Timber Wall Panelling System at Herman Miller HQ in Melksham, Wiltshire

Construction of Herman Miller’s New HQ and distribution centre began in 2014, being the biggest single investment in the town, and creating 200 jobs in the local area.


Timber Sound Absorption Panels

Designed by leading architect Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, the challenge for the design of PortalMill was to combine activities from previous facilities. The L-shaped factory floor allows for the flow of materials through the building. To support people from numerous teams, the building’s office spaces were designed to provide open and flexible spaces allowing for greater collaboration.

The 170,000 sq metre warehouse project required a sound absorption solution. Timber Sound Absorption panels were selected and were fitted to the walls of the office area, meeting rooms, restaurant and general circulation space. The acoustic wall panels were specified for innovative design and their high sound absorption acoustic performance.

The timber wall panels are either slotted or grooved, providing impeccable sound absorption performances, but also ensuring a high class aesthetic finish and feel with a choice of timber types and finishes.

Herman Miller provide “Class A” products and are renowned for great quality and therefore required a sound absorption solution to comply with their own brand style. Soundis fitted perfectly to the Herman Miller specification throughout the installation space being treated and installed by UK Acoustic Systems.
