At 3,200 sq metres, the building is amongst the largest art venues in the UK. This bespoke and technically challenging project was commissioned by Colchester Borough Council as part of the cultural quarter regeneration.
Fireclad carried out the construction of curved and straight partitions to a height of 11 metres including a curved auditorium structure that will facilitate 200 people. The solid ceilings were installed to a design of a curvature in two directions; an acoustic spray finish was then applied to 80% of the finished ceiling.
Fireclad also carried out plastering, fire protection, firestopping and installation of fire barriers.
