Client: The Open Academy, Norwich
Type of works: retractable seating system for Academy school hall & drama theatre.
The Academy was looking for a system that would enable the unit to fit directly to the floor as the rear wall was not load bearing.
THe Hussey Seateay system was engineered to feature a freestanding design.
Maxam Plus platforms were chosen by the client due to the resilience the system would provide within an educational environment, as well as the value for money the product offered. Club Bench and Backrests were fitted to the platforms, providing the end user with a flexible and comfortable bleacher seating solution. The fascia boards and upholstery colours were matched to the schools colour scheme.
The seating installed in the drama theatre is a key feature of the schools new facilities and enables the multipurpose use of space as the retractable seating allows a large hall to be converted to a seated auditorium within minutes.
