GHDWoodhead Creative Spaces project, the Hastings Police Station, has won the Hawkes Bay/Gisborne Public Architecture Award and Décortech is proud to have supplied the fire-resistant and acoustic wall and ceiling panels featured throughout the building.
“The internal layout of the station is designed so that the staff areas are predominantly located within open plan floor layouts with a central atrium space and circulation route forming the core of the building. This space allows for superior integration and communication between various teams across the floor levels. The open layout of the building was integral to allowing a change in the ways police work in creating a more agile workplace," explains David Angus, GHDWoodhead Creative Spaces.
"Décortech slotted panels were selected for the wall and ceiling linings in the atrium and central circulation space in order to control ambient noise between the floor levels whilst also creating enjoyable spaces for people to meet and congregate."
"Tasmanian oak timber veneer was specified to keep the space warm and light whilst the perforated slot pattern provides texture and interest to the space," David says. "The versatility of the product allowed us to continue the acoustic surface from wall to ceiling to suspended ceiling tiles.”
Design, sustainability and excellent acoustic solutions all under one roof.
