SERSF Penryn Campus

Red Twin were appointed by the main contractor Midas Construction to provide acoustic design advice, and testing services for this c. £5.5M project.

The project includes the provision of 1200 m2 of BREEAM Excellent category 1 and category 2 laboratories, including collaborative learning spces for sciences and the business school. SERSF stands for the Science and Engineering Research Support Facility, which is part of the CEC (Centre for Ecology and Conservation).

The building achieved the design standards for offices and laboratories using natural ventilation strategies, and minimised the noise impact to the surroundings from the building services. The performances were proven by pre-completion acoustic testing.
