Glass moveable wall at Southampton University
At Southampton University, the Boldrewood Innovation Campus is home to some of its most up-to-date buildings and facilities. It houses the University’s centre for innovation, business, education in maritime engineering, and engineering sciences.
On this high profile project, Style was specified to create flexibility in the campus café; a central place where students gather and relax. This light, open room required a moveable partitioning wall that would complement its modern design, and DORMA Moveo glass was seen as the perfect solution.
Moveo is a hugely popular acoustic glazed moveable wall system with a Rw 50dB performance. Each glass partition panel incorporates DORMA’s ComfortTronic auto seal system making setup a quick and effortless operation.
As with other partitioning walls from DORMA, it also leads the way in sustainable solutions with environment product declaration (EPD) in accordance with ISO 14025 and EN 15804.
“We were delighted to have been specified for this project, and to be involved in such a modern, innovative building,” said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director. “The glass Moveo system was ideal for the University café as it provides the flexibility to quickly divide the area into two private dining rooms, or open it into one expansive area.
“The outstanding acoustics mean that, when closed, you enjoy privacy on each side. However, this glass moveable wall creates a feeling of openness at all times and maximises natural light.”
Style is 7 times winner of the prestigious FIS Contractors Gold award and is the exclusive UK partner to DORMA for its moveable walls.
