Project Brief: Providing a 60 seater lecture theatre with computerised lighting, acoustics and electric blinds to enhance the Trusts education programme for vets, scientists and people involved with the charity work.
Project Solution: The building was occupied and we had to work with the clients in refurbishing certain areas in phases. The Visitors centre is a Listed building therefore we worked closely with the conservation officer.
