To create a monolithic ceiling in the new sports hall at Tisbury Community Campus near Salisbury, Armstrong's Metal T Clip F grid system was installed across 700m2, providing a downwards demountable solution for easy access to the ceiling void. This was complemented by 120m2 of anti-microbial BioGuard boards in the toilets and changing rooms and 1,540m2 of Sierra OP laminated mineral boards in other areas as their Class A acoustic performance helps with sound absorption (at 0.90aw).
The new sports hall, at what is also known as Nadder Community Campus, replaces an old leisure centre and is connected to the rear of the main campus facility with access into it from the main campus building. All the existing and new buildings are linked to provide a single-point access facility.
Designed by architects Kendall Kingscott, the Tisbury project comprised a mix of refurbishment and new build, the latter of which included the sports hall and fitness suite, to bring a variety of services onto a single site. These also included Sure Start, business incubation, library services, neighbourhood policing and 16+ education. There is also provision for a local pre-school provider to be accommodated on site.
Armstrong secured involvement with the project as a result of its value engineering and strong working relationship with the specialist sub-contractor GHT. Director Justin Knibb said:"Competitive pricing within the market, coupled with efficient response times along with a consistent level of customer service, means Nevill Long has always been one of our preferred suppliers."
