Hunter Douglas was commissioned to create a ceiling for an £89 million state-of-the-art technology and research centre at the University of Strathclyde.
Glasgow-based architects BDP commissioned Hunter Douglas, a global manufacturer of architectural products, to design and create a wood ceiling for the Technology and Innovation Centre, which is now home to researchers, engineers and project managers from academia and industry.
Hunter Douglas supplied 836m2 of solid wood grill ceiling in 3-130-20-98 module. Made from American White Oak, it was treated in Hunter Douglas’s Magma Firestop treatment to meet European Fireclass B-S2-D0 and the stringent Scottish fire regulations.
The main architectural challenge was the integration of lights and mechanical services into the ceiling system. It was designed so that lights and services disappeared behind the slatted ceiling, which meant some elements had to be set flush between, rather than behind, the ceiling.
