Modular Room Installation at Stonyhurst College



Amadeus were tasked with the pre-Christmas supply and installation of five modular acoustic rooms for Stonyhurst College, required to replace some “totally un-soundproof” music practice rooms built in the early 1900’s.

This job, along with many others, highlights the single biggest advantage of our Boxy modular rooms – they provide a guaranteed performance that not only meets the acoustic requirements of BB93 but exceeds them.

The project was a roaring success; from offload to completion, the build and installation took just 7 days on site. Each room performs above and beyond BB93 requirements for insulation, transmission and reverberation times.

From the winding roads of the Umbrian town of Terni, Italy, to the sweeping driveway of Stonyhurst College in Lancashire, came five modular rooms ready for installation to begin on a very cold but sunny Thursday 11th December 2008.

 

With all jobs of this nature, the practical implications such as how to offload items from A to B are of paramount importance. In this case, the offload point stood 12 metres from and 20 metres above the resting point and some heavy duty kit was required.

Amadeus had to ensure that each pallet was craned in and dropped precisely where required, to allow each piece – that had been meticulously packed and labelled – to be brought in and utilised immediately.

With the rooms safely offloaded the build commenced and was completed on Thursday 18th December, 7 days from arrival of the rooms.

The Verdict:
The school were delighted with the project and had the following to say;

“Our school had a suite of 16 practice rooms built in the early 1900’s, part wood and part glass, totally unsoundproof! As part of a review of the department it was recommended that we look at modular practice rooms as a viable alternative. Out of three quotes, the Boxy quote was the most comprehensive, easiest to sort out and came with the personal touch of a visit from John Locke.Throughout the process John has been extremely helpful, in constant touch and always available for queries and reassurance. John and Claudio visited the school in the planning stages and were able to make really useful suggestions as to placement and size of the rooms. Once ordered the whole process was dealt with professionally, everything arrived when they said it would, Claudio Lamberini and the team worked superbly well to build the five rooms in five days, and took a real pride in their work. After sales communication is superb with regular e mails and visits to check on progress and help with questions.

We are now the proud owners of five superb modular practice rooms. They are used for teaching, practicing, rehearsing and recording. They are easy to use and maintain, the pupils and staff queue up to use them and they look fantastic – a real benefit to the department. I would recommend Boxy Practice Rooms to anyone who is looking to provide modern, well built and appointed rooms which are virtually soundproof, delightful to use and great to look at.”
