Client: University College, London
Project value: £500k
Completion: September 2010
Located high above London’s Bloomsbury Theatre, UCL’s existing fitness centre was oversubscribed and jaded. A flat roof provided an opportunity to extend the facility, albeit on a very tight site with a live theatre below and existing adjacent gym all remaining in use throughout.
Significant structural challenges were overcome with the strengthening of the flat roof slab and extensive acoustic treatments to ensure that machinery could be supported and used with no noise reverberation into the theatre below.
