Hussey Seatway TP and Club Bench at Hampton Gardens Secondary School

Hussey Seatway were delighted to be involved with the development of a brand new secondary school which opened in September 2017 in Peterborough, UK.

Hampton Gardens Secondary School opened with 180 Year & students.  Hampton Gardens will eventually accommodate 1500 students in Years 7-13 and will grow a year group each year until it reaches capacity.

 

Sport will be a key feature of school life. Students will be offered opportunities to join teams which will compete against neighbouring schools across Peterborough in leagues and cups.  Hussey Seatway provided them with seating for their multi use sports hall.  The system in place is a Seatway TP structure and a Club Bench.

The school has some outstanding facilities including a 3G All-Weather sports pitch, Amphitheatre and an impressive Learning Resource Centre which features a full height glazed wall.  Accommodation includes light and airy classrooms, an open and bright dining hall, dance and drama studios, a large sixth form centre at the top of the building with views across the site and a range of well equipped science laboratories including a specialist 'show lab'.

We worked with ATIC Group who are experts in design and installation within the education sector. 

 

 

 

Cambridge Corn Exchange - staggered seating replacement programme

Hussey Seatway is gradually replacing an old system at the Cambridge Corn Exchange.  Replacing the seats in batches the original seat was a Hussey Sentinel and they are being replaced by a new gallery fixed chair.

Doing the replacement programme in stages means that the venue's schedule is not interrupted.

The Cambridge Corn Exchange is the largest multi-purpose entertainment venue in the region. Run by Cambridge City Council, it presents up to 300 performances per year ranging from the hottest names from the rock and pop world as well as musicals, comedy, opera, ballet orchestral concerts and an annual Christmas show.  It can seat up to 2000 people, but has the ability to still feel intimate for smaller events.

 

Hussey Seatway will be attending the FSB International Trade Fair for Amenity, Sports & Pool Facilities this week in Cologne.

Hussey Seatway will be mingling with architects, planners, operators and investors from all over the world, all important decision makers from municipalities, sport clubs  and public pool facilities at the FSB in Cologne, this week.

The 4 day trade show from 7 to 10 November will have around 650 exhibitors from 45 countries presenting their projects and services.

Palace seating fit for a King (or Queen) - Hussey Seatway at Alexandra Palace

Hussey Seaway are delighted to be providing the seating for the £26.7 million East Wing restoration project of Alexandra Palace, in London.

With £18.8 million funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and £6.8 million from Haringey Council, the charitable trust is fundraising for the extra £1 million, to find out how you can help click here.

The Victorian Theatre was created in 1875.  In 1880 Alexandra Palace caught fire and the Great Hall, Banqueting Suite, former roller rink and the theatre dressing rooms were destroyed. Development and restoration work was undertaken and about 60 percent of the building re-opened in 1888.  However, the East Wing was left untouched, until now.

The new venue in the East Wing will be able to accommodate 1,300 people, but has also been cleverly designed to suit more intimate numbers too.  With specialised bespoke retractable side wing units in the stalls and fixed seating on the balcony, the Hussey Seatway installation allows a flexible use of the space.  The seating has been perfectly designed with timber arm rests, show wood panels and the exact seating colourway.

With the venue due to open in Autumn 2018, you can sponsor a Hussey Seatway seat.  For donating £450 you get a plaque with your name on the back plate of a seat in the historic theatre.

Hussey Seatway are so proud to be part of the huge team restoring this fantastic palace back to it's former glory along with Charcoal Blue Theatre Consultants and construction firm Wilmott Dixon.  Find out more about the restoration project here.

Intelligent Seating

One of our latest retractable seating installations at Goldsmiths University features integrated USB & Power charging points.  The increasing demand from customers has led us source a compact, high quality power unit which has been adapted for use with our retractable seating systems. This addition to our product range combined with scribe writing tablets provides the total solution for teaching spaces whilst also providing the flexibility of regaining the floor space when the system is retracted.

The PixelTuf sockets support intelligent technology that allows them recognise the attached device and automatically deliver the correct amount of power. The sockets sit virtually flush with the treads of the seating unit therefore providing a robust solution and allowing the chairs to easily fold down on top. All units are CE compliant and meet the relevant British Standards.

The sockets can be provided onto any new retractable unit and also an upgrade for existing installations.

SOSU C

telescopic seating

Hussey Seatway are pleased to announce the successful completion of their latest international project at SOSU C in Copenhagen. SOSU C welcomes a total of 5000 students a year and is one of the largest Health Care Colleges in Denmark offering vocational education and training.

Working closely with our Danish partner Houmoller Contracts Aps and BBP Architects we were awarded the contract to supply a high specification Telescopic seating system for one of the Colleges new lecture halls. To keep In touch with contemporary appearance of the venue we supplied our Decra chair with solid Oak show panels, the chair fold down mechanisms were fitted with concealed dual action gas struts to aid the lowering / raising of the chair banks which significantly reduces the set up time for the end user.

Oneof the architects key objectives was for the seating to ‘disappear’ when retracted. The telescopic system was designed and manufactured to precision to fit within the alcove at the back of the hall with minimal clearances. At the front of each row we installed Oak fascia boards that directly match the appearance of the surrounding wall panels to ensure a clean and consistent finish.  

As you will see from the photos the results are spectacular, looking forward to our next project in Denmark which has already been confirmed for Spring 2017.
