Case Studies – Morris Moor
The $100 million transformation of Moorabbin’s Philip Morris manufacturing site into new premium office spaces, modern eateries and contemporary amenities involved the re-purposing of eight existing buildings, across a six hectare site. In recognition of its location and past significance to the local community, it was named “Morris Moor”.
Designed by Genton Architecture and built by BMF Construction, the main lobby entrance to the most prominent the commercial office building in the development at 1 Cochranes Road features two pairs of aluminium framed pivot doors, fully automated via record C 127 concealed floor mounted swing door operators, syncronised to work together upon a signal from ceiling mounted radar activation sensors, during normal business hours.
For protection of the operator, stainless steel floor plates, in a custom black powdercoat finish were fitted. For door wing protection, active infrared presence sensors mounted to the top rail on both sides of each door.
