Client:DPD Local

Location:Leeds

Delivery experts DPD Local appointed Rodley Interiors to partition their Leeds hub with frameless glass office partitioning. In-line with their company re-brand we chose a partitioning system that would mirror their new modern corporate identity.

Frameless glass office partitioningThe Design Brief

We attended site to assess the space and suggested ideas that would be the most beneficial for our client in line with their re-brand.  The area all-be it generously sized did not support their plans to create a more practical workspace. By interpreting our client’s vision for the space we suggested installing 2 styles of frameless glass office partitioning to create;

  • Individual offices.
  • A division through the open plan area.

Free-standing Frameless Glass

The large open plan area was not only used as an office but a walkway for all staff in and out of the building. Our client wanted to create segregation between the areas, without making them feel too enclosed.  Frameless glass partitioning was the ideal solution. Rather than creating one continuous run of glass we manufactured individual panes of glass and staggered them down the area giving a feel of openness throughout and adding a real feature to the space.

A Combination of MaterialsFrameless glass office partitioning

To create the individual office areas we used solid partitioning and enclosed the spaces with glass. The glazing when in manufacture was heat treated ensuring it was safe to install within a busy a office. This toughened frameless glass partitioning was sturdy enough to suited the high ceiling level with a height of 2800mm. An attractive way to accentuate frameless glass partitioning is to fit this alongside a contrasting material. For this project we installed full height doors in an Oak veneer with matching frames.

To complete the project within a requested timescale the glazing panels were pre-ordered for a quick turnaround.

Other works we completed…

In addition to the glass install we also carried out the following;

  • Alterations to the suspended ceiling.
  • Lifting of existing carpet and the supply and install of checkerboard tiles.
  • Manifestation detail to the glazing.
