Acoustic and architectural challenges met

The original structures have been reimagined resulting in a striking contemporary design showcasing the original brick work, ironwork and the surviving grand brick viaducts. To meet the architectural and acoustic challenges a Rockfon® Mono® Acoustic seamless ceiling system was specified.

Architecture and design practice KSS Associate, Trevor Gidlow commented, “We were commissioned by interior fit-out specialists, Portview, to review various ceiling systems. Five were reviewed including monolithic and stretched fabric systems. Our assessment criteria included - appearance, sustainability, acoustic class, fire resistance, combustibility, weight, installation angle and curved edge profiles. Rockfon Mono Acoustic was our final recommendation and main contractor selection based on the ability to install as a multi-gang operation, thereby gaining significant programme benefits. The appearance of the installation fully achieved the original design vision”.

Rockfon Mono Acoustic provides Class A sound absorption to significantly decrease echo and reverberation, helping create the perfect environment and acoustic performance for visitors to interact with the latest Samsung technology.

Craig Wheatley of certified Rockfon® Mono® Acoustic installer, Pacy & Wheatley Acoustics, “What an amazing project to be involved in, from design to completion. A key feature is the striking detailed curved ceiling troughs, which housed the main services. We installed Rockfon Monolithic between the troughs, which required systematic installation techniques. We applied Rockfon elegant render to the entire area, which achieves a smooth, seamless ceiling, embodying 87% light reflection and 99% light diffusion. The completed installation has a 94.5 rating on the L value.”
