Dash Door was retained by international civil contractor, Bouygues Civil Works Florida for three separate scopes of work at the Port of Miami Tunnel project. The Port of Miami Tunnel (POMT) project was built by MAT Concessionaire, LLC, in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Miami-Dade County and the City of Miami.
Dash Door furnished and installed:
1) Stainless Steel frames and swing fire doors with associated hardware
2) Stainless Steel Overhead Rolling doors at cross passages
3) Custom Stainless Steel sliding fire doors with stainless steel enclosure pockets at all of the emergency cross passages between tunnels
The sliding fire doors were calibrated and tested for easy opening and self-closing under differential pressure conditions which occur during emergency smoke evacuation routines. This criteria imposed stringent manufacturing and installation tolerances in order to ensure smooth operation during demanding conditions. Dash Door engineering provided design and calculations for the performance criteria required. All aspects of Dash’s scope of work were design build and involved design coordination with constant communication through submittals and modification requests for the constantly changing project conditions.
The Port of Miami Project is a local landmark civil structure to which Dash Door is proud to have contributed.
“Dash Door & Closer is a shining example of true professionalism and quality service of the highest order that can be found in all of South Florida. I have contracted with Dash Door to provide automatic assemblies for Miami International Airport, including doors, frames, hardware, security components and system integration and have also benefited from their outstanding service contract performance. For more than 10 years of managing facility maintenance and construction projects as a Project Manager at the University of Miami and also Beauchamp Construction Company, I consistently have been impressed with Dash Door & Closer and am absolute in giving my full endorsement!”

“Dash Door has become a trusted resource in the door maintenance and upgrades for our facility. When I learned that Dash Door had provided automatic door operators and custom programming for a number of specialized doors in our facility during the original construction, I called them for a second opinion on a quote I received for some door hardware modifications. Instead of providing a quote for the same material suggested by others, Dash Door proposed a solution utilizing a $15 part. This integrity saved us hundreds of dollars per door location. I appreciate Dash Door’s commitment to service and ability to provide expert support pertaining to ANY facet of their industry.”
