The Houldsworth Building at Leeds University is an acoustically treated teaching facility, and it showcases the Topakustik 9/2M (aw 0.8, absorption class B, NRC 0.85) in a factory sprayed white finish.
Having to meet the conditions of a lecture theatre where intelligible speech is vital, the acoustic treatment needs to be correct. The acoustic conditions should be the same whether a student is sat in the middle of row three or the back corner. To much absorption and the room would feel dead with a lack of atmosphere, not enough absorption and the reverberation on the sides and rear of the room would be unbearable.
GSS designed this superb lecture theatre incorporating our Topakustik 9/2M for the ceiling and wall. The fantastic finish was installed by Titan (Horbury Group) on behalf of Galliford Try installed the Topakustik product between the plaster board sections.
