Ben Gurion University – Entry and Security Check System – Gate of Knowledge

Development of a new entrance and security check system for the Marcus Family Campus in Beer Sheva. The system includes a main pedestrian security check building, vehicle security check buildings and a service building with steel roofing.
The purpose of this project is to enable entry control of vehicles and pedestrians while providing a response to security needs and improving the appearance of the main entry gate into the campus.
The entire site has an architectural concrete panel cladding compatible with most of the buildings on the campus and includes sophisticated control and security systems that provide an appropriate response to the growing needs of the campus.
Since it was not possible to relocate or close the existing entry system to the campus through which about 5,000 pedestrians and more than 2,000 vehicles pass each day, the client required that the project be executed while maintaining routine entry and exit to and from the campus and complex construction staging during which the project was built in parts and connected together to form a complete unified system.
