DEVELOPMENT AT THE DICKSON POON UNIVERSITY
Protecting the China
Contact Fire and Security were commissioned to design and install a comprehensive access control and CCTV system for the new £21m Dickson Poon China Centre for St Hugh’s College and The University of Oxford. We were delighted to accept this opportunity as it is always a pleasure to work for an organisation of this size.
The new building has floor space of nearly 5,500 square metres (excluding the Chinese central courtyard and garden) over five floors. Its dedicated library and a reading room provides a permanent home for 60,000 volumes and a large part of the Bodleian Libraries' Chinese book collection. It also features a 100-seat lecture theatre; a dining room, study areas, a state-of-the-art language laboratory; and a green, ecologically efficient roof terrace. There are 63 study/bedrooms for graduate students of St Hugh's College in the same building, as well as a range of conference and seminar facilities.
