ECOPHON SYSTEMS CHOSEN FOR CAMBRIDGE CASTLE SCHOOL Good acoustic performance and the availability of flexible systems, able to offer unusual design solutions, were identified as key reasons behind the specification of Ecophon suspended ceiling products for the construction of a new school in Cambridge, which is dedicated to the education of children with physical and learning difficulties. Known simply as the Castle School, the important new facility has been built on an existing site not far from Shire Hall, the headquarters of Cambridgeshire County Council whose Property and Asset Management department was responsible for the school’s design. Performance and acoustics were strong considerations in the selection of Ecophon ceilings for the project. On a budget, the department has to design for heavy usage and in all its specifications has used robust, high quality materials with certainty of performance. Acoustics are particularly important in a school like this – very often where children seem not be thriving in a school building it is because they are in an acoustic ‘dead spot’. Overall the project and installation went well and the school is very happy with the building. Ecophon approved contractor SCL Interiors installed the Ecophon systems and. Ecophon’s Flexiform was employed to create a wave-shaped ceiling over the hydrotherapy pool; an Ecophon Super G ceiling features in the gymnasium.
