Improving acoustics for a Concert Hall
08 April 2016
A range of British Gypsum systems have been used in the refurbishment of the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, the new home of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (RSNO).
The aim of the project was to create a comfortable working environment for the new headquarters of the renowned symphony orchestra.
In particular, the RSNO needed soundproofed spaces for rehearsals and performances to take place, so an acoustic interior lining solution was required to meet its specific needs.
Over 6,000 square metres of British Gypsum plasterboard was installed, including Gyproc SoundBloc, which was used on the walls and partitions in the practice areas, concert hall, recording studios and circulation areas.
GypWall Classic and GypWall Audio partition systems and CasoLine MF Ceilings systems were used to meet the project’s performance requirements. Alongside Gyproc SoundBloc Activ'Air, Gyproc FireLine was used for increased fire protection in the public and communal areas of the building to help meet building regulations under the Fire Safety (Scotland) regulations 2006.
