Camestone School, Bedford
Constructed at a time when acoustics were not considered important, this school hall, like many across the UK was in urgent need of an upgrade.
The school hall is used for assemblies, teaching, drama productions and as a gymnasium. But reverberation time of nearly 3 seconds (considered VERY high) made speech intelligibility almost impossible thus rendering it detrimental to learning and an unpleasant space to be in.
Rossco analysed the space and installed a series of custom-made absorbers that eliminates the problems.
It is now fit for purpose on all levels.
