Acoustic Timber Panels & Fabric Baffles at UCLAN, Preston Campus.



UCLAN, Preston Campus is right at the heart of the city, just minutes away from its vibrant shopping centre, attractions and student nightlife. It’s home to a thriving international community of over 38,000 students and staff.

The Student Centre looks out over Adelphi Square – the new centrepiece of our stunning campus and one of the largest civic spaces to have been developed in England over the last 100 years. It will become an iconic gateway linking together the city and the University as well as a thriving hub for student and community events.

The campus’ £60 million Student Centre opened its doors in September 2021 providing students with a first-class advice and support services. That not only looked good, but also had the students and staff well being in mind.  As this was such a large open space, sound absorption requirements were paramount to unsure the centre was conducive to learning.

UK Acoustic Systems provided a cost competitive Supply & Installation service for the sound absorption requirements within the new UCLAN Student Centre (7,304 sqm) as well as the University Squares (8,440 sqm).

The sound absorption solutions included Absorb-R WoodTec Wall Slats and Absorb-R SofTone Ceiling Fabric Baffles.
We worked closely with our client, Bam Construction on all aspects of the project. The WoodTec Wall Slats are based on a fibre gypsum board which has excellent properties regarding both fire safety and acoustics. The slats are less sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity which results in 100% straight aligned slats over their full lifetime.
Project Value – £192k
