The Armstrong systems were installed over two months by a team of up to 10 from specialist sub-contractor who required the installation to be defect free at completion. OCP are a member of Armstrong’s Omega network of approved ceiling installers.
OCP’s contracts manager Charles Corbyn said: “Due to the complex nature of the bespoke mesh metal ceiling, OCP liaised with Armstrong’s technical department and together ensured we could achieve procurement for the project.
‘With OCP’s team of specialist fixers, it allowed for a straightforward and perfect installation which is versatile and met what the client had specified. OCP were privileged to have been given the opportunity to install the bespoke ceiling system and are excited by the changes within the industry towards more specialist ceiling systems and unique designs.”
Armstrong systems were specified by architect TP Bennett for a dining hall and informal lounge with adjacent booths on one side but by the time it came to installation the dining hall had become open-plan office space.
The jet black (RAL 9005 with 5% gloss)mesh metal tiles from Armstrong, customised with a larger-than-usual 70% open area meshand installed using a standard crossing box and c-profile suspension system with 75mm trim strips and custom metal bulkheads around the complete perimeter of the space, deliver the industrial aesthetic the architect was looking for, complete with functionality as the exposed services above the ceiling needed to be accessible.
