LeighTechnology Academy designed by Architects BDP, has won plaudits for its sustainability and passive environmental comfort. This 1,500 pupil school specialises in technology and ICT, and SAS International supplied a number of acoustic solutions including wall panels, baffles and cross-talk attenuators to this flagship facility.
The building’s thermal mass is used extensively to eliminate the need for mechanical cooling. Bespoke cross talk attenuators were designed and installed between classrooms and corridors to allow for natural ventilation whilst minimising sound cross talk from room to room and control regenerated noise. BDP designed the attenuators and worked with SAS International to produce the desired form to achieve acoustic comfort and meet BB93 requirements.
Acoustic ceiling mounted baffles were specified in the open areas. They provide acoustic absorption while keeping the concrete soffit exposed for energy-efficient thermal mass heating and cooling.
Metal acoustic wall panels were also mounted at high level to facilitate further acoustic absorption.
