Northwestern University – Research Lab

Brief

From the outset, Dortek worked alongside the project team to identify key areas that would require specialist molded fiberglass doors. This collaboration allowed the team to use specific design details that Dortek have developed over its time working in world class medical research facilities. Some of these details included: Extended frame backstop – this protects the back edge of a door from heavy rolling loads when opened at 90 degree angle. Dortek’s integral blind system – Inta Vista. This blind incorporates both the blackout function and red tint film needed in behavioral research areas.

These details, along with university specific hardware and design considerations were incorporated into a strong project specification. Dortek worked with Power Construction to coordinate submittals, delivery scheduling, installation and commissioning through a seamless process.
