Bespoke Knauf AMF ceilings touch down at airport

An £8m three-storey, energy efficient, administrative hub at Bristol Airport has just been completed.

The impressive state-of-the-art steel framed building has a bespoke Knauf AMF ceiling system fitted throughout to ensure acoustic comfort for the airport’s senior management and project teams.

A visually intricate honeycomb effect ceiling required the design and meticulous installation of suspended hexagonal acoustic rafts with precise spacing. This represented a challenge, but one Knauf AMF overcame with the development of a bespoke Donn grid. The grid ensured that each one of the 420 Topiq Sonic Rafts were positioned equidistant to each other.

Commenting on the project Stride Treglown Associate Architect Toni Riddiford said: “This building facilitates a new agile and collaborative way of working for Bristol Airport.

“The internal aesthetic is an honest expression of the steel structure and exposed services installation. However, these two factors require careful acoustic consideration. The result is a series of hexagonal suspended rafts that provide acoustic function, as well as making a strong visual statement, defining areas and adding interest to the soffit.”

AMF Topiq Sonic are frameless ceiling rafts which offer excellent sound absorption and humidity resistance.

Suspended by simple, discreet cable hangers, the rafts create a weightless, elegant structure.

Manufactured in a range of shapes and custom colours, AMF Topiq Sonic rafts offer architects and designers even greater design choice as well as superior performance.
