The Renaissance at Shorelands, Trinidad



The Renaissance at Shorelands is a high end residential project with two 19 storey buildings of 50,000 sqm.
Just a short drive away from the buzzing activity of the cosmopolitan capital city of Port of Spain, these residences are the realization of ultimate sophistication, serenity and convenience.

The development was expertly designed and constructed to create the ideal Caribbean luxury lifestyle that combines the enjoyment of the rare natural beauty of our islands with the tranquility of complete comfort and security.

CSS is currently supplying ASSA ABLOY’s fire rated steel door and door hardware for over 300 doors at the Shorelands.


This project reached its full height of 22 storeys, and was almost ready for doors and hardware to be installed. However, due to some late changes in the design, in-depth coordination between architect, contractor and door supplier was needed. The hardware specification and the preparation of rough openings had some points that had not yet been dealt with.

The project required a specific solution to be configured that would allow:


  • doors and hardware be specified to suit the existing opening conditions as they were – no cutting or adjusting was possible
  • material had to be specified, approved and ordered to suit a very tight timeline
  • maintaining the project budget


After several site visits to the project in Trinidad, CSS was able to specify the material to suit the project’s budget, and meet the unique requirements of the opening

CSS worked along with the client and the supplier to provide phased production and delivery of the material to suit the construction deadlines – the doors they needed first and most urgently were delivered first then the doors needed for the 2nd phase were delivered as needed etc. etc.

To date CSS has fulfilled orders for over 450 doors for the project.
