SUPAWOOD’s SUPACOUSTIC NCK floating acoustic panels form a floating ceiling feature in the innovative office fit-out for AECOM, located in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley. This multi-award winning fit-out by BVN was aimed at creating a modern open environment over 5 levels to accommodate the client’s entire staff from 8 Brisbane locations, merging them into one productive workplace.

The communal rather than territorial approach to the workspace required large voids to be cut through the existing building to create a unified space over all five levels, providing a sense of connectivity and transparency. However, this open design posed sound reverberation problems throughout, for which a simple acoustic panel noise reduction solution was sought. The product also needed to work around existing fixtures and other interruptions in the newly created ceiling expanse.

SUPACOUSTIC NCK floating acoustic ceiling panels addressed these needs perfectly.

SUPACOUCTIC NCK acoustic ceiling panels were supplied as individual prefinished, free-floating, acoustic panels which were then mounted in rows running the full length of the upper interior ceiling to give an extended dimension to the space. As well as dressing the noise reverberation, the panels also hid services above while leaving full access to the ceiling cavity.

Finished in a warm SUPAVENEER Plantation Oak natural timber veneer, and suspended to float against a black background, the acoustic panels enhance the ceiling space as well as complement the natural timber finishes found elsewhere in the interior décor.

The design team was required to ensure that all materials used within the workplace be sourced from renewable and ecologically sound suppliers. SUPACOUSTIC NCK is FSC certified and met the strict criteria specified by the client.
