Project Summary

As our knowledge of the impact of the correct acoustics in different environments grows it is no surprise that the education sector is one area where you can’t afford to be complacent.

At SDG our knowledge of the impact of the correct acoustics in different environments grows it is no surprise that the education sector is one area where you can’t afford to be complacent.

The Challenge

At SDG we know that insufficient acoustic absorption can have a detrimental impact on the ability of a student to focus and learn in an educational environment.

Our clients McAdam Design, HSU Construction and Tracey Bros understand this, and engaged with us at the early stages of construction of St Patricks Academy in Dungannon.

Our Solution

SDG manufactured bespoke panels to the architects designs which enhanced the aesthetics of the large open plan areas as well as managing the acoustic vibrations that an area like this can create.

The panels came in various shapes and sizes but were all designed with the intention of creating a comfortable space to congregate in for the schools students.

The Results

Ciaran Donnelly, Head of Technical at SDG explained, “We have a strong relationships with McAdam, HSU Construction and Tracey Bros Ltd and it was great to be able to build on that at St Patrick’s Academy. Our ability to offer solutions and innovative products to our clients is borne from our desire to enhance the spaces we work in and our inquisitiveness when looking to new products for the markets we work in. We are always learning ourselves and this allows us to be a better partner to our customers.”

Acoustics is a major part of our business and with strategic partnerships such Vogl with their unique perforated acoustic gypsum ceilings, Décor with their acoustic timber ceiling & wall baffles and our extensive range of panels and baffles for all area types we can certainly assist and develop a solution to meet any demand. Our team can assist with the survey & calculations required to decipher the correct solution to the area in question which range from classrooms, sports halls, offices, commercial spaces, retail spaces, hospitality and even residential.
