  • 22 Jun 2016

High performance Troldtekt acoustic panels have been used in the refurbishment of the BBC TV Centre at Wood Lane London. 

Completed in February last year, HOK architects redesigned much of the interior, with refurbishment and construction carried out by specialist dry-lining contractors BDL Group.

To ensure that noise was kept to a minimum and reverberation time was reduced, Troldtekt acoustic panels were specified in a light grey finish to line all the ceilings and the soffit around the circular atrium. The panels were installed on wood battens, which were fixed to the concrete ceiling as ceiling panels.

BDL managing surveyor Elliot Bryant found the panels ‘very easy to handle and install’, commenting that the company was impressed with their acoustic performance and attractive unifying appearance.
