Case Studies – 201 Kent Street, Sydney
The much anticipated foyer refurbishment of Investa’s 201 Kent Street commercial office building, designed by Architectus, was completed in November 2017 and features automatic revolving, sliding and swing door operators by record Automatic Doors.
Having installed the two existing Fullview revolving doors during a previous upgrade in 1998, record was excited to work with Architectus on the design of the new revolving door entrance with a new custom circular lighting feature integrated into the ceiling of the door canopy. Never before undertaken in a revolving door in Australia, the internal ceiling support structure of the revolving door needed to be modified by record’s Sydney tradesman to support the LED light housing, supplied by Prolicht.
The cladding finishes to the 4200mm diameter x 3500mm high revolving door was also customised with the canopy fascia, roof and door framing clad in Granex bead blasted stainless steel, supplied by Rimex, while the ceiling panels are aluminium powdercoated in a Interpon D2015 bronze pearl matt finish.
In addition to the revolving door, record also provided a C 127 infloor mounted automatic swing door operator and two STA 20 automatic sliding door operator to other entrances to the lobby, working with the façade contractor Jamesco, who provided the impressive frameless glass façade and portal framing.
