St Mark's Primary School - Drama Theatre
Battledore were awarded the design and build contract of converting an existing school gymnasium into dual draama and lecture theatre. The works were carried out to a tight programme in a confined space within a live school environment.
The tiered seating was formed on top of a battledore supplied large air handling unit, mounted within an accoustic enclosure, complete with in built controls. This ensured sufficient heating and cooling to the 200 seat theatre without jeopardising the theatre ambience. The heating was extended off the existing school heating system.
