Leave a Comment

Local authorities have just given the green light to plans aiming to transform a former shopping site in Cardiff into a new hotel complete with food and drink units, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

Mahavir Properties is behind the scheme at 10 to 25 Queens Street, which was previously Queens West Shopping Centre.

The application includes the part-reconfiguration and alteration of the existing building, including the creation of two additional storeys and an external stairwell, to provide hotel accommodation.

A ground floor unit’s use would be changed from retail to flexible retail/food and drink, while another food and drink space would also be created.

According to a design and access statement prepared by Barton Willmore, directors at Mahavir Properties have acquired five hotels in partnership with Bespoke Hotels in the past two years.

The hotel industry has always been one of the most enthusiastic adopters of a keycard system, as a method of access control and a method of energy saving through keycard-operated light switches.

Many hotel access control systems are not centrally controlled – they essentially act exactly like a traditional lock and key. Centralised access management enables you to collect data and get a big-picture view. 

For example, you might want certain employees to only be able to get into certain areas at certain times. This could be for security reasons, or even health and safety. With a centralised system, this can be programmed into their employee profile which is linked to their card. 

Here at Access Control Wales we can provide you an access control system which gives you full control over who is allowed access through any controlled point at any time of any day. 

The system will adapt easily to your specific security environment, and the system’s modularity allows it to easily scale up as your operations grow.
