Louvred Compound with Acoustic Panels at Dundee University

Lang+Fulton have supplied a bespoke louvred compound with integrated acoustic panels for Dundee University’s Institute of Medical Sciences and Technology.

A key challenge for the Lang+Fulton team was to propose a design optimized to the irregular site geometry while mitigating the noise generated by the Institute’s substantial HVAC-R system.

The Italia-80 compound was manufactured with the perimeter set at 10 different angles, including special posts to accommodate the varied directions. An acoustic shielding system was added to the back of the 3m panels, mounted on the posts and reinforced with horizontal supports, which met the requirements of the University Building Services Engineer’s noise impact assessment.
