Hobsonville Point Primary & Secondary schools are the first public-private partnership (PPP) schools in NZ.
The consortium LIP which includes ASC Architects and Hawkins Construction selected Asona’s acoustic wall and ceiling systems because Asona could customise a solution to maximise the natural light of the buildings whilst providing fire safe, low VOC, high acoustic performance products with 80% recycled content combined with a recycle and renew programme for long term sustainability.
The central atrium space features Asona's acoustic Baffle Beams suspended in linear rows parallel to the skylights to provide an upscale appearance whilst controlling reverberation.
The Baffle Beams have a 40 mm high density glass fibre core, are wrapped in white Sonatex glass mat composite facing and are glued and friction fitted into a tissue wrapped C Channel and butted together end to end to create a continuous linear aesthetic. The Baffle Beams have a 1S fire rating.
