Designed by highly acclaimed architects Rick Mather Architects and Conran and partners, the redevelopment project will breathe new life into the 1960s building transforming it into 82 one to five bedroom luxury apartments boasting a pool, spa and fitness complex with a total anticipated cost of £350 million. The project comprises of the major internal redevelopment of the 1960s building whilst retaining the original listed façade.
Given the central location of Centre Point, noise control during the demolition and redevelopment works is a key requirement. The client, John F Hunt, made an initial enquiry to RVTRentavent - an official SOUNDEX® distributor - in 2013 and, following a tender process, a tailor made SOUNDEX® solution was selected for the project and installed on site in April 2015.
In response to client brief, the SOUNDEX® R&D team designed and manufactured a bespoke fire and weather resistant acoustic barrier for this project. The quilts, that are free from any hazardous materials, were created in lines with the architect’s specifications and are independently tested and certified to BS7955 to enable suspension from the scaffold structure that surrounds the building. A total of 318 SOUNDEX® acoustic quilts currently encapsulate the Centre Point house to help sound proof the site whilst the major construction works continue.
“This has been a high profile and exciting project for SOUNDEX®,” explains Caleb Taylor, Global Sales & Marketing Manager. “The scale of the area that required the installation of acoustic quilts and the unique set of client requirements called for the creation of a bespoke acoustic solution. As the project progresses, we have been delighted with the positive feedback from the client and the effectiveness of
the products in reducing noise from this centrally located site.”
