Porth & Tonypandy Middle Schools, R.C.T

Hunter Acoustics were appointed by Darnton B3 architects to provide acoustic surveys, design advice and commissioning for the two new Middle Schools (ages 3-11yrs) at Porth and Tonypandy in Rhondda Cynon Taff.

New BREEAM “Excellent” primary schools were developed at each site alongside refurbishment works to existing secondary school buildings.

These were acoustically challenging projects incorporating lightweight standing seam roofing with an exposed soffit which required careful design to control rain noise intrusion, flanking and reverberation times in first floor teaching spaces.
