Controlling noise in rooms, buildings and other environments through acoustical construction is of prime importance when working on commercial construction projects. When working on any commercial construction project you should be aware of the regulatory standards relating to recommended design sound levels and reverberation times for building interiors.
Premis has delivered a number of refurbishment projects that have included acoustic sound treatments for lecture theatres, specialised medical and other areas. When working on the molecular lecture theatre at the University of Queensland St Lucia campus, the Premis team engaged a specialist contractor to repurpose the existing plastic shell chairs that were melted down and transformed into unique three dimensional features that are lit from behind.
The molten plastic forms were placed within the acoustic wall treatment for the dual purpose of reducing noise as well as a unique art feature. This project also incorporated perforated tiles and acoustic treatment in the ceiling.
