Context

Situated in the heart of Birmingham’s commercial quarter, the Colmore Building has undergone a £3.5m enhancement project and now offers 310,000 sq ft of highly specified office space.

Redeveloped by AshbyCapital, working with office design and fitout specialists, Oktra (www.oktra.co.uk), the Colmore Building offers the best amenities of any office space in Birmingham. Occupiers not only enjoy an expansive gym with luxury changing facilities but also a café, doctor’s surgery, concierge services, parking for 100 bikes and even beauty treatment rooms. The double-height reception offers an unrivalled welcome, with a striking feature leather wall that combines with innovative artwork to make a lasting impression.

A full glass, manual revolving door, manufactured and installed by TORMAX, delivers elegant and efficient access into tenanted office space. Adjacent to this, two TORMAX automatic swing doors have been installed either side of an existing revolving door, creating a comprehensive entrance into the spacious main reception.

The manual revolving door creates a contemporary frontage commensurate with any high-end office facility, whilst delivering a solution that allows smooth pedestrian access. It is also a sustainable option, obviously requiring no energy to rotate the door yet positively contributing to a greener environment by helping reduce heat loss from building.

Maintaining the minimalist aesthetics of the predominantly glass reception area, the Swiss-designed TORMAX iMotion 1401 operators that drive the swing doors, are neatly concealed in steel casings set into the floorspace, delivering automation without the need for external operators.

With an impressive lifespan, the iMotion 1401 motors are unique in that they do not feature any of the parts that usually wear out, such as gears and brushes. This dramatically reduces the need for ongoing maintenance and keeps the doors working more efficiently for longer.

“The complete range of TORMAX iMotion door drives are renowned for delivering unparalleled reliability and outstanding ongoing performance,” said Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX UK LTD. “The high-torque motors have been proven worldwide, outperforming other operators to deliver smooth and efficient access for a great many years.”
