Wood ceilings from Armstrong feature in a university campus refurbishment.
Engineering students at the University of Edinburgh are getting a little extra help with their studies from Armstrong Ceilings.
Wood lay-in tiles and a customised wood canopy are helping to define and soften a new student work/social area as part of the interior refurbishment of the university’s Hudson Beare Building on its Kings Buildings campus south of the city centre.
The 50m2 canopy comprises 1200mm x 600mm US cherry veneer plain wood planks, some containing smoke detectors and movement-sensitive lighting, with a Vector edge detail which gives a narrow 6mm reveal for a sleek, monolithic look, within a Prelude 24 XL2 grid.
This is complemented in the same room by three rows of 600mm x 600mm plain US cherry MicroLook lay-in tiles, installed between plasterboard, on a Prelude 15 XL2 grid, as well as 16m2 of these tiles in circulation areas.
In addition, the main lecture theatre, which is one of the early purpose-built concrete lecture theatre structures and Grade B listed, featured 180m2 of Armstrong’s 1200mm x 600mm Ultima OP tiles installed on a Prelude XL2 grid. These mineral tiles perform acoustically to Sound Absorption Class A.
The £330,000 project was the subject of a “Pimp my school” project to improve the student social/break out study space. This resulted in the opening up of a larger room to create an additional such space.
There were also cosmetic improvements to teaching rooms and toilets, with a third phase comprising the removal of a small unused servitor’s box and lobby to accommodate a mobile staffed coffee bar and some lounge seating. Armstrong Ceilings were supplied by SIG Interiors and installed in the 850m2 single-storey 1950/60s concrete crosswall building by Universal Ceilings in two phases, culminating by March 2014.
Adrian Cavaye, an interior designer at the university’s design group in estates and buildings, has used Armstrong Ceilings for the past 27 years, most recently on a refurbishment of the Edinburgh College of Art.
He said: “We specified Armstrong for their range of timber tile and grid solutions. There were no set performance or aesthetic requirements but the finish quality was as I would expect from Armstrong.”
He added: “We made use of an under-used room to increase the student space by incorporating some group discussion desks, individual study/laptop work desks and lounge seating. It was this area primarily that I wanted to soften the feel of the ceiling by incorporating a flyover timber veneered ceiling.
“This creates a more defined, quieter work area and softens the feel with the wood finish. The lay-in grid tiles were set in a standard MicroLook grid but the contrast in finish between a plastered ceiling and wood always works.”
Armstrong Ceilings ring the changes at a new church
Armstrong Ceilings ring the changes at a new church
A replacement church in Buckinghamshire features Axiom canopies from Armstrong Ceilings.
Ceiling canopies from Armstrong were specified for a new community church for their aesthetics, acoustics and green credentials.
Some 52 of Armstrong’s Axiom Classic square canopies (1.8m x 1.8m) and 14 triangular ones at half that size, each comprising white mineral Dune Supreme tiles within a 24mm Prelude exposed grid, feature over 1,500m2 of the stunning auditorium of King’s Church, Amersham.
Built over a year at a cost of £2.8million by main contractor Jarvis Construction, the new church is located on the 2.69-hectare site of a disused school playing field. Its leaders had been searching for a larger site for their church for some years and submitted a joint planning application with CALA Homes.
Architects Byrom Clark Roberts were briefed with designing a landmark building that had a civic presence but did not look like a church, even incorporating a paved café forecourt as public space. It is also future-proof, capable of accommodating a balcony if required in future.
As well as traditional worship, the 375-seat auditorium had to be able to cater for activities including concerts, conferences and banqueting. And it was used as the latter at the celebration service in November 2013.
Byrom Clark Roberts had used Armstrong Ceilings on a church before – the LifeChurch in Sale, Manchester, but the one for King’s Church was developed to incorporate LED lighting into some of the square canopies.
Architect Ian Caveen said: “I came up with the ceiling cloud idea when designing a church in Leeds in 2007. We had used Armstrong Ceilings on a previous scheme but for this one, sustainability was a key issue, so the Axiom canopy was a given.”
King’s Church is served by ground source heat pumps for low-temperature hot water heating throughout, underfloor heating and heat recovery ventilation that allows more than 70% of the heat to be recovered.
Ian Caveen added: “The auditorium is mechanically ventilated and acoustically attenuated to reduce the noise impact on the surrounding housing. Noise break out from the auditorium was a key design constraint which required careful design consideration, particularly to the roof, windows and mechanical services. There was also a budget for the ceiling which could not be exceeded, with value-engineering workshops done at key stages through the design process.”
The Axiom Classic canopies are an easily relocatable modular system comprising an aluminium grid with a choice of highly light-reflective mineral, metal or soft fibre tiles manufactured from up to 82% recycled content.
Specified either at initial design stage, as at King’s Church, or as a quick-fix refurbishment solution, they help to reduce reverberation time and noise levels and increase speech intelligibility. They also allow specifiers to play with different planes and levels to conceal and co-ordinate with services such as the LED lighting.
They were supplied by distributor CCF Manchester and installed at graduated heights at the steel-framed King’s Church by Conron Ceilings who had a team of between two and five working on site for two months.
