Pensacola State College Baars Technology Building

A new $15 million, 23,839-square-foot technology building has opened at Pensacola State College. The new Baars Technology Building will house the college’s STEM programs including cybersecurity, mathematics and computer science. The Pensacola News Journal quoted, “The building will allow us to expand the program and provide more class offerings per term,” said Robert Pratten, cybersecurity program coordinator. “We are currently stretched to the max in trying to provide classes for all of our students. Now we can offer classes with leading-edge technology in the classroom, keeping pace with the industry and technological advances.””

This new state of the art building was outfitted with doors, hardware, and access control from Warren Doors & Access Control. A total off 44 openings, 11 hollow metal and 33 wood, were completed on this project. Warren Doors worked in conjunction with Merritt Glass, who provided aluminum frames for the wood door openings that required custom rabbeted wood transom panels, in order to give the customer the desired aesthetic. The wood doors and transoms were products of Eggers and all of the hollow metal doors on this job were Steelcraft. These doors were all finished with STANLEY and PRECISION hardware, both brands under the dormakaba family.

The Baars Technology Building was completed with a S2 access control system and NABCO automatic door operators. With unmatched speed and reliability, S2’s feature-rich access control systems centralize credential-based access control, intrusion detection and video applications for a unified, 100% web-based management experience. Combined with NABCO auto-operators, we’re able to create a custom operation, with adjustable closing speeds to allow a door to close sooner for energy savings or slower for increased pedestrian safety. This total access control system provides security for students and staff alike, allowing for a distraction-free school environment.
