Minster Building

Armourcoat creates exceptional acoustics at The Minster Building

Armourcoat surface finishes  have  played a central role in the  comprehensive refurbishment  of the iconic Minster Building in the heart of London’s business district.

The  interior  design,  by  architects BuckleyGrayYeoman for Ivanhoé Cambridge and its development/asset  manager Greycoat Real Estate LLP,  has created a major  repositioning of the building built around the central eight-storey atrium.  The ground floor reception is approached by a 30 metre  long boulevard from the new entrance on the corner of Mincing Lane and Great Tower Street.  The original entrance has also been retained to Minster Court piazza.

Over 600m2 of the Armourcoat Acoustic Plaster System applied to the ceilings

Designed to optimize the acoustics of interior spaces, the Acoustic Plaster system offers a clean and smooth mineral surface that can be applied seamlessly over large expanses to both flat and curved surfaces.  Comprising of a special mineral wool composite panel that is bonded onto the substrate and finished with a seamless layer,  the Armourcoat Acoustic Plaster System offers an elegant marble based plaster finish while allowing sound energy to pass through the surface.  The zero VOC system, which consists of 80% recycled material, achieves class '0' fire rating and a class 'A' Noise Reduction Coefficient rating.
