OR Consulting are acting as low-carbon building services engineers, acoustic engineers and lighting designers on a unique luxury VIP club and dining experience for up to 200 guests.

The club opens into the Arena and is designed to provide a destination on both event and non-event days. The design accommodates bars suspended at multiple levels to give patrons a unique experience of the Arena and its events.

One of the challenges of this project has been to create flexible specialist lighting, acoustic, environmental and AVIT solutions, to allow the Club to provide multiple destinations, on both event and non-event days.

To meet these challenges:

  • The club’s audio and acoustic design has been designed, zoned and controlled to work as part of the wider Arena’s audio environment and also as a standalone venue.
  • The club’s specialist lighting “scenes” has been designed and controlled to work as part of the Arena but also as a series of VIP destinations.
  • The club’s environmental systems have been designed to create a micro-climate within the broader Arena.
  • A “duct-less” catering ventilation system has been designed to serve the VIP Club, which is one of the first of its kind in the UK.
