Tracing its history to a Grammar School founded in 1604 by King James I, Henley College offers over 50 high achieving ‘A’ level courses. Home to nearly 2,000 full-time students, Henley College decided it was time to improve their estate by implementing an acoustic board to reduce all the unnecessary footfall noises.

Not only was footfall noise to be reduced, but airborne noise needed to be tackled as well. The design had to be as discreet as possible, retaining the original character of the building, and allowing for future amendments to the building. Finally, all of this work had to be done to the unyielding deadlines of term times.

Working closely with Main Contractor, Bowmer & Kirkland, UK Acoustic Systems recommended the Soundis ChipPanel 28 system as the ideal solution for the 1,575m2 area. The ChipPanel 28 system was installed due to its high impact and airborne noise reduction, conforming to Robust Detail standards FFT5. Furthermore, at only 28mm thick, this shallow floating floor also minimises construction height allowing that extra space for any additional features the college may wish to add in the near future.
