Marks Barfield Architects
As one of Santander’s approved suppliers, Planet was approached directly by the client to specify internal glass partitions and glass doors for the refurbishment of VIP meeting rooms at its UK headquarters. The project required a visually stunning, premium finish and high sound attenuation levels.
Working with Marks Barfield Architects and main contractor Bluu, Planet Partitioning put together the internal specification for the internal glazed partitions and doors. By installing PURE100 double-glazed partitioning and single and double IsoPro doors in all the VIP meeting rooms, Planet achieved the look and the high sound attenuation levels required. In addition, Tech panels were installed to accommodate electronic room booking systems, while the meeting rooms and the restaurant area had matching manifestation detail.
Added privacy was ensured where it was needed most – in the meeting rooms, with three-quarter-high switchable glass division panels. This achieved perfect balance between good levels of natural light and meeting room privacy. FireTec doors on the ground floor help meet the building’s strict fire strategy requirements, while Planet selected a polyester powder-coated colour scheme to complement the meeting rooms’ bronze anodised aluminium colour.
To ensure minimum disruption to Santander, the majority of the work was undertaken at evenings and weekends.
