New contract for Oxford Humanities Centre

Britplas is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a contract by Laing O’Rourke to complete the glazing package to the new Stephen A. Schwarzman Centre for the Humanities at Oxford University.

The new building, designed by Hopkins Architects, is one of the university’s biggest ever building projects, bringing nine faculties and institutes and seven libraries and collections into one home, with spaces for graduate, postgraduate and post-doctoral learning and research.

Britplas will be carrying out the design and installation of Schuco aluminium windows and door sets along with associated perimeter detailing and flashings.

The windows and doors are required to meet Passivhaus standards, with rigorous energy efficient design standards therefore being applied by the Britplas design team.

The project starts on site next month, with completion scheduled in June 2024.
