Project Description The Problem Hotham Primary School contacted Resonics to provide an acoustic solution to its sports hall following complaints of a harsh noise environment. Comprised of hard, reflective wall, ceiling and floor surfaces, the hall was experiencing a lengthy reverberation time, amplified by the noise of groups of students and sport activity. Imperative was the need to reinforce the robust, high impact construction of the hall, to continue to [...]

St Nicholas CE Primary School, London

Project Description The Problem With a series of rooflights and plasterboard walls, the reverberation time in this student multi purpose classroom and hall was uncomfortably long before our installation. Student density, and a quiet learning environment meant that noises made in the space were particularly disruptive to students and their learning. The Solution Key was to reduce the reverberation time in the space to a level that would negate the noise propelled [...]

Project Details The Problem This lecture hall in Plymouth University's Roland Levinsky building was undergoing a refurbishment when we were called in to provide an acoustic solution. The lecture hall featured hard plasterboard finishes, which when coupled with the Audio Visual system in the room, required some sound absorption to make it acoustically comfortable. The Solution BAUX acoustic tiles were specified by the project's architects, Rock Townsend from London. The tiles were [...]

Bartlett Architecture School, London

By |2019-09-11T10:15:40+00:00July 18th, 2017|

Project Description The Problem The workshop is possibly one of the noisiest spaces imaginable in a school. Noise generated from heavy machinery and other noise from workspaces can be detrimental to concentration and auditory health. This workshop at the The Bartlett School Of Architecture was experiencing this very issue due to the hard, reflective surfaces in the area. Imperative was the need to get the reverberation time in the [...]

St Georges University, London

Project Description The Problem Resonics was contacted by St Georges University in London to provide and acoustic solution in one of its auditoriums. The project posed a number of challenges: Reverberation time is of particular importance in auditoriums where sound travels long distances before bouncing off walls multiple times. Absorbing excess reverberation greatly assists the concentration of those listening in the space. The Solution Using individual wrapped fabric panels, Resonics [...]

Phoenix Group, Hertfordshire

Project Details The Problem Acoustics should always be a consideration for schools, particularly classrooms, to create healthy learning environments. For schools for deaf and hard of hearing students, acoustics are imperative. This classroom at Phoenix Group For Deaf Children’s facilities in Hertfordshire was experiencing a clamorous sound environment, owing largely to prominent windows and plasterboard walls. For the hard of hearing children, the echo in the space needed to [...]

Darrell Primary School, London

By |2020-10-29T16:02:47+00:00January 23rd, 2017|

Project Details The Problem This multi-purpose school hall in Richmond, London was being used for noisy activities such as assemblies, sport, performances and other school events. Without acoustic treatments, the noisy hall was compromising some activities taking place in the hall. The Solution We installed a combination of acoustic ceiling panels and wall panels to tackle the excessive reverberation in the space. The ceiling panels were installed between [...]

Strodes College, Egham

By |2019-12-02T15:56:40+00:00January 27th, 2017|

Project Details The Problem A bustling-multi-use space for students, this dining room and meeting area was acoustically uncomfortable with its highly reverberant surfaces. Floor to ceiling windows and floorboards was propelling conversational noise in the dining room around the busy space. Staff and students were complaining of severe auditory comfort when using the room before our intervention. The Solution Our calculations deemed that the space needed over 30 [...]

Chantry Academy, Ipswich

Project Details The Problem As part of a large refurbishment of this academy in Suffolk, Resonics was contracted to provide acoustic solutions for a number of areas – including a large circulation space. The large corridor was a bustling space of movement – with students congregating and moving between the sports hall, refectory, auditorium and cafeteria. The sheer number of people moving through the circulation space was making it an [...]
