PROJECT SUMMARY: Acoustic Solutions

Lowry Construction completed the Roe Valley Integrated Primary School development in Limavady. The new school, a £6.3 million investment funded under the Fresh Start Agreement, was designed to provide state-of-the-art facilities for pupils, staff, and the wider community.

The project includes seven classrooms, two resource areas, a multipurpose hall, library facilities and various other essential spaces, all housed in a unique, curved architectural design.

THE CHALLENGE

One of the key challenges faced during this project was the implementation of the curved design of the school, particularly in the construction of the classroom blocks and multipurpose hall. This design required exceptional precision and innovative solutions to ensure that all elements, from foundations to roofing, aligned perfectly.

Additionally, the need for high-quality acoustics in these educational spaces presented another layer of complexity, demanding a ceiling solution that not only met aesthetic requirements but also provided superior sound absorption.

OUR SOLUTIONS

SDG supplied the VoglFuge®12/25Q acoustic ceiling boards for this project. The VoglFuge® system is renowned for its high precision and reliability in installation, which was crucial given the project’s stringent requirements. The system’s unique joint technology allows for quick and efficient mounting of panels, significant time savings, and maximum crack resistance.

By opting for the VoglFuge® system, ARD Contracts (Interior Fit-Out Contractor) could ensure that the acoustic ceilings were installed quick and easy without the need for filler, reducing dust and moisture, and achieving a flawless finish that enhances both function and aesthetics.

Advantages of the VoglFuge® System:

  • Quick Mounting and Installation
  • Superior Acoustic Performance
  • Maximum crack resistance
  • Less dust and moisture (No filler required)
  • Quickest joint finishing with the VoglFuge strip
  • Always complete with the VoglFuge system kit

THE RESULTS

The construction of the new Roe Valley Integrated Primary School has been a significant milestone, showcasing the collaborative efforts of various stakeholders to create a contemporary educational environment. The VoglFuge® 12/25Q acoustic ceiling boards supplied by SDG played a pivotal role in overcoming the project’s challenges, particularly in addressing the acoustic requirements and design of the curved structures.

The successful application of the VoglFuge® 12/25Q acoustic ceiling boards at Roe Valley Integrated Primary School highlights SDG’s commitment to providing high-quality, innovative solutions that meet the demands of modern construction projects.
