Armourcoat polished plaster and acoustic plaster systems have recently played a large part in the refurbishment of the Minster Building in the heart of London’s business district.
The interior design, by architects BuckleyGrayYeoman for Ivanhoé Cambridge and its development/asset manager Greycoat Real Estate LLP, created a major repositioning of the building built around the central eight-storey atrium.
The ground floor reception is approached by a 30m long boulevard from the new entrance on the corner of Mincing Lane and Great Tower Street. The original entrance has also been retained to Minster Court piazza.
Measuring seven metres high and up to eight metres wide, the impressive entrance boulevard has a polished floor of terrazzo with bronze inlays, edged by dark oak.
Throughout the entrance and reception spaces, the walls are hand-finished in nearly 2,000m2 of Armourcoat polished plaster together with over 600m2 of the company’s Acoustic Plaster System applied to the ceilings.
Tthe Acoustic Plaster system offers a clean and smooth mineral surface that can be applied seamlessly over large expanses to both flat and curved surfaces.
Comprising of a special mineral wool composite panel that is bonded onto the substrate and finished with a seamless layer, the Armourcoat Acoustic Plaster System offers an elegant marble based plaster finish while allowing sound energy to pass through the surface.
Finally, the zero VOC system, which consists of 80% recycled material, achieves class ‘0’ fire rating and a class ‘A’ Noise Reduction Coefficient rating.
