ASSA ABLOY Australia contributes to award-winning facility /global/scaled/1588x679x9x318x524x224/Global-Press-and-News-News-2013-TRI Reseach Institute Brisbane Australia.jpg Multiple state-of-the-art ASSA ABLOY products are ensuring first-rate security at the award-winning Translational Research Institute (TRI) building in Brisbane, Australia. The USD 177 million, 32,000 square meter building is one of the largest medical research institutes in the southern hemisphere – and as such it demanded a high-tech access control solution and first-rate security in keeping with the manner of research conducted at a world-class laboratory.The new seven-story TRI building comprises four floors of laboratory research plus facilities for research support, administration and teaching. To meet the challenge, ASSA ABLOY Australia liaised with the architects and helped to prepare schedules. Complicated door and frame designs contributed to the complexity of the task.The answer was to supply multiple products – under the Lockwood, ABLOY PROTEC and Padde by Lockwood brands – to secure this ground-breaking facility. These include 3570 series Lockwood commercial mortise locks – both mechanical and electric – combined with 1800 series Lockwood commercial square end plate furniture. Trimec V-Locks and Padde electromagnets are used for access control and the keying system is ABLOY PROTEC. In November this year the building won a National Architecture Award. Earlier, the TRI received the state of Queensland’s top architecture prize – the FDG Stanley Award for Public Architecture – along with the GHM Addison Award for Interior Architecture. This project proves to be another success for ASSA ABLOY Australia, which has already provided security solutions for several medical projects.
