Morgan Sindall were awarded the main contract for a £70 Million project to transform Lambeth Borough Town Hall in Brixton. The New Town Hall now includes an additional 1,022 sq metres of Borough Council Office space. This in turn is forecast to provide a saving of £4.5 million per year by reducing 14 of the Councils core office buildings down to just 2 brighter and lighter buildings.

The remit for the New Town Hall was to provide a more peaceful working environment where council workers were not disturbed by noise levels and reverberation issues. As an example, where poor sound absorption and poor reverberation control is not resolved, staff members often experience problems with concentration, fatigue and headaches so practical work is always disturbed instead of being a pleasant working space.

UK Acoustic Systems were asked to provide technical assistance and a Installation service to complete the installation of Monolithic Absorb-R GypLine αw to the existing soffits and ceilings. Soundis Absorb-R GypLine αw was selected with a Semi-Textured Finish to soffits and a Semi-Smooth Finish to public spaces and council meeting rooms.

Morgan Sindall have monitored progress with pre-completion quality results and on site satisfaction reports which indicate that UK Acoustic Systems have exceeded the expectations of all involved with this project. Morgan Sindall also highlighted and rewarded UK Acoustic Systems for Health & safety performance throughout the contract.
