American Direct was initially retained to provide commercial door frames and hardware, pre-hung doors, and associated openings product for the project. But when the contractor learned that American Direct could not only deliver but also install all of that product from its Regional Service Center (RSC) in Tempe, they added access control to American Direct’s responsibilities as well.

American Direct worked closely with the architect to develop a hardware schedule which defined the brands and the functionality of the door hardware selected as well as comply with fire, life safety, accessibility and building code requirements. This guidance assured an economic and aesthetic compatibility to the owner’s requirements, plus reduced the risk for cost related changes in the field due to incomplete or incorrect hardware or opening selection.

One of the main goals of the design team was to create a home-like ambiance on the exterior as well as the interior so residents would feel more “at home” in the facility. Because of the numerous openings and several door vendors being used, keeping delivery of product on schedule was indeed a challenge. American Direct’s vendors went above and beyond to get materials delivered on time in order to meet deadlines, one of the many benefits of American Direct’s deep industry ties and vendor relationships.
