Priory Road, Bristol University
Priory Road Lecture Theatre, Bristol University
Led by Feilden Clegg Bradley architects and developed by Galliford Try, Bristol University saw the construction of a 450 seat lecture theatre added to the Priory Road complex, completed in 2014. It is one of the most important new facilities for the University’s growth project, previously the largest lecture theatre they had could seat just 380 students. Due to more people attending university each year, more learning space is incredibly important.
For the ceiling and walls, BCL’s Siberian Larch panels were selected. Measuring at 100 x 25 mm for the ceiling and 50 x 25 mm for the walls over 596 m2 of the space, the prefabricated panels were fitted over dark grey acoustic fleece and fitted with our concealed fixings. Due to some panels being at a low level, Siberian Larch was the right choice thanks to its strength and durability, meaning it will therefore be more resistant to human contact. All panels were coated with class 1 SSF fire treatment.
