The Business Garden Wrocław is a remarkable 17,000 square metre development in the heart of Wroclaw, Poland, that recently had Troldtekt’s acoustic panels installed.
Consisting of nine offices and service buildings along with retail units, the LEED Platinum development includes the new headquarters of Santander Bank, designed by architects Workplace Solutions.
The headquarters is a bright, lively and inviting environment for both staff and visitors – worlds apart from the stuffy banks of old.
With large open spaces, break-out areas and conference rooms, the designers sought a way to control the acoustics. As a result, they specified over 600 square metres of Troldtekt’s acoustic panels across large parts of the building from Modern Classic, Troldtekt’s local partners in Poland.
Troldtekt is the perfect choice because it provides the twin benefits of superior acoustic performance and sustainability. Here, Troldtekt ultrafine panels feature in both natural wood and white to break up the ceilings and create a striking mosaic effect.
Founded on the Cradle-to-Cradle design concept and recently attaining Gold certification, Troldtekt’s natural and inherently sustainable panels are available in a variety of different surfaces and colours. They contribute positively to a building’s BREEAM, DGNB and LEED ratings.
In addition, panels which incorporate Futurecem™, the patented new cement from Aalborg Portland, have a significantly reduced carbon footprint.
Overall, across the entire product life cycle, the carbon footprint is 26.4% lower than for Troldtekt based on grey cement and a sizeable 37.7% lower than for Troldtekt based on white cement.
In addition to their high sound absorption and attractive tactile surface, Troldtekt acoustic panels offer high durability and low-cost lifecycle performance. Available in various sizes and in four grades, from extreme fine to coarse, the panels can be left untreated or painted in virtually any RAL colour.
