Style have delivered a flexible space solution in the business school at the University of Gloucestershire as part of a multi-million-pound development.
Contemporary Dorma Hüppe moveable wall systems allowed lecturers and teaching staff to utilise open plan areas for larger classes, seminars and performances.
The space can also be divided to allow smaller sessions to run simultaneously and undisturbed.
Style has also provided the University with a comprehensive annual service and maintenance contract that covers all the partitioning walls.
This ensures regular service checks and routine maintenance as well as safeguarding the walls’ acoustic integrity.
The final arrangements for the University of Gloucestershire consists of three Dorma Hüppe Variflex moveable wall systems.
Both the sliding wall in the nursing hub and the one in the performing arts centre feature semi-automatic operation, delivering 55dB Rw acoustic privacy between divided areas.
The manual Variflex wall in the business hub has a 53dB Rw acoustic rating and a writable white board finish.
Julian Sargent, Style’s Group Managing Director said: “It was a real pleasure working with the various architects and contractors on this project.”
“A major advantage to the University is that by choosing us as their sole moveable wall provider, we can take a holistic approach and find solutions that work across the entire campus, rather than looking at each room in isolation.”
Style worked with Architect Austin-Smith and contractor Wilmott Dixon on the Business and Growth Hub, Integrated Architecture and contractor Barnwood General Works on the Nursing Hub and Heath Avery Architects and contractor E W Beard Limited on the Performing Arts Centre.
