Product: Bespoke glazed entrance system

Application: Educational Property


Pembroke College, a prestigious institution renowned for its academic excellence, sought to revamp its entrance to reflect its modern ethos while preserving its architectural heritage. Glasstec Systems was tasked with this endeavor and embarked on a journey with Savvy Construction, from design to the installation of a bespoke arched frameless glass entrance, breathing new life into the entrance to the dining room.

Our team meticulously crafted a design that seamlessly integrated modern aesthetics with the college’s historic charm. The project’s centerpiece was the installation of stunning frameless automated glass doors, creating a grand entrance that exuded elegance and sophistication.

Concealed Underfloor Automatic door operators complemented this architectural marvel, ensuring smooth and effortless entry for students, faculty, and visitors alike.

In addition to the main features, a strategically placed bespoke anodized post accommodates a push-to-open button, blending functionality with style. Furthermore, flat scan safety sensors were meticulously mounted on the frameless glass doors, prioritizing the safety and well-being of everyone traversing through Pembroke College’s entrance.

The restricted working hours imposed logistical hurdles, necessitating meticulous planning and coordination to ensure that each project phase progressed smoothly. Our team had to adapt to condensed timelines, working efficiently to meet deadlines without compromising quality or safety standards.

Moreover, historical structures added another layer of complexity to the project. Preserving Pembroke College’s architectural integrity required a delicate balance between innovation and tradition, with meticulous attention to detail at every stage of the installation process.

Despite these challenges, our team’s expertise, professionalism, and unwavering commitment to excellence ensured the successful completion of the project within the stipulated timeframe.

The transformation of Pembroke College’s entrance is a testament to the power of innovation and collaboration. By seamlessly blending modern design elements with timeless architectural features, our construction company has revitalized the college’s facade, creating a welcoming and functional space for all who pass through its doors.

Moving forward, we remain committed to pushing the boundaries of architectural excellence, delivering transformative solutions that leave a lasting impression.
