Project goals: Reduce noise levels and allow visitors with sensory disabilities to enjoy the Winchester Science Centre.
Due to the centre being constructed from concrete, steel and glass it offers panoramic views of the South Downs National Park. With an abundance of hard surfaces, meant that sounds bounced around the building and created a constant noise and was bothersome for many visitors but overwhelming for those with sensory disabilities.
From a calming Baffle wave installation above the welcome area to fun pink Acoustic panels over the café to an exclusively designed acoustic tree with Ecophon Freedom leaves shaped like those of the English Oak, each set of acoustics focus on solving sound problems, improving ambient noise and providing an aesthetically pleasing environment for visitors.
Ecophon provided many of the different materials inc.
Gypsum also installed Wooley Shepard clouds and relocated the £1m glider exhibition.
With the challenge of working heights up to 15m Gypsum operatives had additional training to operate Spider lifts to access the works from a Mezz floor build up.
