We were delighted to work with Mach Acoustics and Kier Construction on this large acoustic solution for Dyson at one of the new buildings at the Hullavington site - where the electric car development will continue.
This 100m long former aircraft hanger has been completely redesigned by Wilkinson Eyre to provide office and creative space for the engineers working on the cars' development.
The existing curved roof has been refurbished, but needed to be inspected regularly. Added to this was the requirement that we did not directly fix to the underside of the roof.
So we designed a system that instead spanned from beam to beam, thus not disturbing the thin 100 year old concrete, and provided the space for the inspection.
The panels are made from an acoustically clear glass fabric, combined with a BASF product fixed to the top fabric.The panels are all fire rated to class O.
The size of the panels, at 2.5m wide, helped with the installation procedure and allowed us to follow the roof line to keep the curve, something that the architect was very keen to maintain.
