Notice to Bidders


The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City (The J) is seeking sealed bids for the project listed below. The J’s mission is to build a strong, vibrant, and inclusive community that enhances wellness, meaning, and joy, based on Jewish values, heritage, and culture.


As we seek to increase the security of our facility, we are installing turnstiles at our main entrance. This will allow us to better control the flow of individuals withing our facility and allow us to track who is in the building. The turnstiles will also act as a deterrent to those who wish to do us harm.


We need three lanes of traffic for all incoming traffic. Outgoing traffic will be using a separate door except in the case of emergencies. Our front entrance was recently remodeled so we will not be making any changes or modifications to the floor.

  • The turnstiles and gate will need to be touchless optical turnstiles
  • Two (2) turnstiles will need to be 42”

    • Work with OpenPath

Power will be supplied by The J to the power supplies. Conduit is currently run to two locations within the walls for running wires to the turnstiles.

All quotes should include project management, coordination, programming, testing, training, and at least 1-year parts and labor warranty.

The turnstiles will need to be installed in coordination with The J before January 27, 2023.
