Replace Exterior Vestibule Entrances
Client: Department of Veterans Affairs
Location: VA Medical Center, West Palm Beach, FL
This project was for design and construction of four upgraded exterior vestibule entrances to the West Palm Beach VAMC. New sliding doors with impact-resistant glass replaced the existing doors, and impact-resistant glass also replaced all exterior glass above the new sliding doors. The work included installation of an access control system on the new sliding doors, with card access in and out during off hours. The doors are fully automatic during normal business hours, featuring a delayed egress system per NFPA and a fire alarm release system during alarm conditions. An access control cabinet was installed in the imaging telephone closet for access control and future expansion of access control. Security cameras were also installed at all four entrances.
