Armstrong Ceilings help an academy with a new hart
Armstrong Ceilings help an academy with a new hart
Mineral ceiling tiles and canopies from Armstrong were specified for a school's first new-build for almost 20 years for their aesthetics, acoustics and cost.
Some 22 Optima L white circle canopies and a total of 500m2 of Dune dB Tegular tiles on a Prelude 24mm grid, that was angled 45˚ in one area, were selected by Diocesan Architects for a new £1.2million sixth form centre at Hartsdown Academy in Margate, Kent.
The two-storey building at the front of the campus next to the entrance replaces a mobile classroom block which was at least 20 years old with a steel- and timber-framed structure comprising seven small classrooms, social and study space, and ICT suite. It also doubles as an adult education centre.
Diocesan Architects had to design to strict guidelines in terms of the centre's funding, with the building having to be delivered for £1,500 per m2, this being signed off by the EFA (Education Funding Agency) prior to a successful grant award to the school.
The Armstrong systems have been used throughout the 500m2, the circular Optima L canopies in the social space and the diagonal grid layout with Dune dB tiles in the student space specifically, with the Dune tiles in all other areas.
Ian Titherington, project coordinator at Diocesan Architects who are frequent specifiers of Armstrong Ceilings, said: "The canopies provide a visual talking point to the social area and reveal ductwork, cables and equipment that would otherwise be covered over.
"The existing building stock was very poor, with many temporary structures including mobiles inherited from other schools and commercial companies. As this was the first new build in the school for almost 20 years our brief was fairly simple. It had to be aesthetically pleasing and fit in the contractor's budget."
Installed by specialist sub-contractor Bagley Plastering Contractors for main contractor BEC Construction, the two Armstrong systems are manufactured from up to 80% recycled content and provide light reflectance of up to 87%.
The Optima L canopies were developed to provide a cost-effective designer solution for open areas, providing excellent sound absorption through their ability to absorb sound on both the front and the back of the system and so aid intelligibility and concentration. They are quick and easy to install under plasterboard ceilings, existing grid systems or exposed concrete soffits. The Dune dB tiles aid confidentiality due to their higher density which enables them to perform to 39dB.
Hartsdown executive principal Andy Somers said: "It is a great place for sixth formers to work and enjoy their learning experience. It has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere and is a comfortable place to study which is important for our young men and women who are preparing for the next step in their educational career including university, higher education, training, apprenticeships and employment."
The new sixth form block is part of ongoing expansion at the academy which also includes a new music learning centre with digital recording facilities, a community radio station where students learn broadcast and production skills, a 3G floodlit all-weather soccer pitch and a developing sports centre.
Armstrong Ceilings shows its global head for heights with United Airlines
Armstrong Ceilings shows its global head for heights with United Airlines
When global architects 3DReid were looking for a UK ceiling tile manufacturer, which was "critical" for the costing and timescale of their project, there was really only one option - Armstrong Ceilings.
But specifying Armstrong Ceilings, which has production facilities in Tyne n Wear, Stafford and Sittingbourne also came with a bonus, it being part of the global Armstrong World Industries group based in the US where 3DReid's client, United Airlines, is also based.
This enabled Armstrong's global Architectural Specialties team to deliver samples to the airline and advise them directly when it came to the complex ceiling design for the 2,000m2 United Global First Lounge the new Queen's Terminal (Terminal 2) at Heathrow airport.
This is one of two new United Airlines facilities at Heathrow's new Star Alliance terminal and gives testament to the airline's commitment to Heathrow as its hub for Europe. It reinforces their new design concept recently launched at Chicago O'Hare airport which aims to signpost passengers with distinct design elements which reflect the lounge's location.
The first carrier to operate out of the new terminal when it opened in June, United Airlines' brand is key to future lounges and 3DReid worked closely with Chicago-based practice Solomon Cordwell Buenz on designs for the interiors of the United Global First Lounge aimed at first and business class passengers.
Features include a long, sweeping bar, floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the airfield, and high-quality finishes throughout including a large Big Ben replica clock in the tea lounge section. The United Global First section had a bronze colour theme and the United Club section had a silver/chrome theme, both reflected in the ceiling choices.
Some 800m2 of Armstrong's Axiom Knife Edge 9290mm x 1200mm canopies with a mixture of perforated metal MicroLook 8 tiles in a pearl beige finish with fleece, the bespoke RH-225 hook-on ceiling system, also in pearl beige as well as brushed aluminium satin and signal white, and the Microperforated 600mm x 600mm S-Clip F swing-down tiles with fleece installed on the System 3000 concealed grid in signal white - were specified to complement this design.
3DReid's Felicity Hurling said there were a number of metallic finishes within the project and it had been critical that the ceiling tiles complemented the skirting, flooring, trims and sockets but Armstrong provided a number of iterations through design development and worked hard to achieve a finish that matched the client's design aspirations.
She said: "The ceiling layout is particularly complex, utilizing a number of ceiling finish levels and interfacing with joinery products. Additionally there are a number of access requirements from the ceiling due to the quantity of services and the final outcome achieved full void access without reducing the integrity of the aesthetic."
3DReid originally approached Armstrong due to their previous work with the practice. It was critical that they worked with a UK supplier to achieve the cost and programme requirements of the project as the construction programme was particularly tight, from July 2013 to May 2014, with the terminal opening in June 2014.
The added benefit of Armstrong being able to deliver samples and advise their clients directly had provided reassurance and a cohesive working environment.
The Armstrong systems were installed by HLS Installations for main contractor ISG Group.
