For the $30 million renovation of the 17-story Parkshore Retirement Community in Seattle, WA, general contractor Halvorson Construction brought American Direct on board to design and deliver a totally integrated safety and security solution.

By providing pre-installed intelligent locks pre-loaded with a turnkey access control software solution — as well as providing onsite installation and technical support — American Direct significantly shortened installation time while reducing cost by 30%.
