Best Multiple Scheme for a Property Developer
Winner: Grahams for The Paladio
The technology that Grahams has installed has added value to the properties
The brief was for each flat to be “all singing and dancing” as far as technology was concerned, with each flat being identical in technological capabilities, but slightly different in layout. The intention was to ensure that each of the individual flats had the edge over other similar properties in the area.
With the properties being sold off plan, installing the correct infrastructure for the future was the key requirement for Grahams. This included wiring for data, TV with fibre satellite system, multi-room audio including on-wall touch panels, internal security with panic buttons and HVAC. All apartments meet and exceed the CEDIA Recommended Wiring Guidelines which, has helped Grahams enormously with upgrading apartments once they were sold.
Security and access control were paramount, so Grahams gave careful consideration to the type of door entry system, to ensure this could be easily integrated. In the end a BPT XIP system was chosen.
A Lutron HomeWorks QS system was installed in the penthouse flat to offer full control of the lighting within the flat, including control of blinds and the lighting on the 270 degree terrace. In the show flat, the Lutron keypads are programmed with simple functionality allowing the estate agents to quickly and easily show off the apartments.
Because of the high level and correct balance of technology deployed by Grahams, this has allowed these beautiful apartments to achieve maximum market values for the developer.
