During the year-long build, the team had to overcome a number of challenges to ensure the renovation was a success.
In particular, delivering products to site in a cost-effective and timely manner became a major logistical issue that British Gypsum and distributor Nevill Long worked closely together to solve.
Included in the client’s renovation plans were a number of complicated acoustic and fire performance upgrades that were difficult to achieve with standard drylining products.
During a consultation with the contractor McLaughlin & Harvey, the team at Nevill Long recommended a number of British Gypsum’s drylining solutions, including Gyproc SoundBloc and Gyproc Habito plasterboards, for use in the auditorium.
Willie Main, Business Unit Manager of Nevill Long, said: “We have developed a strong working relationship with British Gypsum over many years and this project reaffirmed why we consider them such a trusted partner.
“The company’s bespoke boards were an ideal solution for the client, who was looking to overcome some of the difficult challenges associated with the build.
“It’s important for a specialist distributor like us, to be able to recommend unique products to meet every design challenge and British Gypsum’s innovative product range really helped us to achieve our goal.”
