University of Oxford

The Kennedy Building and Nuffield Department of Medicine building are part of a large research facility at Oxford University. Mace approached Planet Partitioning to work alongside Make architects and provide specification for all the new building’s internal glazing needs – for offices, meeting rooms and laboratories.

Our solution

The specification for the Kennedy Building meeting rooms and offices required high acoustic performance and a high quality finish. So Planet Partitioning installed p100 double glazed partitioning system with a frosted glass decal pattern for visual contrast. Double glazed glass doors featured in all the meeting rooms and offices – some with venetian blinds for added privacy.

To meet acoustic performance targets and enhance the look and feel of the laboratories in the Nuffield building, Planet Partitioning used p100 with bespoke aluminium doorframes and low-iron glass to maintain transparency. Several offices run parallel to the laboratories and Planet Partitioning used p20 for a slim-lined glass separation.

Planet Partitioning installed deflection heads on all partition system wall cladding with back-painted glass screens throughout the main reception area, where installing multiple doors, screens and shutters involved detailed designs to ensure a striking finish.

Through multiple successful projects, Planet Partitioning has developed an excellent ongoing relationship with a world-class university.
