Kellet School, Kowloon Bay, Hong Kong
Features: The development included a 500-seat performance hall, two large music rehearsal rooms, music practice rooms, libraries, classrooms, computer rooms, an indoor sports hall and an outdoor rooftop sports ground.
Challenge: Challenges included ensuring adequate sound insulation for the 500-seat performance hall located near a busy road, and various music practice and teaching rooms adjacent to each other. Two large atria which are used as playgrounds and interconnect all the primary and secondary school facilities provided an additional challenge.
Vipac’s role: Vipac ensured adequate indoor-outdoor sound insulation as well as separation between the various teaching spaces. Vipac provided a high class flexible acoustic design of the performance hall and music practice rooms and provided noise control for building services.
Benefit: Vipac provided detailed yet budget-conscious acoustic design, maximizing acoustic comfort for this high end educational facility.
