BCL Panels Central Feature in New Charter Building Revamp
The Charter Building in Uxbridge, a once outdated office building has now been fully renovated into a modern ‘ground scraper’. BCL acoustic panels are a proud feature in the impressive open-plan reception space, covering just over 360m2.
Architects De Novo Architecture and main contractors Bowmer & Kirkland chose the BCL system, which was also selected by both previously for the ‘Thames Tower’ project in Reading. The design for The Charter Building used FSC Idigbo timber in 44 x 44mm slats configuration.
The panels have a 50% open area (44mm gaps) and perform at an acoustic rating of ‘Class A’. The Class 0 SSF lacquer applied to the timber was also pigmented giving the slats a light brown/honey colour, following the bespoke colour matching service provided by BCL on every internal project.
BCL, providing our full design management service in Revit / BIM, liaised with De Novo in the early stages to formulate panel layouts and coordinate detail design. Then, provided our direct installation service to the main contractor B&K, phased in two stages to align with their overall construction programme.
