"Buildings are for People" - Why False Ceiling?

“Be it Hospital, Educational, Office and other buildings are constructed to perform certain activities by the People and for the people” - Buildings Are for People.

“Buildings Are for People" reveals how a building’s surfaces, shapes, size materials "interact" with people and the environment. Exploring buildings from their physical, sensible and operative perspectives, “Buildings Are for People" illuminates how they define space, afford experiences, and impact environments to create people- an environment-friendly architecture.

The contemporary thought process about false ceilings - The idea that removing a ceiling would make a space more sustainable encouraged the move to open plenum spaces. "They thought that by 'de-materializing' they would gain sustainability," says Davis Brayman.

Effective building design requires balancing multiple objectives: aesthetics, environmental factors, and integration with the building's infrastructure hence there arises a need for false ceilings for better acoustics, aesthetics, ambience, lighting, covering service lines and for better environmental impacts.

Why False ceiling?

Open Plenum design has certain initial benefits during the construction phase. For example, removing the False ceiling from the building design may reduce time of completion, reduce coordination and perceived cost. However, there will be an inverse impact on maintenance and Environmental factors that contribute to the people performance.

Environmental factors such as Acoustics, Fire Protection, Indoor Air Quality, Lighting are some of the key aspects that contribute to the People performance and Buildings.


Wall, Floor and Ceilings are the primary surfaces in a building interior spaces apart from other added surfaces like furniture. From the environmental aspect, all the surfaces contribute to People performance. So, it is very important to choose the appropriate Surface materials for each application. Few application examples are Class rooms, ICU room, open office spaces, etc.

False ceiling is one of the surfaces in the interior spaces and it has very important role in contributing and mitigating open plenum concept. There is a history to this solution and it is also evolving.

To choose a false ceiling material, it is highly recommended to have better understanding about the applications, the environmental factors that may be required for each application and integration.

Virtual Learning Sessions

So, we are inviting you to join our learning sessions which will focus on:

1. Why False Ceilings?

2. Environmental factors that contribute to People and Buildings.

3. Integration & Installation

The facilitator will be Murali Venkateswaran.

He has two learningful decades in selling False Ceiling. In another decade, he had polished him up in Learning and Development. Whether it is modular false ceiling Technical and installation knowledge, selling skills, team building dynamics, or developing a learning strategy for the organization, Murali’s facilitative skills and operational acumen catalyze.

Session Fee - ₹150

Thank you.
