New Project Start – Daphne Oram Creative Arts Centre – Canterbury Christ Church University
During the summer holiday break, well for students and some staff, AW Construction will be working within the university campus on delivering a number of key projects. The first starts this week and will see us carry out several alterations and improvements to the recording studios within Daphne Oram building.
Some of the works:
- Removing all services from ceilings
- Removing acoustic ceiling panels
- Associated MF grid removed.
- Double layer plasterboard ceilings removed.
- Removal of suspended ceilings
- Installation of new ventilation
- Reinstatement of everything removed.
- Acoustic sealing between rooms
- Reinstate services.
- Minor decorations
We have managed a careful site set up to protect the polished concrete flooring with layers of Correx sheets, to allow us better site ingress and egress through the main reception doors. Extra protection had to be put in place to protect the glass viewing windows which show off the remains of St Augustine’s Abbey precinct wall within the main reception flooring area which was discovered during the preliminary site investigations when the building was first proposed.
As we carefully dismantle the recording studio ceilings to gain access to carry out our works, all the components from each are being carefully indexed to make sure that the reinstatement goes without a hitch and minimal wastage occurs.
Our onsite Project Manager, Garry Edwards, will be leading our team, with perhaps one of the nicest site offices and staff welfare facilities we have ever experienced, making sure that everything remains on programme to hand back to the university before the new term starts
