Case Studies – St George's Square, Perth
At St George’s Square (225 St Georges Terrace) a Grade A commercial building constructed in 1990, a full lobby upgrade was undertaken by FDC Construction with the existing ornate timber revolving doors to both the front and rear entries replaced with sleek all glass Diamond Series revolving doors, specified by Woods Bagot.
To ensure the building could remain operational through the 16 week programme the works needed to be heavily staged with the main entry door completed in mid January and the rear garden entrance competed in mid February 2017.
The dramatic change in revolving door design is tempered by a bronze colour stainless steel cladded finish that helps the doors to seamlessly integrate with the modern Art Deco inspired finishes throughout the newly renovated lobby as well as the maintain timber archways shaping the entrance to the lift lobby.
For this lobby refurbishment the glass roof design of the Diamond Series automatic revolving door would not have been possible without record’s experience in mounting the drive system for each door to the underside of the suspended slab. With this design the builder only needed to provide a core hole at the centre of the door with an extended shaft connecting the rotating carousel above, with the drive system below.
