Tempe School Project
Project was staged over two years and involved secondary glazing of all classrooms, halls and teacher and administration offices. The project was funded by the federal government as part of Sydney Airport Noise Insulation Programme. Sound Barrier worked with architects and acoustic engineers during the preliminary stages to assist with the customised design of appropriate aluminium framing and glazing to meet the many different styles of windows within the school and the stringent design and acoustic criteria. Sound Barrier supplied joinery as required onsite, installation was only able to be undertaken during school holidays to minimise any disturbance to the school. Acoustic testing after completion of installation confirming Sound Barrier joinery exceeded the design criteria and the school students and teachers are no longer disturbed by the considerable noise of low flying aircraft during the approach and take off from Kingsford Smith Airport.
