DORMA tunes into landmark Bush House redevelopment

DORMA tunes into landmark Bush House redevelopment

In 1929 it was the most expensive building in the world but the former HQ of the BBC World Service, Bush House in London has been sensitively restored and brought up to modern standards as part of the landmark Aldwych Quarter redevelopment. To meet the client’s exacting standards for product quality and long term performance, DORMA, the trusted global partner for premium access solutions and services supplied a range of door controls and floor springs.

With the building stripped back so that the original Edwardian features could remain prominent it was imperative that door closers and ironmongery were both aesthetically pleasing and compliant with the latest legislation. Provided by architectural ironmongery specialists Aspex UK, a large number of door operators, concealed door closers and floor springs from DORMA were specified on various packages of works for their compact and elegant design, long term durability and ability to provide safe, secure and reliable access.

Approximately 213 x ITS 96 concealed door closers, 140 x TS 72VBC closers, 47 x TS73 V closers and 4 x BTS 75V floor concealed closers were supplied and installed across the three buildings for offices, corridors and entrances to offer maximum reliability, proven quality and peace of mind. Graeme White, Technical Sales at Aspex UK, said "We have always specified DORMA and their reliability, practicality and robustness is second to none. They are the natural choice for high profile projects such as Bush House where high quality products with the best features are essential.”
