New Ministry Ceiling Meets Seismic Requirements

Angus Ceilings put together a ceiling package in conjunction with T&R Interior Systems and its resident engineers, Sawrey Consulting.

The brief was for a suspended ceiling with not only strategic seismic design, but also offering high acoustic performance for a largely open-plan environment, with lightweight construction and clean aesthetic appeal.

Angus Ceilings braced the suspended ceilings to an ultimate limit state as per Sawrey Consulting Engineers' design, and installed CMAX tiles with a Noise Reduction Coefficient of .95 to all the open plan areas. The result was a comfortable, extremely safe and aesthetically pleasing suspended ceiling that adequately complements this new office environment.

T&R Interior Systems also provided the ceiling grid (T&R CBI 24mm Two Way Exposed Grid), and Daiken NDF Mineral Fibre Tiles, with a NRC of 0.55–0.6.
