SUPALINE decorative and SUPACOUSTIC acoustic panels feature predominantly throughout the Graduation Hall, a central striking feature in the redevelopment of the Central Courtyard precinct at the Macquarie University in Macquarie Park NSW.
The designers, Architectus, were briefed to include a vast multi-purpose hall as part of the largest element in the project, a new multi-level building. Addressing acoustics in the design of this large open space was essential but also important was to blend the visual elements used to compliment with the surrounding milieu of the campus.
A key requirement of the design was to achieve a clear span within the lower level of the building to accommodate the vastness of the Graduation Hall. This meant heavy solid timber linings were not an option as the structure would not withstand the weight. A lighter alternative was required.
Having worked with SUPAWOOD on many successful projects in the past, Architectus and the other stake holders turned to us for advice. Our technical team worked closely with all to formulate a solution by suppling samples, detailed shop drawings and prototypes for the linings.
