Veale Associates has provided high end acoustic design for University College Falmouth’s purpose built Performance Centre, built at the Tremough Campus in Cornwall, UK. This was a large project came from various sources including the European Regional Development Fund Convergence Programme.

The University College’s Performance Centre is one of the most sophisticated facilities of its kind in Europe, dedicated to delivering innovative Performance degree programmes in Music, Theatre, Dance and Production. In addition it holds a public, year-round contemporary performance programme attracting local, regional, national and international artists.

The centre includes a recording studio with a state of the art teaching control room, an associated large composition and live performance area, two further sound control rooms, two isolation booths, a central patch area and a tie-line system to a number of practice rooms and studio areas.

“This has been a huge project overall and the implantation of this part of it has been an example for all to follow. We have been hugely impressed with the expertise of Veale Associates who have move onto real world working. I know that the students will be knocked out when they get their hands on the new facilities and start using them over the next few weeks.”
