SAS International was chosen to provide bespoke architectural metalwork solutions for the headquarters of the independent health charity, The King’s Fund. Completed earlier this year, and working with Architects Panter Hudspith, ceiling rafts and acoustic wall panelling played a major part in maximising the available space and meeting acoustic targets.
As well as providing a facility for the work of the King’s Fund itself, the HQ operates as a venue for external meetings and conferences. Ceiling rafts incorporating acoustic absorption material, luminaires, diffusers and service troughs for conference AV equipment helped maximise the ceiling height, particularly above the stage area.
Wall panelling, incorporating a specially made bulkhead profile surround, was specified to provide additional acoustic treatment in the auditorium and adjoining lobby area.
Ceiling tiles within the ceiling rafts feature a lift and tilt access system allowing easy access for service maintenance. In addition, a special circular collar to conceal the speaker casings was incorporated in the design of the rafts.
