The Ashmolean Museum - Oxford.

A requirement for a high quality, bespoke box to fit in 40mm screed

Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Ashmolean is currently undergoing a £61 million redevelopment. Award-winning architect Rick Mather has designed a new building to replace all but the Grade I listed Cockerell building

Arranged over five floors with level access throughout, it will provide 39 new galleries and 100% more display space than the former building


An extensive temporary exhibition space will enable the Ashmolean to host crowd-pulling ‘blockbuster’ exhibitions. A purpose-built Education Centre, with its own entrance, will be created, as well as three new study centres with hands-on access to reserve collections.

Cableduct's 700 series Stainless Steel floor box was used as a basis, but was altered significantly in order to accommodate the building's unique requirements.

Firstly, the box was designed to fit within the 40mm screed. The stainless steel lids were designed as loose lay so that when the box was required to be used the lid was removed allowing free access to the services inside.

Secondly, the inner frame was designed to be adjustable in 3 axis so that the base could be laid in the screed PRIOR to knowing how the flooring was to be laid, and then the stainless steel lid and frame adjusted to line up with the surrounding tiles.
