Leeds College of Music
Quarry Hill, Leeds
The main focus of this fast-track project was to provide a lightweight partitioning system, requiring high levels of sound attenuation, and be cost effective without devaluing the performance criteria.
The challenge was to meet the high levels of sound insulation required for the music rooms to maintain acoustic privacy to clients' expectations and to withstand the normal wear and tear associated with such areas.
The solution was to construct 70mm GypWall CLASSIC metal stud partitions, lined with a double layer of Gyproc SoundBloc on either side. The complete system, with Isover Acoustic Partition Roll in the cavity, provided a fast-track and lightweight but robust partitioning system, offering high levels of sound insulation on a nominal overall thickness
