A Special Acoustical Ceiling for Mövenpick Hotel Bahrain

Application/Building Type: Hospitality
Name: Mövenpick Hotel
Location: Bahrain
Contractor: KONTRA
Featured Products: USG Boral Ensemble™ Monolithic ceiling system
In 2018, we started refurbishments of the Lobby, and restaurants on the Ground floor. The intent was to have an Acoustical monolithic ceiling that is lightweight, non-combustible, and seamless, all while bearing in mind the tight budget and strict deadline.

Once the system was selected and agreed upon by the General Contractor, installers started working with Ensemble™ quickly, easily, and with increased efficiency as the panels could be placed in either direction. All board surfaces were then sprayed with 2 – 3mm thick USG Boral Ensemble™ Spray applied finish.
