The Farm Studios
Mason UK were specified to provide acoustic products and systems for the new Farm Studios on Newman Street in Central London. We worked on the design team, designing and installing the Mason FSN jack up floating floor system and supplying several other acoustic products to isolate the walls and ceilings on this highly specified project.

The new Birmingham Conservatoire is the first complete new build Conservatoire in the UK since 1987, and will provide state-of-the-art performance space and acoustical quality. It will comprise five performance venues, including a public concert hall with the capacity for 400 seats and a full orchestra, plus a recital hall at 150 seats and smaller experimental music space, organ and jazz rooms.

In order to achieve a background noise level of PNC15 in the three main halls, each was designed as a structurally separate concrete shell, the largest hall sitting above two others. Each of the three shells sit on isolation bearings which separate each from surrounding structure and isolate against ground-borne vibration.

The sources of the ground-borne vibration were predicted to be HS2 and extension of the Birmingham tram network. The original specification called for 5.0Hz bearings but this was reduced to 6.0Hz following a cost benefit analysis. While 5.0Hz is achievable with rubber bearings (without moving to much more costly spring bearings) the difference in thickness and therefore cost compared to 6.0Hz is significant.

Mason UK engineered and supplied all the bearings required to support the three shells. We worked closely with the structural engineers and steelwork fabricator to integrate the bearings, because the use of rubber does affect the structural design and the engineering of load transfer plates.

Every Mason bearing is tested in the factory and engineered to last the life of the building without inspection or maintenance. We delivered all the bearings in a very tight timeframe to meet the contractor’s schedule.

Just thought we would share one of our latest projects with the group:

St.Gobain
Mason UK were brought in by IAC Acoustics to design a Floating Floor System for an Anechoic Chamber at the New St Gobain Plastics facility in Bristol.
Our in house engineers designed the Floating Floor using the Mason Industries FS Helical Spring Jack Up System. The floor was cast in a pit cut into the structural slab.
See link below for more details and photos on this project:

Stone Grove
Mason UK were contracted to design lateral building restraints to tie two buildings together structurally, whilst still being separated acoustically.
The load was significant, so normal catalogue wall ties could not be used. We designed bespoke assemblies to suit
