Comcast Call Center

The architect for the new sprawling Comcast Call Center in Chelmsford Massachusetts knew from past experience that acoustical control would be paramount in this wide open office setting. This retrofit application, applied to a 1.5” fluted deck, seamlessly provides not only a Noise Reduction Coefficient of .75, but supplies the staff with a quiet and relaxing work environment.

Skanska Offices

Skanska USA Building Inc.

Skanska USA Building Inc. not only taps K-13 for thermal performance in their parking garage applications, but recently had their office ceilings treated with K-13 as well, this time for acoustical performance and reverberation control. The current popularity of open ceilings and exposed mechanicals in office settings has created the demand for a spray-on application that fits into the industrial interior design look.

“Just do it!” doesn’t only apply to Nike anymore. The new Converse headquarters said “just do it” on all ten floors of their new offices. From SonaSpray “fc” applied to fluted metal decks, to custom color SonaKrete on precast concrete, the acoustical materials were utilized in every area from open work spaces to executive conference rooms. Trimmed into the existing concrete beams and structural steel, the application maintains the clear lines of the original structure.

No drop ceiling tiles in these specifications. The new Greentown Labs owners wanted an open feel with exposed mechanicals and structural elements. Although a very popular design request, Silverman Trykowski Associates knew there would still be the need for acoustical control. K-13 applied directly to the fluted metal deck allowed full view of all construction components without any sacrifice on performance.
