The Port Louis Theatre is at last going to be renovated. The long-awaited project is now well underway and being designed by a consulting team led by Morphos Architects and with Prodesign as MEP and sustainability Engineers.
Prodesign is looking after the design of all electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems, with a special emphasis on energy efficiency and achieving green buildings standards. The air-conditioning system there will be a displacement type and, because of the design complexity, sophisticated modelling tools are needed. We will be using Computational Fluids Dynamics to study the air movement inside the theatre and assess comfort levels. We also aim to predict as accurately as possible how fumes and smoke will spread in case of fire.
