Creevy National School in South Donegal had a renovation to the entire school in 2011. The finishes to the GP Hall, classrooms and common areas were excellent. The only problem you will have from this point is the large reflective surfaces. Like most National School halls, they are multi-purpose spaces, not just for Sports. This hall is used for drama and other activities where speech intellegibility is very important.
The Principal Aoibheann Kelly got in touch with Donegan Acoustics and we made a trip to Donegal to carry out a survey of the GP Hall, run an acoustic model and provide a quotation based on our findings.

The space is rectangle with a pitched roof with the following dimensions : 20m L x 10m W x 5.4 H ( average high ) given the pitch roof with the following surface finishes: Floor - Timber Sports Floor : Walls - Painted Block : Ceiling - Painted Plasterboard on cavity , Large strip of Double Glazing along ridge.

Our model identified a Tmf of 3.5 seconds, explaining why it was so difficult for a teacher to conduct a drama class within the space.
The desired Tmf for this space is 1.2 seconds.
Our calculations results in a treatment of 88 m2 of  abCOR-Original White panels 1200 x 1200 x 50 mm installed on both sides of the pitch ceiling in two rows, as wall space was not available due to the design of the hall. 

Another satisfied client with a fantastic bright and airy space for teachers to teach and students to learn, a space that is now Fit For Purpose!
