Delivering luxury student accommodation

Built by luxury student accommodation specialist IconInc, part of Leeds-based property group Parklane, The Glassworks consists of 150 luxury apartments, alongside a huge choice of facilities, including a gym, a sauna and steam room and a private cinema. The Glassworks’ site, based in the heart of Leeds, had been derelict for 15 years therefore a full regeneration was required to give the site a new lease of life and bring it up the brand’s exacting standards.

The Dynamic solution

Dynamic Networks has worked on a wide variety of projects providing every level of automation solution, from single point access control to building-wide IP CCTV. As such, we are able to provide a single point of contact for all of our services. IconInc were already familiar with our friendly team after we worked together in 2015 on luxury student accommodation, The Edge, again in Leeds. We were able to give IconInc peace of mind that the work completed was to a high standard and exactly what was required.
 
To bring The Glassworks to life, we worked to not only make sure the project benefited from the latest technology but that it would also integrate and work together. Every apartment at The Glassworks comes complete with a Samsung smart HD TV, supplied and installed by us and complemented by an Integrated Reception System (IRS) to extend the products available by delivering a full range of TV and radio services.
 
Next, structured Category 6 cabling was installed throughout the development. This type of cabling is capable of supporting data transfer rates of up to 1Gbps at a maximum bandwidth of 250MHz.
 
Finally, a Comelit intercom system was created with SIP license integrated into the analogue telephone system, to allow for intercom calls over IP.

The benefits

The Glassworks officially opened in December 2017, with residents enjoying an unparalleled level of luxury, superior quality facilities and stunning interior design. Featuring luxury elements not usually found in standard student accommodation projects, such as a cinema, gym and a games room, The Glassworks takes student living to a whole new level and IconInc is already looking the start of its next project.
