Ecophon - Modernisation Of University Teaching Facilities


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Ecophon
: 30 May, 2007  (New Product)
Currently at the centre of the UK's largest student accommodation development, Lancaster University is also undergoing modernisation of its teaching facilities with Ecophon Limited being the supplier of the ceiling systems used for recent refurbishment work.
EPIC (Ecophon Partnership in Contracting) approved installer CF Ceilings utilised Ecophon's Focus and Focus Wing products to create a series of floating ceilings in teaching spaces and administrative areas; creating an advanced new medical school at the hill top campus where trainee doctors can practice clinical techniques on artificial tissue.

While the work was carried out under the guidance of the university's Estates Management department, Preston based Wilson Mason Architects was the practice responsible for the design work.

The Senior Architect, Mr Derek Southworth, comments: 'Although we have employed Ecophon tiles for a number of projects in the past we had never tried the rafts. Having seen some technical literature on the product we decided the appearance would be appropriate for Lancaster's Clinical Anatomy Learning Centre.

'While the rafts feature in the two large training rooms and the reception, we used regular ceiling grids for areas like offices, toilets, locker rooms and changing spaces. Ecophon products can be seen right around the refurbished building. We are very pleased with the outcome and the client also likes it.'
