Kings Cross Residential Acoustic Flooring System

OVERVIEW

Capella Development, Handyside, Kings Cross London


Developer: Argent

Main contractor: Laing O’Rourke 

Architects: Chapman Taylor

Sub Contractor: InstaGroup


120 newly built residential apartments received InstaCoustic's 'dry' cradle & batten system combining under floor heating & topped with Knauf GifaFloor FHB25.


Original plans were to install a T&G chipboard to finish the acoustic floor system, however it was determined that there were deflection risks around the proposed large format tile finish.


As a result, the chipboard was replaced by the high density, gypsum fibreboard Knauf GifaFloor FHB25. This resulted in:

  • Quicker install & less use water than a wet screed system
  • Improved acoustic performance
  • Improved fire performance
  • Improved thermal efficiency resulting in reduced energy costs for the end user
  • Higher loading performance, creating a solid substrate for the finish to be applied directly to
  • Reduction in overall embodied carbon & installation of a product that offers a high recycled content
  • Lifetime guarantee of the building
