Vine Court, a BREEAM excellent project on Chatham Street, forms part of the University of
Liverpool’s extensive sustainable accommodation programme. Comprising shops, a 250-seat restaurant and 749 en-suite bedrooms, the Vine Court residences benefit from rainwater harvesting, solar thermal
water heating and low energy lighting and heating systems. As a new build establishment, high quality security incorporating smart technology was specified to enable a wire-free deployment, without
the need to modify the doors.

Aperio™ appealed because of its innovative design and ability to work as an integral part of
the wider AGS security solution – which can encompass hard wired, wireless and fire free access
control. In phase one, around 1.000 Aperio™ Escutcheons with Mifare RFID technology have been
installed as it looks like any other door handle and hence does not conflict with the aesthetics
of the brand new building.
