Newport University

Newport University


A new build university in Newport sitting alongside the River Usk. Topfix Interiors installed over 58,000m of cedar to create a dual plain-curved soffit with raking returns and reverse hip ends. The soffit was split 46:60 internally / externally. Topfix interiors also installed high performing acoustic partitions, suspended ceilings including MF with perforated plasterboard and mineral fibre tiles into grid, and acoustic rafts.

This project won Topfix Interiors the British Gypsum award for best installation.
