DIT Grangegorman East Quad Dublin City Campus
Construction of the new Grangegorman campus for the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) is well underway. The East Quad buildings will accommodate the majority of academic activities and facilities required for the College of Creative & Cultural Industries.
The accommodation will include a 400 seat music performance hall, various practice spaces and creative arts & media studios. The gross internal floor area for the East Quad will be approximately 16,000 square meters.
After successfully designing the largest floating floor for the Cork School of Music, CDM Ireland has now been asked to install a state-of-the-art floating floor for the Grangegorman East Quad site. Over 2,100 m² of CDM-LAT, QDECK and WALL-FIX isolation systems will be installed to decouple the floor in order to improve acoustics by preventing vibrations and noise pollution to travel through the building layers.

Internoise 2018 – Lightweight Floating Floor Innovations
At Internoise 2018 in Chicago, CDM presented a paper on “Lightweight Floating Floor Innovations in Gym/Sports Applications” with focus on the dBooster technology. CDM’s discrete isolator system with a free-floating plywood raft on top helps acoustic engineers worldwide to provide better solutions for heavy impact noise applications to their clients.

CDM-QDECK, our latest innovation!
Our latest innovation CDM-QDECK is a high performance acoustic floating floor deck system. The system has a high bending stiffness for limited built-up height and is therefore well suited for transit areas inside buildings such as parking, supermarket and warehouse application types.
If you are you looking for a high performance floating floor with minimal height, then CDM-QDECK is the product for you.
