Walsall College is an ambitious £38M project to deliver a number of specialised music, business and IT academies within one centralised college campus. Designed by Dyer Associates, the central feature within the main atrium is a striking timber lined flexible learning pod.

The BCL panel system not only helped facilitate the installation speeds required to stay on track and deliver the project in time, but also helped deliver the complex slat arrangements efficiently and with a consistently high level of quality

The new Life Sciences Building at the University of Southampton, known as Building 85, has been designed with the purpose of being the University’s flagship building, creating a world-leading research and learning centre in the field of Biological & Medical Science and is the first project in the UK to utilise BCL’s BAMBOO acoustic system.

As with every BCL panel system, NBBJ & BAM had complete design control over the species, treatments & dimensions of timber used on the panels. After a rigorous selection process, Bamboo was chosen as the clear winner over other competing species for its fantastic combination of quality, sustainability, durability and low cost.
