The Project

Pacy and Wheatley Acoustics have completed a Specialist Acoustic Plaster project in Barbican, London. Built following the Second World War to restore an area of London that suffered heavy damage in the blitz, the landmark Barbican estate is portrayed by brutalist concrete architecture. The building was previously a YMCA building and shall be named Blake Tower.

The Client Redrow shall be developing this into 74 state of the art apartments and penthouses. The marketing suite required Acoustic Plaster sound and reverberation control to ensure the possible clients experience the area in comfortable and peaceful surroundings.

The Solution

Pacy and Wheatley were employed to install the Ambient Acoustic Plaster system to achieve the comfort and aid speech intelligibility and listening experience for the visit of possible purchasers to the marketing suite. With the modern method of Acoustic Plastic solution, the minimalistic designs can be seen and offered without sacrificing acoustical comfort.

The project was executed, as with all Pacy and Wheatley contracts, with great pride and willingness to build relationships between ourselves and other contractors. The contractor Edgewater Contracts were good to work with and a very good relationship was achieved, we received the below testimonial regarding the project.

The marketing suite now benefits from low reverberation and sound control together with great aesthetics.


“A very good team who worked very hard under difficult circumstances. A pleasure to work with and would recommend future works for ourselves and other contractors, Thank you.” Charlie Henderson, Project Manager.
