A Bildspec Series 100 Rw52 Acoustic Operable Wall has recently been installed at Deakin University (Melbourne Burwood Campus). The university was looking for a replacement operable wall for its HD Building that was simple and easy to operate in order to quickly and easily be able to vary teaching spaces to suit different size requirements as they were required.
Operable Walls improve the effectiveness of learning spaces by ensuring that they are adaptable to accommodate small or large groups; include learning centres with flexible spaces that allow students to learn in a variety of settings, and provide opportunities to enhance skills in collaboration, communication, critical thinking, problem solving and creativity.
The university’s HD Building is a three-story building within the campus which houses a food court, several restaurants, a function room and two multipurpose rooms. The level 3 function room needed an operable wall system which could be utilized to provide various sized classes or conference type events within the shared space.
The architect, Tall Architects, set strict design requirements for this project where the acoustic wall needed to:
Allow the layout for two large learning spaces to be easily changed by one person, at least 10 times per week, and
Provide very good acoustic insulation, and
Meet current design standards for educational facilities and demonstrate a commitment to delivering accessibility by adopting the principles of Universal Design, and
Support the university’s teaching and learning agenda by providing innovative premium located learning spaces
Be completed in a Laminex Classic Oak Natural finish.
Bildspec were chosen to due their excellent reputation for successfully meeting hundreds of operable wall projects with similar demanding requirements across Australia.
