Kuwait University chooses Gyproc for new athletics centre

More than 30,000m2 of Gyproc high performance linings have been selected for Kuwait University’s showpiece athletics centre.

The new Student Activities and Athletic Facilities (SAAF) development is based around two main athletic buildings providing shared competitive and recreational facilities for students from the University’s 17 colleges. It includes a track and field stadium, indoor tennis centre and a range of outdoor sports and student support facilities.

Helping to create an internal environment capable of supporting the many different activities, will be 22,000m2 of Gyproc’s Rigitone perforated acoustic ceiling boards to provide high levels of acoustic control and a modern aesthetic to the vast ceiling expanses.

External soffits and ceilings will be lined with newly developed Glasroc X sheathing boards to protect them from the humid and harsh external environment, while in wet rooms, gyms and other damp and wet areas, 7,000m2 of Gyproc M2TECH boards will provide the highest possible level of protection from damp and mold.

The gypsum-based boards, which will contribute points to the project’s target LEED Silver Green Building rating are being installed by drylining specialist, Arabtec, on behalf of Main Contractor SEG Qatar.
