George Sell George Sell Uploaded 06 July 2016


UK: Starwood Capital Group has appointed QDOS Communications as the IT and telecommunications supplier and consultant at its London extended stay properties.

The properties, formerly part of the Think Apartments portfolio, are located in Long Lane, SE1  (87 apartments) Bermondsey Street, SE1 (101 apartments), and Warwick Road, SW5 (307 apartments)

The three properties, built in 2008, are undergoing a high-specification redevelopment. A comprehensive technology refresh exercise is underway that has seen QDOS design " futureproof ICT infrastructure, and arrange manufacturer pricing support under a competitive framework pricing structure that includes:

    BT Installation Network Services - SIP Internet Telephone Lines and 200/1000 Leased Line   & 100mb Backup
    Mitel MiVoice Telephone System with Voice over WIFI Phones
    Hotel IT Local Area Network
    IT Infrastructure including Hardware & Software
    Oracle Property Management System
    Micros Simphony EPOS Software & Terminals
    Samsung SMART TV Solution
    Ruckus WIFI Internet
    Background Music
    Cellular Repeater
    Access Control System
    CCTV and Cabling
    Audio Visual and Cabling

Simon Catterick, managing director of QDOS said: "We are proud to have been chosen by Starwood Capital, one of the world's leading property investment firms, for this exciting project. We've no doubt these new extended-stay hotels will bring a unique style to these increasingly popular areas within the capital. Recognising that guests may be staying for much longer than a single night, the in-room technology must offer a home-from-home experience, or better. And the back-office systems must meet the current demands of busy extended-stay hotels, with a flexible future upgrade path. That has all been taken into account with the Starwood Capital extended-stay hotels, so as to develop systems that meet the general & specific hotel ICT requirements in the short, medium and longer term."

The project is scheduled for completion late 2016/early 2017.
