Working alongside Autograph, Showsound, and A Star project management we provided upgrades to three of Latymer’s multi use spaces.
In the dance and drama studio we removed under utilized electric chain hoists and replaced them with a mix of fixed points and manual chain hoists.
In the School’s main theatre, we replaced dimmers racks commissioned when the building was constructed with new ETC Coloursource racks to future proof the space. We also provided new hoist control for the electric chain hoists that were re-purposed from the drama studio so that the school’s main acting space has lighting bars accessible to all.
Another technology upgrade in the theatre saw us provide a mixture of Martin Quantum and Aura moving lights to increase the versatility of the schools lighting system as well as servicing their existing Vari-Lites to ensure they continue to provide years of service.
The schools main hall however had arguably the largest improvement. A versatile space used for everything from assemblies to piano recitals that had been temporarily used as a library and needed a refresh. New houselights from GDS (the third space at Latymer to have them installed), Stage lighting from ETC (Coloursource LED units), highlights to the roof and pinspots (remotely focus-able units from RC lighting) created a variety that will ensure that the main hall is fit for whatever is thrown at it. The use of LED technology throughout (including dimmable lamps in the existing chandeliers) means that reliability is foremost in this busy room where downtime is minimal.
