As well as concealing the void containing building services, the ceiling often has to provide a supporting role for airconditioning and lighting systems. Forman Commercial Interiors installed a complex system throughout 21 Queen Street.
A particular requirement of the project was to provide a modern system, designed with metric measurements , that would fit seamlessly into a building originally constructed using imperial modules.
For the project , Forman Commercial Interiors installed Armstrong RH99 Ultima K2C2 acoustic ceiling tiles , a product with top of the line green credentials , excellent acoustic properties, high recycled content, high impact resistance and durability.
The supporting Armstrong Blue Tongue Aluminium Grid was strong enough to support the chilled beams and lights and was specially modified for the project to enable air to circulate back into the plenum area through 80mm wide perforated metal strips which doubled as a 'make-up strip' converting the ceiling from an imperial module to a metric module.
