This large two-storey extension to Arunside Primary School provided an inclusive learning facility with several classrooms, a hall, an ICT hub and a large double height atrium space for open plan learning.
Working alongside the architects, we provided acoustic advice for the design of the building. The biggest challenge was to sufficiently control sound transfer through the double height atrium space. Detailed calculations were carried out to inform our client on the type, placement and area of acoustic absorption required to make the space a viable open-plan learning environment. This enabled the design of a teaching space which meets the architect’s design vision whilst simultaneously satisfying the requirements of the school and Building Control.
“Anderson Acoustics were very helpful throughout the design process for Arunside School using their experience to ensure we achieved the acoustic environment we needed. They worked as an integral member of the design team from the concept work through to detailed design and specifications. We have continued to employ Anderson Acoustics as our acoustic consultant for all school work.”
