CASE STUDY

Millsreef Winery

The Millsreef Winery needed to upgrade their Barrel Room facility which is used for conferences, shows and private functions.

The Challenge

The award winning Millsreef Winery, located in Bethlehem, Tauranga, have recently upgraded their Barrel Room facility which is used for conferences, shows and private functions.

This superb 600m2 space, located in the basement of the winery, had encountered one major drawback; there was an issue with acoustics due to reverberations with the concrete walls and floor.

Other challenges in finding an acoustic solution of the venue included:

  • The existing ceiling had foam insulation installed which was necessary to maintain the thermal performance of the room
  • Tight schedules and
  • Limited access to the function room while not in use

The Solution

The goal was to use a product that could absorb most of the echo while not detracting from the ambience of the space. With the help of specialised acoustic reverberation calculations and costing options, Novahush Panel Absorber was chosen as the perfect candidate for this project due to its industrial look and superior acoustical performance.

Novahush Panel cloud design meant that very little damage was done to the existing ceiling, which solved the challenge of maintaining the existing foam insulation. The project was carefully managed by Forman Building Systems Rotorua, in conjunction with Millsreef and Forman Commercial Interiors, Rotorua, as the contractor, to ensure the limited disruption to the venue.
