BCL Bamboo Panels in Thames Tower Renovation

The old 1970’s tower block located just outside Reading train station in the heart of the town is now the exciting, newly renovated office space; Thames Tower. Designed by De Novo Architecture and constructed by Bowmer & Kirkland the build was completed in May 2017.

Striking BCL timber panels feature heavily in the grand reception area on the ground floor.

The eye catching Bamboo ceiling and wall panels cover 210m2. The panels achieve an acoustic Class B, they are made with 19 x 44mm bamboo slats with a 19mm gap. A fire retardant lacquer covers the slats, giving system a Class 0 SSF rating.

The system cost £90,000 and was designed, manufactured and installed by BCL.
