TLJ help Sheffield’s Star shine again

​TLJ are the chosen access control provider for Sheffield’s Star Residence, a high quality PBSA development in the heart of South Yorkshire’s world famous ‘steel city’.

The ex-Sheffield Star and Telegraph newspaper building is being given a new lease of life with 271 student beds housed in a combination of self-contained studios or cluster flats with shared facilities. Despite the delay caused by the COVID19 epidemic, full completion is expected to be achieved by August 2021.

The developer, Mabec Property, knew only too well that today’s students have high expectations, particularly those from overseas. As a result, Star Residence has a high quality look and feel throughout. In addition, potentially vulnerable students need the reassurance that their accommodation is secure as it’s possible to be. For these reasons, TLJ electronic locks proved to be the natural choice.
