Heradesign from Knauf AMF has been installed in the state-of-the art Engineering Hall at City of Glasgow College’s new Riverside Campus.

The expansive Engineering Hall is a multi-functional environment with machinery operating and tutorials running at the same time. Heradesign ceiling panels were chosen because they comply with ‘Building Regulation BB93: Acoustic design of schools’ and provide Class A sound absorption to help control the ambient sound level and increase speech intelligibility, helping to create a productive learning environment.

Heradesign is manufactured from sustainably sourced wood-wool, has a naturally textured woven surface and is available in fibres ranging from 1–3mm thick. Its surface can be colour matched to many custom colours: Heradesign in light grey was specified to fit the hall’s design aesthetic.
