Junckers have provided their solid maple flooring for Churchill College in Cambridge.
Cottrell + Vermeulen Architecture designed a new, bright and airy postgraduate accommodation, consisting of 35 new units.
The naturally pale tone of the maple floor is matched by joinery in birch faced plywood, to form a comfortable and welcoming space.
VA Hutchison Flooring fitted the solid wood floor over New Era acoustic cradles which provide an
impact sound reduction of 27dB.
The New Era acoustic system is height adjustable for use on structural concrete slabs, block and beam floors and almost any other type of sound, dry loadbearing base.
It also complies with Building Regulations for multi-occupancy residential buildings.
Building regulations set out minimum standards for impact and airborne sound through floors which apply to residential buildings and buildings converted to new uses, including hotels and care homes.
The flooring uses acoustic cradles with 10mm thick recycled rubber pads, factory-fitted to the underside.
Cradles are height adjustable using purpose-made packers, supporting laminated timber battens.
50mm thick mineral wool insulation is placed between the battens and Junckers 20.5mm or 22mm thick solid wood floorboards are fixed to the battens to complete the installation.
Junckers’ floor system specifications are available on NBS Plus and draft NBS clauses are available on request.
They also provide BIM Objects for all systems and ensure systems are guaranteed for 25 years when installed by a Junckers Approved Contractor.
