Ceiling Panels – Hackney Marshes Changing Rooms

Gooding Aluminium are a respected national and international supplier of a wide range of high quality aluminium sheets, aluminium profiles and ‘made to order’ aluminium products with ‘invisible fixing solutions.

Gooding Aluminium were the perfect supplier when Hackney Marshes, whom are famous for being the ‘grassroots’ in amateur football, had to update the facilities they provide to hundreds of players and spectators.

The London Borough of Hackney developed an ambitious vision for the site, recognising its community value and pivotal location adjacent to the Olympic Park. Features of the new building include community and spectator facilities on the first floor, with changing rooms located at ground-floor level with provision for disabled players.

Gooding Aluminium manufactured and supplied mill finish single and double folded perforated aluminium ceiling trays, throughout the corridors of the South Marsh Community Hub building project.

The aluminium ceiling panels are attached to specially produced aluminium angle with rivet nut fixings. The rivet nut fixings provide an excellent solution where components are joined together to form a solid anchor, providing a clean finish to the ceiling panels without damaging the material’s surface.

The ceiling panels were installed throughout the corridors that connect 27 changing rooms in the hub. With its excellent corrosion resistance, mill aluminium (untreated) was selected as being the most suitable and cost effective finish for the ceiling panels.

Aluminium production, recycling and surface finishing

Gooding AluminiumGooding Aluminium believes in, and is therefore committed to, policies that provide for sustainable development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own requirements.

There is a growing awareness within all of us of the many environmental issues that are developing our values and driving demand for ‘green’ products and services. More and more client specifications are calling for environmentally conscious material selection. The aluminium industry has appreciated for some time that today shapes tomorrow. Many advances in production technologies are being made that are helping to conserve resources, reduce emissions and eliminate disposal issues in the production of primary aluminium. Environmental issues are frequently complex and contested. We therefore only seek, in this part to provide a broad outline of the environmentally significant aspects that are at the heart of aluminium production. Information on life cycle performance and surface finishing technologies is also provided.

Sustainability

There is generally, particularly within the architectural industry, an increasing emphasis being placed on sustainability.

Nature has fortunately provided generous supplies of aluminium; it is the 3rd most common element and the most abundant metal. Only silicon and oxygen are more plentiful. Over 7% of the earth’s crust is made up of bauxite (from which aluminium is produced). Aluminium is considered harmless to animals and plants. It is reassuring to know that even based on current rising usage rates there are many hundred year’s worth of supplies remaining.
