There are many phrases alluding to your home as a place of safety and sanctuary – ‘safe as houses’, ‘providing a safe house’, ‘an Englishman’s home is his castle’ are just three.
Here at Tavern Quay we believe that arriving home and shutting your front door should envelope you in a feeling of security, and we have gone the extra mile to ensure our development and each apartment is as secure as possible.
“Every purchaser of a new waterside apartment here at Tavern Quay buys into peace-of-mind as much as they do location and luxury,” says Karolina at the development. “We’ve created an environment that’s akin to a five-star hotel, where residents always feel there’s someone watching out for their property and the wider development, with a lobby that not only sets the tone of the development but also acts a barrier between the outside world and the private accommodation. We’re also mindful that our residents will lead busy lives that may take them away from their home for extended hours or even a few weeks, so the new apartments offer a specification that allows people to enjoy periods away from Tavern Quay, safe in the knowledge their home is secure.”
Our first line of defence is the on-site concierge, who is located in the development’s main lobby between 07:00 and 19:00 – extended ‘office’ hours to ensure that most residents are greeted in the morning as they leave and welcomed back by a friendly face at the end of the day. While the convivial aspect of a manned reception is great, the security aspect is even more important. Our concierge is on alert for unwanted callers, plus they oversee access to the lifts and upper floors, check in and out tradespeople, sign for deliveries, and generally keeps tabs on the movement of residents and visitors.
On a broader basis, Tavern Quay is serviced by a monitored CCTV system, ensuring only people who have a right to enter the building gain access. The CCTV also extends to the secure underground car park, where there is additional secure cycle storage. A safety first approach also extends to each individual apartment, which is equipped as standard with colour video entry from the lobby, a personal front-door peephole and lockable windows.
“Your home should be your castle – a wonderful place to live where you can retreat, pull up the drawbridge and forget about what’s going on outside. We have designed Tavern Quay so residents enjoy peace-of-mind – whether they are at home or away.”
