An ambitious £37.5 million Littleport complex comprising special educational needs (SEN) and primary schools, an Academy and a leisure centre is nearing completion. Rockfon ceilings, baffles and wall panels are installed throughout. Rockfon products were chosen because they offer excellent sound control, Class A1 fire safety, durability and are environmentally friendly.
The complex is one of the largest undertaken by contractor Morgan Sindall. “This is a community-focused project which provides not just a positive learning environment that can enhance the educational experience for children of all ages and abilities, but is also an inclusive hub with great leisure facilities for everyone to enjoy.”
Special Educational Needs
When building schools suitable for children with special educational needs, more attention needs to be paid to the acoustics. Installing sound absorbent finishes which offer the highest classification of sound absorption (Class A) in the learning areas helps create the appropriate sound environment.
We worked closely with SCL Ceilings Contracts Manager Andy Golding. “The modern, innovative design of the school buildings provided us with a number of challenges. Rockfon helped us to overcome these. Their products met the specifications for each area including acoustic requirements and installation restrictions. They also achieve the look the architect wanted, contributing to the success of the project.”
