Baxtergate 

Specification

This project now delivers enhanced recreation facilities to the local community, including many  restaurants & a multi screen cinema complex.

The design criteria for this Cinema & Retail project was complex.
Acoustic measures were required to ensure minimal levels of both sound break out & sound break in.
In order to satisfy the design criteria in the most efficient manner, Britannia employed Sound Research Laboratories in order to carry out multiple tests on various constructions.

The Final Roof construction surpassed the design criteria whilst also returning significant savings for the client against the specified system.

The Aluminium Standing Seam Roofing was supported on a combination of metal and GRP spacers.
Rockwool Insulation was used for its acoustic properties as well as thermal however, the majority of acoustic performance was achieved using a combination of Cement Particle Boards & a Rubber Polymer Membrane which was originally developed for use in the Automotive industry.
Britannia delivered this complex multi phase project within budget and on time.
