For a new £12.4 million secondary teaching block in South Wales, this 19-month project needed to realise an institution fit for the 21st century – as well as meeting BREEAM “Excellent” and BIM Level 2 standards.
Outstanding Acoustic Performances
Based in Brno, Masaryk University — the second-largest university in the Czech Republic — is a highly prestigious institution delivering excellence across a range of faculties, from law to medicine, science to the arts. A project to reconstruct the Masaryk University Auditorium, therefore, needed to blend the practicality of a learning environment with the prestige of its history and achievements.
Using 100m² of METAL R-H 215 Extramicro Perforated panels with acoustic fleece, the project team created a ceiling with a modern, elegant and minimalist design that perfectly complements the surrounding architecture. Balancing this, the solution also provided outstanding acoustic performance — crucial for an auditorium space. With this system in place, not only was conversational noise attenuated and absorbed, but sound could be easily directed from the front to the back — making it easy for professors, lecturers and guest speakers to hear and be heard.
