Scope of Works
The New £38 million Coed Pella four-storey 100,000 sq ft ultra-modern office building designed by AHR and is BREEAM excellent. The building can accommodate approximately 700 to 750 Conwy County Borough Council (CCBC) staff to provide the best possible support for the people and businesses of Conwy as it brings together a range of services for the first time.
The building boasts a full height atrium, meeting and training rooms, One Stop Shop, showers for staff, a bike room, and a car park for 354 vehicles. Sound Interiors undertook the installation of partitions, linings, column and beam encasement using British Gypsum products. The plasterboard ceilings included margins and bulkheads with raking British Gypsum Rigitone perforated boards 8/18Q following the roof line to maximise ceiling heights and provide a superb feature ceiling.
Within the main open plan and office areas the Class A suspended ceiling installed is an Armstrong lay-in tile and grid system using metal perforated tile with OP19 acoustic pad for high sound absorption and where necessary CMS Danskin Acoustic Wall panels to blend with the décor.
In the double height Reception area is Armstrong Optima L Canopy set lower than the plasterboard ceiling providing excellent sound absorption and light reflectance upon entering the space.
“Bowmer and Kirkland engaged with Sound interiors to carry out the Ceilings and Dryling on this prestige scheme the quality that was achieved was first class and the job finished on programme and to budget”.
