputation for being class leaders in advanced technology security solutions and the ability of the KS platform to enable the in-house team to balance security with accessibility, and advanced technology with affordability.
With SALTO KS, there is no need to install software or to replace a lock if a resident loses their smart key or it is stolen – the key is simply blocked and a new one issued. It has an easy-to-use and simple-to-manage access control dashboard that gets all doors online and unifies access within a single cloud solution, allowing the team at St Martins Place team to individually define who can enter which doors during which time periods if and as required.
Stacey Metcalfe, SALTO Regional Support Manger, concludes, “Having previously worked with and implemented our SVN system at their Nexus Point building, Colmore Tang chose SALTO KS for their St Martins Place development because it gives them the opportunity to quickly and easily determine who enters the property and when. If they need to make any changes to access authorizations all they need to is log in to their website portal and make the change. It is that simple and that quick!
“As world leaders in advanced wire free, wireless, cloud and mobile access control solutions, we are pleased to have been selected once again by Colmore Tang to help secure this exclusive new residential development in the heart of Birmingham.”
