LEISURE & CULTURERoyal Albert Hall Auditorium Cooling

Comfort and Wellbeing- 150 years ago theatre shows would be dimly lit by candlelight and stagehands would move all the equipment required for the performance. Today performers are illuminated by hundreds of powerful lights and equipment can be thrown around by powerful motors. Undeniably this has all led to a far better show for the patrons. But with powerful lighting and large motors comes a significant waste heat energy that needs somewhere to go.

This Grade 1 listed performance hall in the centre of London has come under some heat. When the seats are full, and the stage lights are flashing, the temperatures in the gallery can reach as high as 38°C. To combat this, we have designed the retrofit of 20 new Air handling units that will pump cool air into the gallery. Sadly, 3D modelling software wasn’t in popular use in the 1800, so coordinating the additional ductwork can’t be done as a desktop design, instead our engineers make regular visits to site to ensure all is coordinated.
