Constructed in 2009, 400 George Street is situated adjacent to the Brisbane Magistrates Court and is located in the prestigious North Quarter of Brisbane’s CBD.
With the advancement of technology and access control solutions between then and now, it was decided that a renovation of the end of trip facilities in the building were required to continue to attract blue-chip corporate, state and commonwealth government tenants.
The key requirement for the project was to move away from battery keypads, which are harmful to the environment, and install our hardwired locking solution using base building card and have the option of a user App.
The Cromwell project team selected our Metra ELS DOT Net RFID on door, with exterior LED light indicator, solution to control the 530 lockers throughout the male and female amenities and public lounge area. This solution allows the patron to unlock their assigned locker directly at the door with their base building cards. The LED light indicators can be configured to show if the lockers are occupied or vacant.
In addition to using their access media, the lockers are also set up to use the MyMetraKey (MMK) mobile App. The App is compatible with both Apple and Android devices. MMK allows users to access their lockers or select, extend time and/or release lockers from their smart phone.
There is development works to integrate the Metra software platform with the base building app currently in progress
