New beginnings for The Space Field Lane community centre

New beginnings for The Space Field Lane community centre

Armstrong Ceilings have provided their ultra-green Dune eVo ceiling tiles for The Space Field Lane, a community centre in West Yorkshire.

This comes a year after it won Armstrong Ceiling Solutions' competition for an admirable cause to win a new ceiling.

Dune eVo is fully recyclable, providing class-leading aesthetics and improved acoustic performance through a new surface which is both brighter and smoother.

It is also the first ceiling system in the industry to gain Cradle To Cradle accreditation.

The project was entered for Armstrong's eVoNewBeginnings competition by the project's coordinator Neil Hardaker of Pickles Architecture in Brighouse.

The competition prize was up to 250m2 of Dune eVo tiles and grid plus up to three days of free installation by a member of Armstrong's national network of approved Omega installers.

Open to any non-commercial project in the UK and Ireland that serves a community, it was judged by two internal and one external judge, with the winner being the project they thought most deserved help.

Centre trustee Mary Green said: "It was a tremendous opportunity. We were very anxious we wouldn't succeed because we had to value engineer our project so many times but here was an opportunity to add value to the project with such a super ceiling.”

“The installation went really, really well and really quickly. All the Armstrong people we have been involved with have been super, very friendly very helpful and generally excellent to work with.”

“The £16,000 value of this ceiling was really important to us. Using an ultra-green ceiling tile like Dune eVo was really important to us because we have tried, with everything we have done in the centre, to use materials which are environmentally friendly."

In a letter to Armstrong, Mary added: "I wanted to write personally to thank you all so much for the New Beginning you gave to our building and our project and to our community. The contractors have now moved out and we have moved in and it is all so fabulous.”
