Suspended Ceiling for Chippenham Motor Co

Client: Chippenham Motor Co
Value: £41k

The suspended ceiling for Chippenham Motor Co. was very complicated to achieve, particularly the upstairs profile where the customer required a vaulted roof line in two directions. Downstairs consisted of a series of 8 ceiling pockets formed by many bulkheads joining each other


The pockets had to be lined square to each other so that each ceiling set inside it looked square to the one either side of it in both directions. As we were aware of this, we ended up cladding the beams with fireline board so that we could angle them so that the sides were straight and parallel. If someone else would have done them, they would not have worried about the ceiling, and each pocket would then have angled cuts along each of the sides. Although this may appear trivial to many people and most fitters probably would not have worried about it, just clad the beams as quickly as possible and fitted the grid, then the customer would have got a poorer job. As it is the pockets are all square and you do not see any unsightly angles as Cre8tive takes a pride in making sure that things are carried out properly.


The upstairs ceiling was actually very complicated to do as the customer wanted to maximise the head room upstairs but it was not possible to raise it completely due to the edges of the building. We therefore set another ceiling higher, beyond the outer edges. The difficulty with this is in lining up all of the grids so that it would look right. In the time allocated to do the upstairs ceiling, a good 25% of the time nothing was actually built, the time was spent setting out the dimensions and working out all of the angles. As you can see we left some of the tiles out so that other services could be fitted, but if you are ever in Chippenham, please visit the Chippenham Motor Company and you will see what we mean. (They also sell cars).

New Suspended Ceiling in Calne

Client: Calne Leisure Center
Value: £6k

We were contacted just before Christmas by a surveyor who asked for our help in fitting a suspended ceiling throughout Calne Leisure Center, the only problem was that it had to be at cost and carried out over the Christmas Break ready for opening in January.

The idea was that the people of Calne purchased the Leisure Center and so the work was carried out by local people.

Suspended Ceiling Projects

There are many different types of suspended ceilings and the range of tiles now can be quite baffling. The current trend is to focus on sound performance within the office and this can be dealt with by using a special tile.

Suspended ceilings are used for a number of reasons, they are quick to install and mean that all the services required for offices such as pipework for plumbing and air conditioning, as well as power and data can be hidden out of sight. Access to the services is also much easier than using a traditional plasterboard or MF type ceiling as the ceiling tiles just need to be lifted from the grid.

There are many offices with old fissured tiles, with sagging tiles and a mottled grey look they make the office look very dated. We like to fit nice white clean tiles to give a fresh look.

 If you want to improve sound performance for a space, or want to hide some services, or have any questions about suspended ceiling types please give us a call on 01380 73 88 44
