ST IVES Corn exchange Acoustic Treatment

We were tasked with helping Chris at the Saint Ives corn exchange with an ongoing issue with extremely disruptive noise issue. The corn exchange is a fantastic space but completely ruined from the excessive reverberation noise whenever events were held (everything from cinema, music events to boxing).

The first thing to address was to work out exactly the coverage needed to obtain the best acoustic performance from the products then we set about sourcing the materials (in this case it was agreed we would use the 50 mm Camira fabric wrapped recycled polyester panel) and in the clients chosen mustard finish.

The installation was carried out in a two day period and the results were nothing short of amazing! The hall went from a difficult space where even holding a conversation was a challenge to a now fully functional venue catering for all manner of events and giving this great building a new lease of life.

Please click on the link below to hear what the St Ives Corn exchange has to say 😊 Acoustic panels now installed….. Following on from the installation of the new large automated screen, the second in the series of improvements as part of the Corn Exchange ‘SOUND AND VISION’ Project has now been completed. 32 Acoustic panels have been affixed to the ceiling and front balcony soffits of the Charter Hall, each measuring 1.2 metres by 1.0 metre. And our initial assessments and the enthusiastic feedback we are already receiving from hirers indicate that these will considerably improve the acoustics in the Charter Hall. The funding for the panels and installation has come from a community grant from Mick George Ltd. ACE, Friends of the Corn Exchange provided the required third-party contribution. The photos below show the installation and the finished result. (Note the high tech laser method to ensure symmetry of the panels – not a single yardstick in sight, so an impressive installation by Silent Treatment Soundproofing Ltd. 😊) Do come in and see (and hear) the effect for yourselves ! And there are yet further improvements planned to the sound and lighting – so watch this space. Pics 1 and 2 by Jon Wright of Silent Treatment Soundproofing Ltd show the installation of the panels using laser technology.
