7. Ashwood Gateway Accommodation

The Ashwood Chadstone Gateway Project is an exciting housing development that will provide high quality, affordable housing for people in the local and wider community, as well as contribute to the ongoing renewal of the Ashwood Chadstone area.

Constructed by St Hilliers for Housing First, (formerly Port Phillip Housing Association) the project will deliver 210 affordable rental homes as well as 72 private homes utilising six vacant sites in the Ashwood Chadstone area. The total Ashwood Chadstone Gateway Project has a project cost of $140 Million and is due for completion by the end of 2013.

Omega Security Solutions have been engaged to supply and install a complete keyless entry system for this project. Utilising the Salto Access Control System, Omega has designed a unique and strategic approach whereby residents with the use of just one credential can access their respective apartment, carpark and common entry doors. The major feature of the Salto System is the use of RFID smartcard technology and the ability to apply access control to the majority of building doors via the use of electronic locksets that require no cabling or power. This revolutionary access control system allows management to easily control the access of all tenants in an efficient and cost effective manner. This eliminates the costly exercise of re-keying doors when a key is lost or stolen; and access to various areas within the building can be easily granted or removed via the management software. Another key feature is the ability grant access on various doors or areas for certain times of the day or night for eg. Communal Laundries, Terrace Balconies, Multi Function Spaces etc. 

For an organisation like Housing First who manage hundreds of tenants across multiple sites, all of the limitations and expenses previously endured under a mechanical key system are now a thing of the past. These frustrations have been replaced by the Salto system which is secure, cost effective, extremely flexible, and most of all both user and management friendly.  The Ashwood Gateway project is just one example of what Omega Security Solutions and Salto can provide – to discover how we design a similar solution your organisation, please visit Solutions by Expertise / Access Control / Salto here.
