SALTO selected to provide access control for Cornell Quarter development
The continual growth of the UK’s student accommodation sector has seen SALTO chosen to secure Teeside University’s new Cornell Quarter development which is planned to open to students in October.
Part of the University’s campus master plan which will see £300 million invested in the campus up to 2026, the £21.4 million Cornell Quarter is a new 300-bedroom residential complex arranged across 48 cluster apartments. Each of these comes complete with communal facilities and a proportion of rooms are designed for students with special mobility needs.
Wates Construction was appointed to build the new development and went with SALTO for its great product range and market leading reputation in the higher education sector. SALTO has completed installation of 350 doors in Cornell Quarter with XS4 One handle sets. Smart, secure, innovative and easy to install, the XS4 electronic escutcheon needs no hard wiring and provides a totally wire-free networked electronic locking solution with a great range of features.
Jack Cowburn, Account Manager at SALTO says “Good security for student accommodation is paramount. So having SALTO access control installed as one of the security measures at the university will help them maintain a safe, secure environment for students staff and the university community alike.”
