The Benefits of Suspended Ceilings

While it may not be obvious at first, a ceiling can make or break any space and have a major impact on how an entire space is perceived. For example, a carefully designed ceiling can make a smaller space appear larger and more open. People are generally happier and more productive in spaces more open and an appropriately designed ceiling plays an important role in this.

It is also worth considering that suspended ceilings make it easier to replace tiles within the existing grid. Furthermore, they are an ideal medium for easy installation of lighting, speakers, cameras, and sprinkler systems.

Is the quality of the acoustics a high priority in your space? If so, suspended ceilings are the obvious choice. This is because they provide far superior acoustics to the alternatives, and for this reason they have become an essential part of modern life within medical, industrial, office, and retail environments.

Moreover, they are recyclable and comply with all environmental planning requirements and they are far more cost effective than the solid plasterboard ceiling alternative. Be assured that with Laide & O’ Brien, they are fast, clean and easy to install.

  • Laide & O’ Brien were contracted by Bushmount Nursing Home in Clonakilty Co. Cork to build two major extensions between 2011 and 2015.

    The first extension was an 18 bed 5000 sq. ft extension and the second build was a 26 bed 7000 sq. ft extension. They were complex and complicated builds as they had to be completed without affecting the operation of the existing nursing home.

    Both projects came in on time, to specification, and on budget and the quality of the workmanship was first class. What impressed me most was John and Cillian’s commitment to putting the client first and ensuring the residents of our nursing home were not disturbed during the build. Laide & O’ Brien are very much customer focused and they at all times strived to ensure that my requirements and objectives ...More

  • Laide & O'Brien built our house in Clonakilty in 2015. We went to tender with 5 builders and they provided the most detailed and transparent bid as well as a very competitive price. It was clear from the start that the standard of build was going to be exceptional and during the build we learned that their standards were even higher than our own.

    A build is a complex process with many parties involved, however we engaged Laide & O'Brien to manage all subcontractors and they made it look easy. They never approached us with a problem, they simply informed us when issues arose and advised us of the solution they had already prepared. As we both work full time and have two small kids this was a huge bonus for us. Working with them was an absolute pleasure and we knew our dream home was in g...More
