Michael Laird Architects
Client Leading Technology Company
With offices all over the world, including, North America, Asia and mainland Europe, a world leading technology company chose the historical Quartermile in picturesque Edinburgh for their new UK base. The audio company, who provide innovative audio and voice IC products across the entire audio signal chain, took over 70,000 sq ft of the newly regenerated space, refitting the 4 floors to their precise requirements.
Michael Laird Architects approached Planet Partitioning to provide high acoustic partitioning screens and doors, across all 4 floors of the scheme, with an extra 5th floor secured upon completion, as a result of the impressive works Planet provided.
With audio being the Client’s line of work, the office space not only included meeting rooms, open plan office space and break out areas, but also ‘Jam’ rooms and recording studios. Stringent acoustic attenuation was therefore called for, with PURE100 double glazed partitioning screens and IsoPro doors being used throughout the office and meeting areas, and PURE100 single glazing used in the break out spaces. By using the PURE100 range throughout, the scheme ensured the head and base details remained uniform across all 4 floors.
For the Jam rooms and recording studios, Planet recommended specialist PURE200 triple glazed screens, which can achieve staggering acoustics of 64dB Rw, ensuring workers wouldn’t be disturbed while staff ‘rock out’!
