Hobsonville Point Primary & Secondary schools are the first public-private partnership (PPP) schools in NZ.
The consortium LIP which includes ASC Architects and Hawkins Construction selected Asona’s acoustic wall and ceiling systems because Asona could customise a solution to maximise the natural light of the buildings whilst providing fire safe, low VOC, high acoustic performance products with 80% recycled content combined with a recycle and renew programme for long term sustainability.
For the ceilings in the teaching areas and laneways a modified grid & tile ceiling system was developed and manufactured by Asona in preference to using the standard 600x1200 ceiling modules which would result in untidy small cut panels. Asona produced made-to-measure Triton 25 plank modules to fit in seamlessly with the architect’s skylight layouts.
This approach allowed for more skylights to be incorporated into the building and thus conveyed a greater amount of natural light into the teaching areas and laneways while still controlling the reverberation and background noise levels. Triton 25 has a 1S fire rating.
