Toni-Anne contacted us to assist with bulkhead ceiling design and installation at ISG in Faerie Glen as part of her project.
She already had a clear picture in mind of a bulkhead ceiling with blue back lighting with a more rustic yet functional and aesthetically pleasing feel.
She desired to accentuate the boardroom and meeting room which to not only impress but also give a atmosphere of sophistication whilst still creating a relaxing and conducive environment with a bulkhead ceiling design.
All walls was re-finished and wall new wall paper applied. We had to cut through existing ceiling and fix the bulkhead ceiling frame directly to the slab and then make good the ceiling. New carpets was also fitted.
The final design was a rectangular bulkhead ceiling with a light trough, the drop from the ceiling to the bottom edge was carefully planned to fit in with the height and with of the room. Too little or too much of a drop is aesthetically displeasing.
It looks amazing and compliments the surrounding areas amazingly.
The choice of blue back lighting works surprisingly well with the rustic look for this specific bulkhead ceiling. The perfect blend of modern and rustic….
The structure of the bulkhead 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 structure is of utmost importance. If the structure is poorly constructed the end product will be of poor visual quality.After the bulkhead ceiling 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 ceiling 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!!!
