Description of works

Works consisted of bespoke perforated stained oak veneered acoustic panels to the outside of a 5 floor atrium staircase. The inside faces and top capping balustrade were also stained oak veneer but non perforated. The soffits of the stairs were finished in high gloss spray painted panels. The installation was particularly challenging from the complex scaffolding required for access to all faces. The perforated panels were dipped in bespoke trays of stain to coat the large visible perforations which could not be achieved by spraying alone.
