    Project Summary

    The Gate Theatre is a protected structure and a landmark Dublin building within the grounds of the Rotunda Hospital.

    This project involved a services installation to provide ventilation to the theatre auditorium. A new AHU was positioned on an inner roof to supply air to a newly created plenum under the theatre floor. The plenum was created by sealing three distinct void spaces below the floor. The auditorium floor was cut beneath the seats to discreetly fit new grilles and allow a gentle air flow from the plenum below.

    The duct route was complex and travelled through very tight spaces above the Rotunda’s highly decorative Pillar Room and below the auditorium. Works took place in and around the public spaces and the theatre remained operational, with just one week closure to facilitate structural interventions for the duct route.

    Special Features

    • The programme of works was restricted allowing only a one week closure of the theatre. Works were ongoing around rehearsals, live shows and regular building usage.
