Technical ceilings for hospitals and medical centres: why is it so easy to integrate equipment and devices

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, News No Comments
Technical ceilings for hospitals and medical centres are a solution that easily and discreetly accommodates devices that improve the comfort of staff and patients. The key to technical ceilings for hospitals and medical centres lies in the system used to install the ceiling tiles that comprise the technical ceiling. This system leaves a space between the tiles and the plenum that can be used to house public address, air conditioning and security installations, in addition to the typical hospital fittings, like waters and gas pipes, communication devices between rooms, and so on. But the most important thing feature of this system is that thy are accessible ceilings, which make it possible to handle or replace a single tile without touching the rest of the ceiling. Thus, the ceiling can be quickly and easily adapted as the medical facilities evolve with new technology without requiring works that can cost both time and money. In addition, ceiling tiles used can be acoustic panels that help to improve the acoustics of these sanitary spaces, and they can be treated to reinforce their resistance to fire and humidity. Finally, from an aesthetic and superficial point of view these technical ceilings can have any look you want. Sometimes you choose ceiling tiles with clear melamine finishes, which enhance room lighting and create a relaxing atmosphere. This is the case of testing rooms, operating theatres or patient rooms. In other cases such as offices and meeting rooms, wood finishes are chosen to add a touch of elegance and distinction. Further information at comercial@spigogroup.com .

The use of wood cladding and wood ceilings in schools in Austria

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, Inspiration, News No Comments
The use of wood cladding and wood ceilings in schools in Austria and other central and northern European countries is not unusual. At the end of the day, they are areas with roots in the use of wood in construction and decoration. Following, we provide you with 5 good examples of the use of wood in the design of Austrian schools and nurseries.   Bilding Bilding, is a unique facility for aesthetic education and creative stimulation of children and young people, built in 2015 in Innsbruck. The project counted on the collaboration of numerous companies and was possible thanks to the free work of structural engineers, architects and expert planners. Of particular note are the light wood walls and wood ceilings throughout the interior of the building, which provide a warm atmosphere, free of distractions. Photos by Günter R.Wett and information obtained from www.plataformaarquitectura.cl           Klaus secondary school This is a very special project built in 2014 on the previous school of the town of Klaus that sought to reduce the building’s energy consumption. With a cost of only 3% over that of conventional building, a 70% reduction in energy costs was achieved. Wood, in different shades, is present in the wood slats of the façade and on the ceilings of the main rooms. Photos by www.klomfar.com and information obtained from www.plataformaarquitectura.cl and dietrich.untertrifaller.com                 Baslergasse primary school In this school in Vienna, the design ceilings and walls are made of laminated wood and, in general, the entire building is built with prefabricated wood components, thus contributing to the sustainability and efficiency of resources. Photos by Hertha Hurnaus and information obtained from www.plataformaarquitectura.cl and KIRSCH Architecture           Solarcity kindergarten Another clear example of the use of wood cladding and wood ceilings in schools in Austria. Again, the use of ecological solid wood in the interior guarantees a long life and a positive contribution to sustainability. Photos by Elisabeth Grebe and information obtained from www.plataformaarquitectura.cl and X architekten             St. Johann-Köppling kindergarten The St. Johann-Köppling kindergarten was designed in 2011 by Reitmayr Architekten, starting from the typical, and very versatile, gabled structure. The interiors are very bright and combine wood with other colder materials. Photos by Paul Ott and information obtained from www.plataformaarquitectura.cl and Reitmayr Architekten     .

Wood slat panels for offices: the reception hall at Envaplaster

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, News, Spigogroup wood projects No Comments
Slat panels for offices are the choice decorative solution preferred by many companies when they open new facilities or undertake the reform of those currently in use. The use of wood slats in inner linings (walls and ceilings in workplaces) brings elegance and warmth, which is why many businesses use them in those spaces where the company wants to show its best image: reception, waiting rooms and customer service offices. Today we bring to our blog a job we did in 2017 for the Navarrese plastic container manufacturer, Envaplaster, in its new, 25,000-square-metre facilities, located in Polígono de la Alberguería, Viana, Navarre. The slat panels for offices they chose an elegant finish in natural varnished obeche wood and were placed at the reception desk of the company and in the nearby visitor transit areas, like the wall that houses the lift for people. Everything was made to measure. We installed obeche wood slats and Spigoline corporate gray varnish and vertically stained, completed with smooth corporate gray lacquered panelling, veneered oak panelling and an indirect light diffuser panel made of texture lacquered MDF. In addition, various carpentry jobs were carried out, including bespoke furniture for offices and the installation of flush doors on the outside. If you would like to see all the finishing options in slat panels for offices, please visit the section in our website devoted to Spigoline , the Spigogroup brand of panels and wood slats inner linings.   .
