The most safe ventilation system for the Westgate Centre, Oxford
The more than 40 years old Westgate Centre, situated in the old English town Oxford, renowned from its prestigious university established in the 12th century, is now closed and under reconstruction, and scheduled to reopen in Autumn 2017 as the ultimate retail and lifestyle destination for the residents of this historical city.
The new Westgate Oxford Development will bring a new shopping and leisure destination to Oxford. It will include more than 100 stores, 25 restaurants and cafes, a boutique cinema and a roof top terrace dining and a wealth of new public spaces. The redevelopment works are progressing well and on schedule to reopen the Centre in October 2017.
For this large reconstruction NOVENCO Building & Industry has been contracted to design, supply, install and commission the smoke ventilation systems for the whole development. This includes mechanical smoke clearance systems for the large two level basement car park, loading bay and service yard. All natural and mechanical AOV stair systems are also part of NOVENCO Building & Industry’s scope of work on this very interesting project.
