The new city hall of Herzogenburg is a secure building for everyone.
Franz Zwicker - Mayor of the City of Herzogenburg
“Thanks to specialised skills and dedication of the staff, the collaboration with dormakaba worked out excellently. The access system performs all the functions we wanted and has a flexible design”.
General building data
Due to necessary thermal reconstruction and legal requirements for accessibility, in 2015 the city council of Herzogenburg decided to construct the new city hall After the common planning activities of architects and public officials were concluded, the construction of the new building was begun in 2016. A neighbouring section, housing the city library and the building authority, was remodelled and modernised so that it could also be used today as a specialised medicine clinic.
After just 18 months of construction time, the new city hall and specialised medicine clinic presents itself today as a modern and functional building with intelligent access solutions by dormakaba that perfectly satisfy the requirements for security, functionality, accessibility and energy efficiency in the public sector.
Kundenanforderungen an dormakaba
- Barrier-free design
- Energy efficiency
- Modern access control
dormakaba solutions contribute to the implementation of requirements for accessibility and energy efficiency. This is evident when you enter or leave the new city hall through a ST FLEX Green automatic sliding double door with thermally insulated profiles. Outside of business hours, the sliding door is controlled by a dormakaba evolo access reader.
Access control using evolo wall readers is also used at the secondary entrance doors. In contrast to the main entrance, these doors are operated with the modern and reliable ED 250 swing door operators with the 0° Power Assist function.
The decision for an access solution was quickly made in favour of the digital standalone access system dormakaba evolo. This is because access permissions can be issued and modified quickly and easily with it. All office doors and the doors to the assembly hall have beautiful electronic c-lever compact fittings. On doors in the general area, such as the bicycle room, rubbish room, etc., dormakaba evolo digital cylinders are used instead. Subtle wall readers grant access to the lift, which also leads to the internal areas.
For opening in case of emergency, the doors were also equipped with mechanical Kaba star locking cylinders, which have been integrated into the existing management system of the Municipality of Herzogenburg.
