Three types of building interior solutions from Armstrong Ceilings are bringing a splash of colour, style and practicality to a refurbished sport and leisure facility in Stockton on Tees.
These are complemented by five INFUSIONS
canopies in Midnight Dream blue which are suspended from the ceiling but also attached to the wall in the reception area to Splash – the town’s large wet and dry facility which is based around a 25-metre pool with wave machine and flumes, learner pool and spa pool.
Scott Roberts, an architect in the council’s technical services department, said: “The Armstrong
canopies were specified to provide aesthetic quality to the large double-height space of the café area while the mineral and metal tiles help to control ambient sound in administrative areas where particular concentration is required.”
As well as the refurbished café and extended foyer and reception, the local authority centre sports an extended two-storey Activ8 fitness facility, brand-new dry multi-activity spaces, extra changing facilities, and new Sportwall and Dance Mat technology.
In addition to the polycarbonate INFUSIONS
canopies in the reception and café areas, Splash also features Armstrong
’s Ultima white mineral tiles with Tegular edge detailing in the kitchen, storage and office areas. These tiles combine excellent acoustic qualities with high light reflectance and good humidity resistance.
’s presence at Splash is compounded with Orcal microperforated acoustic metal tiles with fleece. All three types of ceiling solutions were installed over areas ranging from 100m² to 2,000m² and in just over a month by specialist sub-contractor BJ Murphy for main contractor F Parkinson.
