The Warwick Arts Centre involved a complete upgrade to the original building as well as adding a new-build that houses three HD digital auditoria, a large ground floor gallery to exhibit contemporary art, sculpture and photography, plus a spacious new-look foyer.

UKAS were contracted to install an Acoustic Fabric panelling system to reduce reverberation and an Acoustic Flooring system to provide anti vibration within three Auditorium Centres.

Within all three of the auditoriums of the newly constructed Arts Centre at Warwick University UK Acoustic Systems installed Soundis Systems providing solutions to both the Sound Absorption and Soundproofing requirements. In relation to the Sound Absorption we installed Soundis Absorb-R SofTone Panels (commonly known as acoustic fabric panels) These were installed on both the side walls along with the back wall of each auditorium providing full coverage of the walls enhancing the performance of the product improving the clarity of sounds emitted within the auditoriums

The second requirement within each of the auditoriums was to provide a solution to the Soundproofing which is where we provided a Soundis Cinesystem – Dry. This system allowed us to provide great acoustic & antivibration performance whilst ensuring the installation was quick to allow us to achieve the programme dates due to the system comprising of elastomeric isolator blocks overlaid with Soundis Dry Screed Panels. The fact of this system being completely dry with no concrete or screed elements negates the need for long drying time potentials causing delays on these types of projects.
