Client Rio Tinto
Multinational mining and energy group Rio Tinto’s new £250m global headquarters would see them relocate from Paddington into a 97,000 sq. ft premises at 6 St James’s Square, London.
The design for the impressive space included an entire floor for luxury office meeting areas as well as a high-quality meeting suite for their European executive team.
Radii designed a completely tailor-made glazed partitioning system for Rio Tinto to meet their high-end requirements.
Unlike other glazed partitioning with full-height glass panels, the 2D Rio system can be specified to use multiple individual double- glazed windows for all partition fronts, fully extruded by Radii and acoustically rated at 45dB RW. Furthermore, the partitioning was installed using recessed deflection heads to create cleaner lines throughout.
For the glass doors two solutions were provided: Hogan pivoting doors and Glide sliding doors, both rated at 38dB RW. For all doors Radii also supplied aluminium handles, manufactured to a specific design as per the architect’s vision.
To finish, opaque Opal Frost manifestation were added to areas of the glazed partitioning for added privacy.
