CISCA honors WoodTrends by Sound Seal with a construction excellence entry of note

AGAWAM, Mass. – July, 23, 2015 –Sound Seal, a leading manufacturer of acoustical and noise control products serving the industrial, architectural, commercial and construction industries, is pleased to announce they have been honored with a construction excellence entry of note from the Ceilings and Interior Systems Construction Association (CISCA). The recognition is for two recent install projects using WoodTrends products.

The Austin Chinese Church in Austin, Texas selected its WoodTrends WoodGrille™ceiling panels for their acoustical needs. The WoodGrille panel was the ideal choice for this religious facility, which wanted to deliver an improved acoustical experience for its congregants while adding to the design aesthetics of the space. Another important factor in the decision was longevity. With the intent of the install being long term, the WoodGrille product with a birch veneer finish will hold up to the fluctuations in temperature and humidity that is typical for the region.

Marisco Hall Imaging Research Building, A university lab and cancer research facility,serves students and faculty within both UNC-Chapel Hill’s School of Medicine and the Eschelman School of Pharmacy. One of the largest buildings on campus, the 343,000sq.-ft. structure is a centerpiece of UNC’s research community, featuring state-of-the-art imaging equipment. In this case, the decision was made to move forward with WoodTrends Custom Ceiling Panels for this 10,000 sqft. ceiling project. The project team sought to deliver the look and feel of a custom mill work finish while sourcing a product that incorporates sustainable qualities, making the WoodTrends Custom Ceiling Panels the perfect choice.

“This is great news for our recent WoodTrends projects. CISCA is a very well respected association and to have our products recognized is something we are very proud of”, said David Ingersoll, Business Development Manager at Sound Seal. “Both of these projects posed complex challenges that we were able to overcome working with a team of construction and architectural partners. In both cases, upon product completion, the client was pleased with the acoustic and aesthetic value that the WoodTrends products brought to their space.”
