Case Studies – CBRE | St Martin's Square | London
CBRE’s is the world’s largest commercial property and real estate services adviser. Their newly refurbished London office, overlooking St Martin’s Square, is home to over 900 staff, who are located over 6 floors.
To complete the office transformation, CBRE wanted to replace their existing automatic doors at the front and rear of the building with stylish doors which were safe, reliable and ensured effortless pedestrian flow. To avoid any disruption to both staff and visitors, doors had to be installed over the Easter Bank Holiday, whilst the office was closed.
Two record K41 stainless steel four-leaf revolving doors constructed from glass to provide a modern, minimalistic look were installed. Complete with built in safety features activated by infrared detectors, the revolving doors have been programmed to operate once a door leaf is manually pushed. This not only allows all staff and visitors to pass through the turnstiles safely and easily before they rotate back to a standstill but provides energy savings as the doors are only activated when used and not by passers-by on the busy road and square outside.
A stainless steel swing door complete with a record DFA 127 operator has also been installed next to revolving door at the main entrance to provide a wider opening for disabled access and deliveries of large, bulky items to the premises. This compact, elegant operator, which is operated by an access control system, is almost silent in operation and complements the overall look of the reception area.
Paul Charman, Operations Manager commented: "the revolving doors look impressive and add the finishing touch to the office, whilst helping minimise the level of noise and draft entering the building from outside. Despite extremely tight deadlines, record installed all doors on time, due to excellent planning and co-ordination".
