BCL Panels Part of Coventry University’s New World-Class Facility
The new £37 million construction of Coventry University’s new state of the art Science and Health Building has been completed. Inside the new structure, built by main contractors BAM, there is a stunning communal area with BCL panels at the heart of the design.
Specified by Broadway Malyan the flexibility of the BCL system allowed the project architects to maintain the aesthetic they wanted to achieve while meeting the acoustic needs of the open spaces.
There are several different panel configurations in this project, all designed with American White Oak slats. The BCL panels, which cover 1200m2 of the Coventry University building, are fully demountable, allowing access to the services behind. The slats have a factory applied lacquer coating providing a class 0 ssf fire protection and the different panel layouts offer both class A and class C acoustic absorption.
The £300,000 BCL system was designed and manufactured by BCL and installed by BAM. The BCL project was completed in 12 weeks, as with all projects BCL provided support throughout the whole process from design and specification through to installation. Constructing a world-class University facility is a project BCL have enjoyed being part of.
