Minutes from the centre of London sits Stratford Plaza, a new luxurious £80m Telford Homes Plc development, built to a very high specification, complete with Knauf AMF acoustic ceilings. Stratford Plaza is situated within the New Commercial Quarter, overlooking Olympic Park.
This exciting project on a site opposite Stratford Station has resulted in a structurally impressive 26 storey elliptical building featuring 220 apartment and 2,000m2 of commercial space. An impressive design feature is the architecturally innovative use of floor-to-ceiling glazing which allows maximum light to flood into its interiors.
Barry Jarvis of Telford Homes:
“Telford Homes prides itself on its reputation for building excellence. Given the large amount of glass utilised in the design of Stratford Plaza internal sound insulation was of paramount importance to us. Knauf AMF Thermatex not only provided us with the required acoustic rating and desired aesthetics but importantly they impressed us with their onsite support and efficient supply chain which always met the agreed schedule.”
One design imperative for project, with the scale of glass present, was to ensure optimal sound control. In addition to aesthetics, ease of access for maintenance was also a critical factor, which is why Knauf AMF Thermatex® Acoustic Planks were specified for use in shared spaces throughout the building.
THERMATEX® Alpha HD offers extremely high acoustic absorbency. The tiles, which guarantee easy handling and uncomplicated construction, are available in lengths of up to 1800mm – wide enough to span the corridors of the Stratford Plaza in a single plank, complimenting the clean lines of the contemporary design with their highly light reflective, elegant, smooth surface.
