Energy-Efficient Guard Shelter Solutions: Shelters and Guard Booths from B.I.G. Enterprises Meet New Stringent State Requirements

When a major university needed truly custom, energy-compliant guard booths, they recently turned to B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc.(http://www.bigbooth.com) for a solution. Not only did B.I.G. designs meet California’s strict energy efficiency standards, B.I.G. is also the only pre-fab guard booth manufacturer to currently meet state of Washington energy conservation standards, which are the most restrictive in the country.

The booths are sensitive to the surrounding architecture, meet all state building and energy codes, comply with ADA access requirements, have high-output HVAC systems, and include a restroom. In addition, the exterior design incorporates architectural overhangs and stainless steel turnbuckles. Wall panels were prepped for a custom finish. The interior has solid surface counters, ergonomically efficient working areas, stylish lighting, and pre-wiring for data and communications systems.

Their high-end quality attests to the fact that factory-built, pre-fabricated designs look great, and perform as well as site-built structures, while helping control costs.

As guard booths and shelters are structures that are used every day, they need to be fabricated from the best materials, have exterior and interior finishes that will endure, posses the best window and door hardware available, and incorporate correctly-sized HVAC systems to maximize energy efficiency. Guard booths must also be considered from an aesthetic perspective; they serve as security checkpoints, and also as visual statements that define the image of the facility, in this case, a major university.

B.I.G. booths, shelters, and security command centers are tough, innovative, and enduring. They are easy to install, and are significantly sound. They provide a platform for creativity, security, and maximum flexibility.
