Community Windpower is at the forefront of wind energy development in the UK with over 800MW built, under construction and in development. As proven renewable energy specialists, the business is experienced in the identification, design, development, construction and operation of onshore wind farms and currently has six operational wind farms in Scotland, with a further three approved for development.
Sustainable building design was at the forefront of considerations for Community Windpower’s new headquarters. They were looking for ceiling systems that were ultra-green but also “modern, artistic and bespoke” to complement the lighting systems.
To meet the client’s brief, some 300m2 of the new fully-recyclable Aruba MicroLook tile and grid (the first ceiling system in the industry to gain Cradle to Cradle accreditation) was specified in the back offices and canteen, and 250m2 of acoustic mineral tile Oplia hA dB (which performs to Sound Absorption Class A) in closed cell offices.
The ultra green and highly light-reflecting Zentia’s systems were installed over two weeks, on the upper floor to sloped internal eaves, by a team of up to eight from Heatons Ceilings who are a member of Zentia’s Pinnacle Partner network of approved specialist sub-contractors.
“The Zentia ceilings are one of the key features interfacing with modern lighting designs. Their clean and bright features also help with this. They have accommodated pitch issues well as well as light wells, air-conditioning and lighting. Zentia had products that suited our building and the contractors were confident they could be installed. I’m very happy with the result.”
