Project: New erection

Gjerdrum school, which was ready to use when school started in the autumn of 2009, has been praised and prices both in Norway and abroad.

In this school an emphasis has been placed on sustainable and maintenance-free materials. Therefore, a lot of plaster and steel was used in the building. Gypsum-based acoustic ceilings have also been widely used to satisfy the requirements for good acoustics, aesthetics and sustainability.

A good and balanced distribution of removable Gyptone ceiling in exposed T-grid system have been achieved, and large continuous ceiling surfaces of Rigitone ceiling boards have been mounted on Gyproc GK grid system.
