Case Study - UWS LANARKSHIRE CAMPUS
Product: Acoustic Linear Timber Ribs
Client: FES Limited
The University of the West of Scotland’s launched ambitious plans to relocate into a new £110m campus in Lanarkshire, 2 miles away from the current Victorian building.
The relocation of the campus was tasked to achieve a modern new build environment, “to develop a truly inspirational and world-class University campus fit for existing and future students.” – Prof Craig Mahoney, Principal.
Gustafs Linear System was specified for their acoustical performance of Class A NRC and robust material. The Timber linear ribs are based on a fibre gypsum board which has excellent properties regarding both fire safety and acoustics.
The rib is less sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity which results in 100% straight aligned Ribs over their full lifetime, regardless of humidity and temperature changes.
UK Acoustic Systems installed the timber acoustic ribs in the main foyer wall. In addition to the purely functional benefits to sound quality, the installation has been described as a work of art in its own right.
