ASB GlassFloor looks back at a year full of highlights: next to the international launch event of the 3X3-UNITES Basketball federation and an entirely new glass art installation at ORGATEC, the collaboration with the University of Oxford was one of the most spectacular highlights of 2018. The University of Oxford is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in the world. Its brand-new indoor sports centre now features the innovative MultiSports glass flooring system by ASB GlassFloor.
Less than 100 kilometres outside of London lies the University of Oxford, the oldest English-speaking university in the world which was founded in the 12th century. Over the centuries, the institution has established a reputation that is second to none and attracts students from all over the world. Named after Oxford graduate and Olympic medal winner Acer Nethercott, the state-of-the-art sports centre is part of a major redesign of the University’s sports facilities, which are located on the historic Iffley Road. The new building will be connected to the Rosenblatt swimming pool and includes a 700 m² sports hall, a multipurpose activity room, changing rooms, a reception and a café.
The teachers, students and athletes can change the sport at the touch of a button: from volleyball to football, from basketball to badminton to handball and vice versa. The sports hall is mainly used by the Oxford University students, but can also be rented for special occasions.
