HVAC Installation in an O2 auditorium

Building the atmosphere at the ‘Mamma Mia’ Party House

The full design, supply and installation of ventilation systems for 14 large-scale paint booths.

The sizeable paint booths are used for painting and baking aviation propellers that require a wide ambient temperature range for each stage of the process. An ultra efficient heating and ventilation system was fully designed in Revit to ensure capacity and safety, before being successfully installed on site.

Key challenges:

  • Required temperature in each booth ranged from 23°C – 85°C
  • Health and safety requirements for using hazardous materials
  • Immense size of booths necessitated large ductwork
  • Installation required during the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown


  • Revit-designed system included gas pipework alongside the ventilation system
  • Installed 3x trailer-mounted carbon filters and a bespoke inlet plenum filter
  • Supplied and installed 3x 20m high, 1200mm diameter stainless steel exhaust ducts with supporting steelwork and a mezzanine platform for exhaust duct sampling
  • ‘Key Worker’ status was granted allowing us to work on site within Covid-safe guidelines

Products Supplied:

26 fans, 12 direct fire gas burners, 2 air handling units, over 200 actuators, sensors and switches
