Acoustic solutions for aged care facilities

Supplier: Modular Wall Systems
31 March, 2014

Bupa Aged Care built a new facility along the busy Princes Hwy in Sutherland, Sydney.

Challenge

The original council plans called for a timber fence along the main road boundary, which was quickly deemed unsuitable due to the high traffic noise and unappealing veneer.

Solution

Bupa sought out a more aesthetically pleasing solution to match the prestigious image of their premier facility and quickly settled upon the VogueWall system, which utilises the 75mm AcoustiMax™ panel.

Modular Wall Systems worked closely with Bupa, local council and Taylor Constructions to design a wall that not only blended with the surrounding landscape, but carefully navigated between the existing trees that had a preservation order on them.

The minimal impact design of the Modular Wall System post footing was a perfect fit for this application. To enhance the natural and landscaped "feel" of the wall, we provided setback bays every 9 metres and applied a designer-series stone cladding. The final touch included painting in "Iron Stone" and a non-sacrificial anti-graffiti top coat to ensure a sophisticated finish that will last for many years to come.
