Case Studies – Workplace6, Pyrmont
Designed by Nettleton Tribe and constructed by Buildcorp, Workplace6 is a six storey commercial office building located on the Harbour foreshore in the inner Sydney suburb of Pyrmont. In 2008 it was the first office development in NSW to achieve a 6 Star Green Star ratings for Design and As Built.
After 9 years of operation from the existing revolving door entrance, the building owners, GPT Group, engaged record Automatic Doors to undertake a comprehensive door upgrade that would minimise disruption to the surrounding flooring, glazing and cladding finishes, whilst providing a more reliable entrance system supported by record’s industry leading revolving door experience and service support.
The most cost effective solution was to maintain the existing canopy and sidewall structure, with record’s team of local tradesman modifying the internal canopy framework to accept our Fullview Series drive system. The rotating carousel was upgraded with record’s frameless glass centre design with a new electronic control system, which was custom designed in record’s Sydney factory, to accept a combination of new record safety sensors, while still utilising some of the doors existing infrared and contact sensors
After completing in works in under 6 weeks from receipt of a purchase order the building owners effectively have a new revolving door entrance, with a new door warranty, at a much cheaper price than a complete new revolving door.
