Bulk Head Ceiling
Bongani contacted us to assist with bulk head ceiling design and installation at UTS in Gosforth Park as part of his project.
He already had design in mind with the focus on an aesthetically pleasing outcome.
He desired to accentuate the boardroom and meeting room with bulk head ceiling to give a atmosphere of sophistication whilst facilitating a conducive environment for meetings.
We were given a empty factory floor and had to build drywalling and a steel truss system to support the bulk head ceiling from.
The final design decided upon incorporated down lights, the drop from the bulkhead to the bottom edge was carefully planned to fit in with the height and width of the room. Too little or too much of a drop is aesthetically displeasing.
The final product is amazing and fits the boardroom perfectly.
The choice of a boardroom directly on the factory floor works extremely well with this this specific bulk head ceiling creating the professional environment within the industrial layout of the factory.
The structure of the bulk head ceiling was created from galvanized main tees and cross tees as per supplier recommendation. Corner sections done with galvanized angle and all secured with wafer tech screws.
It needs to be noted that accuracy when constructing the bulk head ceiling structure is of utmost importance. If the structure is poorly constructed the end product will be of poor visual quality.After the bulkhead structure was completed 9.5mm Gypsum board cladding was used and corners trimmed with corner beads. Care needs to be taken that this done properly as a corner bead fitted a slight bit out of position will have a disastrous effect on the final aesthetic look.
After all of the above was completed two coats of Rhinolite was applied to the bulkhead and skimmed to a smooth flawless finish. Toni-Anne and her team then applied paint and fitted LED strips lights and pendulum lights.Both the bulkhead for the boardroom and meeting room was constructed and finished in only 3 days, which in it self is mammoth of a task not only to complete in 3 days, but also to do with detail and perfection.Well done to the team!!!
