West – Amdavad Metro shines
Creates facilities, many for first time among India’s metros
Amdavad Metro Station | Client – Gujarat Metro Rail Corporation Limited [GMRCL] www.gujaratmetrorail.com | Place – Ahmedabad, Gujarat | Segment – Station [Gyaspur Depot] | Architect – Rites www.ritesltd.com | Installer – URC Construtions www.urcindia.com | Anutone Products – Subtex Nubby, Soak Cord Binary & Soak Cord Triangle
Contrary to popular perception, the working of a mass rapid transit rail network such as Amdavad metro requires soundproof spaces for quiet working of system engineers and operations managers. The need was for such large enclosed spaces to be treated for acoustics with aesthetics.
The solution for bright, white, accessible ceilings in t-grid suspended systems was to use Subtex Nubby acoustical ceiling tiles in Skelet Trelis framing systems and Soak Cord in a dual colour pattern for panelling.
GMRCL’s Amdavad Metro is very pleased with the results. Now engineers can enjoy their work with minmum disturbance and distraction. This has enhanced their attentiveness and efficiency.
South – Quiet coworking spaces
Indiqube makes it dynamic with islands in the sky
IndiQube www.indiqube.com | Place – Bengaluru, Karnataka | Segment – Office | Dealer and Installer- Chisel Sales | Anutone Products – Subtex Shapes Nubby Hexagon Colours
Indiqube as a young startup in the coworking space wanted a bright, vibrant and dynamic ceiling to reflect their corporate ethos and appeal to space users who are young techies from the IT|ITeS sector
The solution called for doing away with boring whites and the conventional wall-to-wall grid ceilings and opting for open plenum ceilings with acoustical clouds that can be painted in a rich pallette of colours. Subtex Shapes comes to the rescue.
Coworkers find the Indiqube spaces fun that vibes well with both their personality and job profiles. Due to sound absorption on both surfaces of the acoustics is doubly efficient with much less panels used as compared to conventional grid ceilings.
