Gainesville Regional Utilities, located in Gainesville, Florida, recently completed the second phase of its lobby renovation. For Phase 1, completed in 2009, Total Security Solutions designed a custom Level III bullet-resistant barrier system, featuring TSS-BL 1.75 ballistic framing and horizontal sliders, seamlessly integrated with casework to create three cashier and four customer service workstations. Phase 2 included a custom bullet resistant glass enclosure for the receptionist station, as well as bulletproof aluminum doors at both the entry and exit of the lobby.
Throughout the construction of the project, it was important that the lobby remain fully functional. With TSS’ commitment to personalized, responsive service, evening and/or weekend installations are just part of the business.

Despite the distance between TSS’ headquarters and the project location, both phases were a success as a result of the coordination and understanding from all involved parties. “We had an overall positive experience with TSS,” said Calvin Peterson III, Senior Project Manager for PPI/Charles Perry Construction, LLC. “They were instrumental in assisting the architect and us in bringing the project to a successful outcome. They were extremely knowledgeable about their product and business and professional in their demeanor.”
