As part of its recent Master Plan Update, Metropolitan Community College (MCC) in Omaha, Nebraska strategically created three buildings as centers of specialization.
It's 65,000 sq. ft. Central Main Building included the incorporation of two Schweiss bifold doors. The larger 18.4' wide x 26.5' tall designer door was clad in glass. The smaller 15.6' wide x 18.3' tall door was clad in fiber cement panels. Both doors were powder coated and have electric photo eye sensors, door base safety edges, warning lights and horns, gray liftstraps and emergency back-up systems in case of a power outage.
The larger door is used to bring in equipment and the smaller door gives access to classrooms and opens to a transitional room housing utility components.
