Having a strong reputation for developing innovative design-led partitioning solutions, Norwood was given the challenge of creating an acoustically sealed teaching pod area within the iconic Roundhouse grade II listed building at Derby College. The project was commissioned in consultation with Bowmer & Kirkland and Maber Architects.

Norwood demonstrated its ability to introduce fully demountable and relocatable teaching pods into a grade II listed building, with the benefits of their obvious stunning visual and acoustic appeal. Whilst the solution emphasises the importance of using a design-led partition solution partner, the on-site manufacturing facilitates at Norwood allowed delivery of finished materials direct to site, thereby minimising on-site disruption. Furthermore, the incorporation of electrical and mechanical equipment within the partition design was a significant to the overall project finish.
