London - TV Studio

This TV Broadcast centre in North London, is the largest new TV studio to be constructed for several years in London. The main studio, measuring over 10,000 sq/ft, incorporates all LED lighting suspended on several motorised lighting gantries. A separate and dedicated energy centre was constructed housing three 1MVA 11kV generators, three 800kW air cooled chillers, three UPS systems of 2MVA total capacity and 11 LV switchboards. A new 11kV electrical supply was brought into the site and integrated with the standby generator system for no-break seamless transfer back to mains following a power outage. Being located within a residential area, high acoustic criteria was imposed on the design, together with a desire to be aesthetically pleasing, hence the living wall exterior to the energy centre.
