Security and Style on UBC Campus

In October 2015, Creative Door's Vancouver branch helped improve security at the brand new Prodigy condominium development on the University of British Columbia campus.

Overlooking Mundell Park, the development is a stunning combination of modern design and natural, green living. Among the many luxury amenities available to residents, including private roof decks and ENERGY STAR appliances, is a spacious underground parkade.

"Residents at the Prodigy shouldn't have to worry about vandalism, illegal entry into the building, or having their vehicle broken into when using the parkade," says Mike Van't Hullenaar, commercial sales consultant at Creative Door's British Columbia branch. "The solution was to install a door that blends into the contemporary architecture of the building in hopes that it would be less of a target for criminal activity."

Van't Hullenaar and his team opted for the Richards-Wilcox model A175-A, a sectional aluminum overhead door with sleek silver panels.

"The aluminum paneling of the model A175-A fits perfectly with Prodigy's modern West Coast style. It can also withstand high traffic and heavy force, making it ideal for busy parkades," says Van't Hullenaar.

"Security, safety, and style all came together for this project," says Van't Hullenaar. "We were able to take the unique needs of our customer and design a solution that our team is proud of."
