The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is located in the heart of the busy metropolis and enrols over 45,000 students across it's nine faculties and schools. Built as a 5 Star Green Star building, the Faculty of Science and Graduate School of Health building provides a range of spaces for collaborative learning and focused research.
Designed to attract the next generation of world-leading scientists, the aesthetic of this new build is dramatic and contemporary. SAS150 clip-in acoustic ceilings were specified throughout the research labs. With a concealed grid, the architect chose to leverage the flexibility of the system and off-set the tiles to create an eye-catching pattern not usually seen in education spaces. With Class A acoustic absorption, the system actively reduces the noise of machinery and equipment providing a serene environment for study and focus. Essential for rooms with cutting-edge technology requirements, the system provides easy swing down access and bespoke apertures to ensure hardware and connectivity can be maintained.
SAS205 hook-on ceilings were used in the corridors of the University. A popular product for learning spaces of all ages, this corridor system is hard-waring for busy environments and provides Class A acoustic absorption and insulation to avoid noise transfer to connected study spaces. As before, BVN architects made their own mark with this systems by specifying the tiles in a black RAL polyester powder coat finish to create a dramatic and inviting space for students and faculty staff.
