PROJECT OVERVIEW

Hensall’s involvement in the project saw us install all lighting to the new building, which also included specialist theatre and effects lighting alongside essential emergency and and lighting. Security and safety concerns were addressed with the installation of fire and security alarms, as well as CCTV.

Mechanical works included all heating, ventilation and noise attenuation installations, which included technical floor ventilation and AC cooling. In addition, we installed low noise chiller and chilled water distribution alongside hot and cold water distribution and above ground drainage.

The project proved especially challenging due to the requirement for the most complex wiring and containment system Hensall has ever designed and installed. Due to the nature of the building and its use as a performing arts centre, acoustical requirements were a top concern, which meant it was essential that each element of the work had a separate containment system to avoid interference during performances in the theatre. Although this resulted in a time consuming project, we were incredibly proud of the end result, which was second to none.

TESTIMONIAL

“Hensall have worked closely with the school to provide a complete mechanical and electrical solution for our new Sports Hall and Sixth Form Centre.

From design through to installation they were responsive and flexible, actively seeking to provide the school with a cost effective and practical solution to meet our needs. Totally professional and reliable, it has been reassuring to have Hensall as part of the team.”
