The Return of the Phone Booth?

Union Doors of MA

Installs Phone Booths at Cambridge Innovation Center

desktop-header

The Cambridge Innovation Center realized the need for privacy.
Before you go bonkers about the type of doors installed – we understand they are not automatic doors, however, they are absolutely in the news!  When was the last time you saw a phone booth?

Sure there is no longer a real need to make a call using a public pay phone, however, the need for quiet space to make a cell phone call is inphoto3 (1) demand.

For those Millennial who have only seen a phone booth in movies or the TARDIS from the popular BBC television series Dr Who will all now be able to take advantage of them at Cambridge Innovation Center.

Forward thinking on servicing a need to provide dedicated real estate for tenants, visiting vendors and staff to make a call with a modicum of privacy without having to duck into a conference room, go outdoors or find a corner in the waiting area provides a great convenience.   This effort also considerably cuts down on the disruptive nature a public call can have on others in the vicinity.

Union Doors was brought in to install Horton manual folding doors for each phone booth at the CIC. For more about Union Doors – CLICK HERE.

Named for Senator Ted Kennedy, the non-profit educational institution on the campus of the University of Massachusetts Boston is dedicated to educating the public, students, and teachers about the role and the importance of the US Senate in our history. The EMK Institute features a unique Senate Immersion Module in a full-scale model of the Senate chamber in Washington, D.C.

In addition to a re-creation of Senator Kennedy’s office, the Institute will also house interactive exhibitions in ancillary galleries and host a series of Model Senate sessions, lectures, and more in the replica chamber.

Advancing Senator Kennedy’s lifetime of service and passion for engaging in the public square, the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate is dedicated to educating the public about our government, invigorating public discourse, encouraging participatory democracy, and inspiring the next generation of citizens and leaders to engage in the civic life of their communities

The 68,000-square-foot center comprises an elegantly symmetrical white concrete base crowned by a dark-gray volume clad in metallic paint. The institute, which graces a site adjacent to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library on the campus of the University of Massachusetts, Boston, will serve a dual role as a space for civic education and a place to honor Senator Kennedy’s lifework.
