ASSA ABLOY Security Doors has supplied fire and personnel steel doorsets to the former Television Centre in White City, London, as part of its conversion into high-end residential apartments.
A UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, have been heavily involved in the redeveloping of the Grade II Listed building, which is set to include 950 new homes.
It will also provide 500,000 sq. ft of office space, a hotel, restaurants and three new state-of-the-art studios.
The doors, of which approximately 80 were supplied to the block work package, were procured through specialist sub contract packages.
A further 50 doors were supplied as part of the internal joinery fit out package.
Area Sales Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, Nigel Cronin, commented: “We’re delighted to be associated with such an iconic site. The history of the Television Centre is held dear in many people’s hearts and minds; it’s fantastic to be associated with such a well-loved landmark.
“Though it may have come to the end of its life in its former capacity, we’re proud to help transform the Television Centre into a vibrant new community in west London, while preserving its iconic status.”
