LSA Projects Ltd are pleased to share with you a great new Oranit installation at the University of Central Lancaster, Preston Campus.
The new £8 million addition to the Preston campus includes additions to two seperate buildings at the university; an extension to the Foster building and a linking space between the Harrington and Greenbank buildings.

The new building is the first part of a £200m regeneration masterplan to expand the campus over the next 5 years, giving additional teaching and learning space as well as contributing to the regeneration of Preston city and the Adephi Quarter.

The two new additions to the campus were designed by AHR Architects in cooperation with the University and Students Union to create functional social spaces that would fit the needs and desires of the students who will be using them. Both social hubs have spaces for staff and students to mix and meet socially or for work as well as facilities for refreshments, pool tables, and public computers.
Oranit Shiluvit panels were chosen in part for the ceilings of the spaces due to their impressive acoustic power; the configuration chosen which included LSA Black High Density Acoustic mineral wool achieves an overall rating of Class A for acoustic absorption making it perfect for ensuring minimal reverberation in the busy social spaces helping to keep a relaxed casual atmosphere.

Yellow Pine timber was chosen for its depth of texture as well as its PEFC Certification, the timber was then stained to resemble the tone of Oak.

Many thanks to our friends at AHR Architects for their kind specification and excellent design and Giotto Group for their expert installation.
