VITA Student Accommodation at Strawberry Place in Newcastle is a brand new development consisting of 271 apartments and is located within a close proximity to Newcastle Universities Business School. VITA Student Accommodation offers students a high quality, dynamic and contemporary living environment. ACEDA were approached to develop and install a TV Distribution, Network Cabling, CCTV and Access Control solution that met the connectivity and security requirements of the new, prestigious accommodation facility. Each solution needed to be adaptable to student requirements and future proof.
ACEDA drew upon various skill sets within the business to provide a state of the art TV distribution, Network Cabling and IP CCTV system. Starting with the initial design evolvement and selecting key manufacturers, ACEDA worked with key partners throughout the process to successfully deliver each element of the solution. To provide each student with an interactive TV experience, ACEDA installed a CAI Approved system compromising of an amplified head end antenna installed on the roof of the building which then distributed signals to TV outlets within each apartment. TV Outlets were installed on all 8 floors of the buildings for maximum user functionality. ACEDA installed in excess of 1,000 Category 6 UTP outlets across 8 floors within the Student Accommodation facility to meet vital infrastructure requirements such as broadband and Wi-Fi connectivity. Additionally, ACEDA provided communications cabinets and fibre optic cabling to provide a full voice and data backbone.
Student safety and security is a key feature of VITA Student Accommodation facilities. ACEDA provided a state of the art HikVision IP CCTV system to monitor activity in and around the building. Each camera has a range of features including 4 mega pixels, lens adjustment, dual video streaming capabilities and IP66 rated housing to protect cameras against all weather conditions. The IP CCTV can be accessed remotely from anywhere in the world and can be controlled and monitored centrally.
ACEDA provided an integrated solution that met the requirements and vision of VITA Student Accommodation. Each solution provided was adaptable to student needs and scalable for any future growth requirements. ACEDA’s Commercial Director, Paul Warnes said “over a number of years, ACEDA have gained a wealth of experience within the Student Accommodation sector and have recognised key requirements of students to provide a platform for their ongoing learning and development. Timescales for the VITA Student Accommodation project were stringent, however the team at ACEDA were able to successfully deliver a number of disciplines on time.”
