Southern Gateway renderingProtus3 will provide the design, construction, and commissioning of the integrated security systems for Longfellow Real Estate Partners for the Durham Innovation District Southern Gateway Project.

Protus3 will research, survey, analyze and design security systems for Longfellow Real Estate Partners within the scope of this design project that may include access control, perimeter protection devices, digital video, communication equipment and barrier gate equipment. The project will also include the development of an RFP for contract security officers and the policies and standard operating procedures for security staff.

The buildings – focused primarily on office and technology use, but also including retail and restaurants – will be located on Morris Street between Hunt and Roney in what is currently a large parking lot.

Each building – known as 200 Morris (to be occupied by the Duke Clinical Research Institute) and 300 Morris – will reach seven stories, together totaling nearly 350,000 square feet. A new eight-story, architecturally screened parking deck will be constructed behind the buildings, accessible from the south and east sides of Roney Street, accommodating approximately 1,200 vehicles. The deck will offer supplemental public parking for community events and the adjacent Downtown Durham Farmers’ Market. Longfellow and its partners expect to complete construction during the summer of 2018. Read more about the project here.
