Armstrong Ceilings help transform the multi-storey Parsons Tower

An unparalleled range of acoustic ceiling systems from one manufacturer - Armstrong - has helped transform a 1970s tower of teaching into an "exciting and stimulating learning environment to reflect 21st Century education". The £13million refurbishment of the 11-storey Parsons Tower which was built in 1973, shortly after the amalgamation of the College of Further Education and Technical College to form Newcastle College, features multiple material ceiling systems in areas ranging from the main canteen through the lecture hall to a bespoke children’s AV space.

The 7,000m2 of Armstrong systems used at Newcastle College include Axal Vector metal lay-in tiles, Dune Max Tegular, Parafon Hygien and black Nevada Board mineral tiles, black Mesh metal tiles, B-H 300 metal planks, MicroLook 16 microperforated metal tiles and Optima L canopies. In addition, Armstrong’s Axiom Vector profiles provided a seamless transition between plasterboard, other acoustic finishes and Axal Vector metal tiles.

Sean Gallagher, associate at regular Armstrong specifiers Red Box Architecture said Armstrong's products "represent good value for money and give optimum acoustic performance combined with long-term durability and low maintenance which are essential factors for large educational establishments". The Armstrong systems were supplied by SIG Interiors Tyneside and installed over eight months by Omega contractor Bill Mordue Interiors. "The client is delighted with the end result,” said Sean.
