Requirement

Globe Works is a new student accommodation development in the centre of Birmingham. Offering stylish living facilities for up to 520 residents, the building is extremely busy 24/7.

TORMAX was contracted by DW Hicks Building Co Ltd to deliver a solution that would provide fast and efficient access to the building for all students.

Work undertaken

A contemporary 4-wing automatic revolving door was installed at the main entrance, with an automatic swing door to one side. Both doors are powered by in-house-designed TORMAX operators, combining unparalleled reliability with simple day-to-day programming, allowing practical adjustment of operating speed and hold open/closing times to precisely match pedestrian footfall.

Contributing to sustainability targets, both doors can be operated in low-energy mode. The revolving door, powered by the high torque TORMAX 5251 door drive, can be activated by either starting rotation only when slight pressure is applied to a door-leaf or rotating as soon as door sensors are triggered.

The swing door, driven by the technologically advanced TORMAX 1201 operator, can either be used in full-power application, in power-assisted manual door opening mode or even low-energy mode without safety features.

Outcome

“The enduring combination of a revolving entrance with automatic swing pass door is an extremely practical solution for a wide variety of locations,” comments Simon Roberts, MD for TORMAX. “The revolving door is great at minimising heat-loss from a building yet delivers fast-moving access for large numbers of people.

“The swing door ensures less-able users have clear access and is also ideal for bringing in bulky items – such as the large quantities of luggage that students arrive with at the start of term.”

L&UK Property Group developed this modern student residence in response to increasing demand for quality accommodation. All rooms come fully furnished and students can enjoy the vibrant common room with games area and large TV for movie nights, as well as a gym and, of course, super-fast WiFi. The scheme is managed by Nido Student, who offer award-winning student accommodation across the UK.
