University of Bristol
Make By Design were awarded the contract to design, manufacture and install the specialist joinery and acoustic wall and ceiling package's for Kier Construction at Senate House, University of Bristol.
Working with our valued client Kier Construction for the specialist joinery works and JJ Interiors for the supply only acoustic walls and ceiling works over a six month design and build programme, Make By Design designed, manufactured and installed the following items of joinery:
Over 400m2 of walls of class 0 fire rated bespoke slatted ceiling and wall panelling manufactured from 30mm wide, 19mm thick oak veneered Birch Plywood and Kvadrat Field 2 acoustic crib 5 inerrant fabric to the stunning dining hall ceiling and walls.
Bespoke sprayed MR MDF black coffer sections, cappings and junctions.
Checking in desks
SU Loft including bleacher seating, kitchenette and pergola structure
Bespoke Planter seating complete with 20ft tree incorporated into the centre of the structure
Ground Floor Planters
Egger Corbridge Oak laminated onto Birch Plywood was specified for the majority of the finishes throughout the scheme. This project was another great example of Make By Design's ability to incorporate multiple discipline materials and manufacture's into our service, with the supply and installation of upholstered seating and architectural metal work incorporated within the joinery.
The biggest challenge on the project was undoubtedly the design and manufacture of the dining hall ceiling. With 25Nr. ceilings making up the main ceiling space and each ceiling making up 12Nr. panels each with slightly varying raking angles to suit the site structural metal and timber hips, the challenge was set to make sure the precision and attention to detail was met on this stunning design. Each ceiling panel was measured on site and drawn up in Autocad with bespoke CNC FR MDF substrate panels matching exactly what was required on site, resulting in a stunning end product.
Despite many challenges of working during the COVID19 global pandemic, works were completed on time in March 2021.
