Established in 1875 for training Primary Teachers, St. Patrick’s College appointed RMJM and Taylor Architects to create a new development that would bring learning into the 21st Century.

The style of the fit-out has a bold industrial aesthetic with raw concrete, metal and glass used to offset the multi-coloured furniture and paintwork. SAS600 Rafts with grey mesh were specified in the library and classroom spaces to provide acoustic absorption and continue the metallic theme. The floating raft solution was also chosen to provide an open soffit aesthetic and support the industrial look of the project.

Large SAS150 tiles were used in the conference and lecture halls with integrated diffusers. Special sized panels were created to aid installation and make the ceiling modules adapt to the varying room shapes and sizes. In the public areas, grey SAS205 tiles were specified to create floating modules for M&E services in corridors and full-height spaces.

SAS and Castle Ceilings Ltd have a strong business partnership in Ireland delivering high end and complex projects on time and within budget.
