Acoustix Sound Solutions - Plantronics

Plantronics is the world leader in the manufacture and supply of headsets across multiple sectors. Its customers include the aviation industry, astronauts and every Fortune 100 company as well as individuals worldwide.

Acoustix Sound Solutions Plantronics case studyThe company recognises the need for smarter, flexible working and staff well-being. With these philosophies in mind they asked Acoustix to provide advice to ensure their new UK headquarters in Royal Wootton Bassett would create a comfortable acoustic environment for their staff and visitors.

The business wanted to combine departments from three buildings into one newly fitted out building, predominantly open plan with bookable and non-bookable meeting rooms. The advice from Acoustix included the ceiling specification, office layout and screens, partition specification and the use of sound masking throughout.

The Rockfon Sonar ceiling tile was selected as it reflects no sound, reducing the propagation of noise in the open plan areas and reducing reverberation in the meeting rooms.

The 120 degree desk system reduces the direct path of sound from occupants, increasing concentration whilst maintaining the collaboration within teams.

The FabriSorb stretch fabric wall panels further reduce reverberation in meeting and break out areas, the fabric being printed with Plantronics own graphics and marketing material.

The Lencore Spectra iNet sound masking system is installed throughout the building, raising the background sound level to create comfort in the open plan area and speech privacy in the meeting rooms.

In addition to developing world leading headsets Plantronics also actively support their clients in smarter working by passing on their experience.

Commenting on the impact of Acoustix solutions at the head office, Philip Vanhoutte, MD of Plantronics EMEA said “At Plantronics, we are passionate about creating a workplace environment that is flexible, comfortable and technologically-advanced for our staff. To do this, we needed intelligent advice, for both the simple and complex solutions we desired for our redesign. To put it simply - Acoustix delivered on our dream. Their advice was solid and has made our office the smart, flexible and welcoming environment it is today.

The results speak for themselves.”
