Catherine House gets Standalone Presence Detectors for student accommodation refurb


Formally Zurich House, Catherine House, in Portsmouth, is now owned by The Student Housing Company and has space for 1,000 students in a mixture of studios and 'cluster' flats with shared kitchen spaces for up for 6 people.


The new set up was made to make this student hub more energy efficient whilst still being practical for the new residents.


CP Electronics' compact standalone EBDSPIR presence detectors, which can provide automatic control for lighting, heating and ventilation loads, were used in this project.


Catherine House was a £51milliion project started in 2015 and completed in August of 2017 in time for the academic year, after being left derelict for 8 years.
