Asona Provides Innovative Ceiling Finishes for Ormiston Junior College

Ormiston Junior College is one of NZ's newest PPP (Public-Private Partnership) high schools. Designed by award-winning architects Andrew Scott Cotton (ASC), the stunning facility meets the needs of teaching and learning for the 21st century.

When considering acoustics for the flexible learning spaces and laneways of the new college, Asona's Triton 50 ceiling panel was an obvious choice, due to the high sound absorption co-efficient, the wide range of over-sized panels (600 x 1200mm, 600 x 2400mm and 1200 x 1200mm), and the selection of decorative finishes.

Wood-look facing laminated onto Triton 50 (1200 x 2400mm) panels instilled warmth to the lobby space, with some of the panels featuring slot perforations over black Sonatex to meet the acoustic brief.

Ground level corridors used Triton 25 (1200 x 1200mm) acoustic ceiling panels with a customised random slot perforated facing in white over grey Sonatex, creating a non-linear pattern that worked in well with the irregular ceiling layout and changes in direction.

ASC enjoyed switching up the ceiling panel sizes and finishes as an elegant and economical solution to differentiate zones within a flexible learning environment.
