Hunter Douglas Architectural provided a sustainable ceiling option for a £ 55 million cruise terminal in Southampton that features a variety of environmentally friendly features.

The fifth terminal of the Association of British Ports in the port city is a two-story building at berth 102 next to the City Terminal and has roof-mounted solar energy and a shore power connection. Renewable materials include prefabricated piles and associated foundations.

To complement the sustainability goals, Hunter Douglas Architectural, the global architectural products company, was commissioned to deliver 1249 m²2 its 100% recyclable HeartFelt® panels.

The award-winning HeartFelt® made of thermoformed PES fleece fibers is increasingly in demand by architects and designers who want to install an innovative ceiling with excellent acoustic properties.

Architect Stride Treglown Solent specified the panels in 40mm x 55mm and a module of 50mm and selected dark brown (7578) and these were placed between curved wooden panels in the main terminal room. Acoustic pads have been added to achieve a Class A acoustic rating.

Juliette Halliday, Hunter Douglas Architectural’s National Sales Director who worked with prime contractor Brymor Construction, said, “Wood was originally intended for the project, but we suggested HeartFelt® as it is ideal for a large terminal building.

“Not only is it light, it also has excellent acoustic properties that are essential for comfort in this type of environment. Of course, ease of installation and cost were also important considerations and HeartFelt® met all of the criteria. “

Gordon Butler, Contract Manager at AT Jones who installed the ceiling, said, “The process has been challenging at times
due to access and height as it was 12 meters above moving escalators but installation was easy.

“It was a short program of 21 weeks, but it was a great project to work on. Working with Brymor Construction was a pleasure and we were a big team from the start. Everyone involved did a great job and the building was handed over early on. “

AT Jones has installed a number of Hunter Douglas ceilings, although this is only the second Gordon has installed after working on a wooden ceiling for the Edenbrook Leisure Center. “Both the wood product and HeartFelt® are good, with impressive results after completion,” he added.

HeartFelt® is a linear ceiling system with open joints between the panels. The box-shaped panels are available in heights of 55 mm, 80 mm and 105 mm, while the round panels are available in a height of 64 mm.

The panels have a maximum length of 6000mm, while the 105mm version has a maximum length of 4000mm and is available in modules from 50mm to 200mm in 10mm increments.

The product is Cradle-to-Cradle certified™ Bronze.
