RequirementsProvide active ventilation for the gallery area
ObjectiveMeet COVID-19 Safety Precations and allow the gallery to re-open
Z-arts, Manchester is an arts and theatre venue for children and families.
To allow the gallery area to re-open to the public, improved ventilation was identified as a key requirement of their COVID-19 Safety Precautions.
The ceiling was already populated with electrical cable routes, lighting rigging, fire detection etc., and we would need to plan the installation of ductwork and vent units into this already congested area.
The Tiger Who Came to Tea and the adventures of Mog the Forgetful Cat
A great deal of care was required to complete the works around an existing exhibition in the gallery. This fixed exhibition and associated lighting rigging could not be moved.
Existing window openings were modified to mount the intake and outlet units for the fresh air ventilation.
The finished works were completed to specification, which included black finished ductwork as detailed by the client.
