What to do when the critically acclaimed I, Malvolio is showing as part of Sydney Festival, but the city is experiencing endless heat waves?
The heritage listed Carriageworks Track 8 venue is cavernous but because of its heritage listing, air conditioning can not be permanently installed.
A hot stuffy venue would deter patrons so Sydney Festival organisers gave Active Air Rentals a call.
After speaking to the event organisers and analysing the venue, the Active Air team came up with a plan.
Using two of the latest 55kW packaged unit air conditioners and a 100kVA generator the Active Air team designed a temporary air conditioning solution. It pumped cooled air in through ducting which was complementary to the building’s looks and status.
The air conditioning worked perfectly and the show was a sell out. The building was left exactly as it was before the temporary air conditioning was installed and everyone was happy.
