“The new HQ for Chevron is one of the largest commercial developments constructed in Aberdeen this decade.”
Charles Smith, Managing Director, SMC Jenkins & Marr
With natural daylight playing a critical role in building ergonomics, the design brief centred around creating a bright spacious interior which would promote productivity throughout the workspace.
LC SmartGlass was specified for this project to allow instant and precise privacy control for each meeting room situated along the corridor. Floor to ceiling LC SmartGlass panels are installed within a partition wall system as well as within the doors leading in to each meeting room. Switchable glass reduces the uncomfortable “gold fish bowl” feeling when working in high density office spaces. LC SmartGlass offered an ideal solution to fulfill what was required in the design brief by improving the workspace surroundings and creating a stimulating work environment.
LC SmartGlass has exceptional optical qualities that reduce eye strain and glare thus creating a more comfortable working environment. Visible light transmission is only reduced by 8% when the glass is in its opaque state meaning internal lighting is not affected when the glass is switched on/off throughout the day.
Staff at Chevron can now create a private space within each meeting room on the corridor where LC SmartGlass is installed instantly on demand. Light is not compromised when the glass is switched to its “off” (private) state with 67% light transmission allowing for a bright and spacious interior to hold meetings.
