Kingsgate School

Kingsgate School Project by GS Acoustic Design London Acoustic and Noise Consultants

▷ Year: 2018
▷ Location: London, UK
▷ Client: Camden Borough Council
▷ Architect: Macreanor Lavington Architects

A new build primary school in West Hampstead, London. Constructed out of CLT, sound insulation had to be carefully considered in order to minimise disturbance between classrooms while leaving as much exposed as possible.
GS Acoustic Design Consultants provided several auralisations to quantify the impact of the adjacent railway to the key stakeholders in order to carry out value engineering of potential building isolation. Feedback showed that the client really welcomed this tool which allowed them to go beyond the objective parameters and hear different scenarios subjectively.
