Glazed partitions for a world class university facility based in Bristol

Glazed partitions for a world class university facility based in Bristol

The £50m Business School for the University of the West of England, located in the proposed ‘Heart Zone’ of the Frenchay Campus masterplan, provides a new home for the Faculty of Business and Law.

The vision behind the design was around transparency, visibility, and collaboration. The 17,000 square metre iconic building, which spans seven floors, includes large areas of collaborative space for students, visitors and staff to meet.

Impressive Atrium

Circulation around the Bristol Business School is obvious and highly visible from the main atrium where Lusso installed their frameless double glazed 105 system.

The system needed to be designed for imposed line load and potential wind load within the space. The glazed atrium, which is the heart of the building, incorporates a variety of social learning and flexible meeting spaces.

Sleek Design

The two wings of accommodation contrast to reflect the accommodation uses within and the orientation of the building on the site for environmental purposes. For these, Lusso installed their 105 double glazed framed system which complimented the other atria screens and enabled the slim ghost post mullion to incorporate the integral blind control mechanism.

Multi Award Winning Project

The multi award winning project was delivered to Building Information Modelling (BIM) Level 2 maturity.

The FIS, a representative body for the finishes and interiors sector, presented Lusso with the Silver Award in Partitioning for the Business School at their annual awards ceremony. These awards are held annually and are designed to ‘promote and encourage highs levels of craftsmanship’.
