Managed Laundries for Manchester Students
Manchester is a vibrant and modern city, and with so many competing independent student halls, Wilmslow Park Student Accommodation had to make sure they stood out from the crowd in every aspect of their design. As part of their offering, they wanted to provide launderette facilities that were easy to use, easy to maintain, could be used 24/7 and were cashless in operation
The challenge was to turn a small space in a student halls of residence into a fully managed launderette that could cater for the washing needs of 1000 students
We created a launderette consisting of 32 machines, 16 Primus P7 Washers and 16 Primus DAM9 Dryers. These machines stack, providing twice the laundry volume on half the footprint therefore easily catering for the high number of student residents. We also installed our Smartcard technology with integral Laundrywatch online system, giving Wilmslow Park a safe, secure and smart environment for their residents to wash their laundry.
"We wanted reliable and easy to use equipment with fast, responsive maintenance support, and we love the online payment system! The Laundrywatch site in particular is great for us, as often students have a ten minute walk across campus so they can check online for availability, so they don't have to waste valuable study time waiting in the launderette"
