Schmidt Hammer Lassen
Client University of Aberdeen
When the University of Aberdeen planned its new £57 million, seven-floor purpose-built library – named Sir Duncan Rice after its former Principal and Vice Chancellor – Pihl Contractors and Danish architects, Schmidt Hammer Lassen, approached Planet Partitioning to put together the design and detail of the internal partitioning.
The work included partitioning throughout the library and creating office room frontages on multiple levels.
Over 18 months, Planet worked within the budget to achieve the sound attenuation levels required, using a combination of PURE100 double glazed partitioning and PURE20 single glazed frameless glass partition systems.
Planet also installed timber doors throughout the library and was responsible for drywalling, which included solid partitioning between rooms and plasterboard wall lining.
