The Project

Project: Great Ormond Street Hospital
Client: Skanska
Architect: Llewelyn Davies
Project worth: £300K
Product: Soundex AQ100

Great Ormond Street Hospital has been serving sick children since it first opened its doors in 1852. In the intervening 165 years, it’s grown to become one of the best-known and most respected centres of paediatric medicine in the world. As part of a multimillion-pound refurbishment of the hospital’s main Camden site, Solinear were called on to provide an acoustic louvre solution.

Working closely with Skanska and Llewelyn Davies, Solinear were asked to design, manufacture and install a product that would help reduce noise from a large amount of plant machinery on the hospital roof with weatherproof sections and colour-matched to previous construction works.

Solinear provided their Soundex AQ100 acoustic louvre screens in the form of the large sloping level 09 acoustic treatment panels. As the work took place on the roof, it meant working at height and collaborating closely with the main contractor’s scaffolder and on-site crane teams to install the products.

 

Solinear fitted over 1,000 square metres of their Soundex AQ100 acoustic screens with insulated blanking panels. They also went on to complete work on the project’s second phase, involving the construction of the Premier Inn Clinical Building, set to become part of the hospital’s Mittal Children’s Medical Centre. Project Manager, Dan Tongue commented: “It was a challenging but highly rewarding assignment.”
