Greater Hume Shire is a local government area in the Riverina region of southern New South Wales, they were looking for a company to help them create a quieter space for Jindera community hub.
Greater Hume Council has a building in their vicinity, called the Jindera Community Hub. It has multiple uses for the community, including:
- A customer service office
- Ample public space with free open access computers
- A local bank maintains a branch within the building
- Office space for several council staff
When Avenue Interior Systems was first contacted, Jindera Community Hub was ten months young. We were engaged for acoustic treatment in the foyer and the community hub, to reduce echo and volume in these spaces.
Avenue Interior Systems collaborated with the Council and our AcousTech engineer. After we received plans and photos of the impacted space, our AcousTech engineer completed acoustic modelling to confirm the challenges they were having and the best solution.
We worked closely with the Council in regards to the best course of action, the colours they wanted to use and the layout. When everyone was happy with the final plans, we provided Calando Panels for the ceiling as well as the walls. The panels on the walls were custom cut and wrapped in fabric to match the décor of the facility.
The results were above and beyond what Greater Hume Council expected, with the Director commenting,
“As you can see, the panels match the colour of the walls and ceiling well and are very unobtrusive. Despite not being able to notice them visually, the panels have made a huge difference to the office. The noise issues that we were experiencing have now largely disappeared, and the main office/foyer area is now a quiet space no matter how many people are in the office. Overall we are very happy with the result and the difference that the panels have made to the ambience of the office.”
Greater Hume was so pleased with the outcome they also invested in acoustic treatment in their Culcairn Library.
If you have a commercial acoustics concern, contact Avenue Interior Systems on 1300 827 177 and find out how Calando Panels may be able to help you.
