Noise reverberation cancellation case study

Noise reverberation cancellation in Emlyn Hughes House offices with SonaSpray fc

Emlyn Hughes House is designed to provide drama both from the exterior and interior.  The Gateway Project was intended to represent the history of the town by resembling a submarine, construction of which is the towns primary industry. 

Bowker Sadler Partnership designed to give the occupants as much natural light as possible by building one face of the building almost entirely from glass.  The buildings floors and ceilings are constructed from poured strengthened concrete slab, so combine this with the glass walls and thin carpet tiles and there will be problems with noise reverberation (echo) which will require a 100% effective noise reverberation cancellation product.

The main contractor, Leck Construction was looking for a way in which it could not only solve the noise reverberation problems, but give the bare concrete ceilings an attractive finish without the need for plaster board, suspended ceilings or numerous different trades, increasing the build time and cost.  They needed a noise reverb cancellation solution throughout the building.

The top floor has a grand double height office that rises with a beautiful curved ceiling by two meters with a mezzanine floor at the higher end.  It was essential to the architects that they did not compromise this internal design feature in spite of a potential noise reverb problem.

We were specified to apply SonaSpray fc acoustic decorative finish in arctic white.  This not only achieved excellent noise reverberation cancellation in one application, but prevented the need for further decorating of the concrete slab soffit.  Four large office spaces were transformed acoustically in one week creating a calm and inviting workspace.

The results - effective noise reverberation cancellation with a recycled and fire rated acoustic decorative finish.
