University of Kent
From a university started with some 500 students and 150 staff on a greenfield (and rather muddy) site, the University of Kent has grown today into an institution of over 19,000 students and over 3,000 staff. Consistent top 20 positions in major league tables and two Queen’s Anniversary Prizes reinforce its enviable reputation for the quality and distinctiveness of its academic activities and locations.
The student accommodation is provided by UPP who are the leading UK provider of on campus student accommodation and are working in partnership with the University of Kent to deliver the highest standards of service to their customers. They aim to create a safe secure environment where students can feel at home.
Turing College is the University of Kent’s sixth college. Named in honour of the mathematician and codebreaker Alan Turing, the college’s residential accommodations are divided into “Turing Houses” and “Turing Flats”. The dining area, “Hut 8”, is named after Turing’s section at Bletchley Park.
Students were having difficulties operating the existing mechanisms properly due to technical issues with the gearing and we were asked to source a replacement model, strip out the existing products and replace them with the new ones. Through our experience of carrying out similar works elsewhere we were able to do this quickly and efficiently with little disturbance to the students in residence.
