Description: installation of Secure Entrance Doors
These works consisted of the removal of all existing entrance doors and screens and the installation of automatic aluminium sliding entrance doors with a secure door entry system, including an intercom control panel system.
To maintain the security of the building, all work had to be carried out in one day, leaving the building lockfast at site shutdown.
The work also consisted of the installation of a new mat well frame and coir mat, removal of old handrail and the installation of a new painted metal handrail. Making good wall finishes and decoration completed the package.
Because this was the main entrance, temporary access and egress was diverted to the rear of the building. This was explained to residents at discussion days and the appropriate signage was displayed.
