Brookhaven College Science Building

Farmers Branch, Texas

Project Type: Drywall

General Contractor: 3i-J.E. Dunn

Detailed work was required in every aspect of this project. Nowhere was this more apparent than in the building’s main lecture hall, an 80-foot by 57-foot space designed to seat 120. There were three main features of the lecture hall: custom-built acoustical wall panels, a stair-stepped ceiling, and a unique built-in place serpentine ceiling treatment at the front of the room. Working around a host of fellow subcontractors, this space took two months to complete. Other unique features of this project were the “cloud” ceilings located in the corridors and public areas. These “floating” ceilings are suspended with aircraft cables and required exact laser measurements to meet the architectural standards. Trespa, a branded, pressed plywood was added to BakerTriangle’s scope for the first time on this project.
