SAS International metal ceiling systems were designed, supplied and installed for the tallest building in Spain, Torre Caja Madrid.

A range of bespoke metal ceiling solutions were specified throughout the building; in the reception, auditorium, offices, corridors and lift lobbies.

Significant acoustic demands in the auditorium were met by using non-perforated aluminium panels with an acoustic pad on the reverse to prevent the sound generated in the plant room above being transferred to the auditorium space. The ceiling was also designed to allow sound generated within the auditorium to be absorbed to ensure sound reflection was limited.

SAS330 metal ceiling system was used in the open plan office areas. The prestigious top floor incorporated a large skylight centrally located within the open plan area. Installed by SAS Project Management, the internal skylight cladding had to be integrated into the design of the office ceilings, maintaining the alignment of the C-profiles.

The metal ceilings combine performance with aesthetics for a functional yet stylish finish for this modern office development.
