DEFENDING THE EUROPEAN CITY OF CULTURE
Flood Protection for Hull’s New Theatre

 

The problem:

Hull is the European City of Culture for 2017 and as such has seen plenty of new construction projects. The city was badly flooded in 2007 and concern for flooding has been expressed as sea levels continue to rise. Therefore many of these projects are having flood protection designed at the architectural stage. Floodsafe Projects were brought in as a sub-contractor to Aquobex Ltd at the groundworks stage for the construction of Hull’s new theatre. ¬†As a full management sub-contract package, we liaised with the manufacturer on design, carried out the groundworks and then installed the flood defences. The project was then handed back over to the Aquobex client Sewell Construction.

 

Our solution:

Flood Protection for the theatre included:-

  • Large Scale demountable aluminium barrier systems at large entrances and glass frontage
  • Small barrier systems at personnel doors

 

The result:

The scheme was successful for the clients and a subsequent scheme is now underway at the neighbouring premises, The Ron Dearing University Technical College (UTC building), again for Sewell Construction and Aquobex.
