Broadsword were appointed as subcontractor for a multi-discipline supply and installation package by Geoffrey Osborne Limited at the prestigious West Downs 1 Project, University of Winchester.
Works were carried out to three very distinct buildings namely Theatre, Teaching Block and Library over two floors.
Each building posed challenges with acoustic requirements and interface and co-ordination between many varied types of construction.
Broadsword worked closely with the project design team to assist with detailing and overcoming the use of many bespoke products.
The completed building has many visually stunning architectural features with the show-piece being the sloping timber slat and mf ceiling to the first floor of the Library.
Broadsword are very proud to be responsible for many of the high quality unique finishes throughout the buildings.
