About the project
Burgess CEP worked directly with The Financial Times as they undertook an extensive refurbishment to their offices at Southwark Bridge, London. One of their key considerations was the acoustic performance they needed to achieve in such a busy office environment. A concealed grid system using our clip-in tiles was specified and a micro-perforation pattern chosen for both aesthetic and acoustic purposes.
In the large open plan office areas sound and absorption is critical due to noise levels created and footfall. We were able to achieve high levels of sound absorption via the introduction of mineral wool pads into the back of the tiles, providing a Noise Reduction Coefficient rating of 0.95 as well as 27db sound attenuation rating.
In the areas where there were partitioned offices, sound attenuation became a more critical importance due to room to room privacy and comfort requirements.Via the introduction of our SRA Acoustic insert we were able to provide high levels of room to room privacy combined with appropriate levels of sound absorption, thereby dealing with both major acoustic problems in one product.
The SRA board achieves 41db sound attenuation ratings & 0.65 NRC.
