Information about Hunter Douglas ceilings installed at the Royal College of Surgeons of England
The new London headquarters of the prestigious Royal College of Surgeons of England celebrates its historic origins and looks forward to its future as a place of learning for 21st century doctors and dentists.
The Lincoln’s Fields Inn building retains the original, now Grade II listed, facade designed by Sir Charles Barry, while the newly constructed rear section contains state-of-the-art learning facilities and the Professional Surgical Center.
With an emphasis on high-tech and sustainability, global architectural products company Hunter Douglas was commissioned to supply 358m2 of its American White Oak, 15mm x 35mm louver solid wood grid ceiling, which will also be installed in the Presidential Suite, conference and function rooms were used as an entrance hall and cafe area.
The Hunter Douglas Solid Wood BBQ Blanket is an eco-friendly choice and is FSC/PEFC certified. It’s also Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver, proving it meets certain strict standards for manufacturing and environmental controls.
Juliette Halliday, National Sales Manager at Hunter Douglas Architectural said: “Solid wood is a great choice for any designer or architect looking to maximize their environmental footprint as it is virtually carbon neutral and fully recyclable.
“The other benefit is that we offer a fully bespoke solution, which means installers don’t have to make any adjustments on site. This not only reduces waste, but also installation time and costs.
“As a global company we are used to being chosen for high profile projects but it was wonderful to be part of the construction of the Royal College of Surgeons of England as it is a globally respected organization with a truly impressive headquarters.”
The ceiling was fitted by Wates Construction with 30mm spacing and an acoustic fleece fitted on site to the back of the panels.
Kevin Monger, Drywall and False Ceiling Manager at Wates Construction said: “The quality of the product from Hunter Douglas was exceptional and definitely gave a great finish to an already amazing building. The help and advice from the Hunter Douglas team was outstanding and cannot be faulted.”
Jackie Weller, Executive Director (transform)/Deputy Chief Executive at the Royal College of Surgeons of England added: “We are delighted with our solid wood BBQ decks. They blend seamlessly with the historic architecture while conveying a high-tech and eco-sustainable feel. It was a pleasure working with Hunter Douglas who provided us with a professional and efficient service.”
