Plant Skid Installation at London’s Latest Performance Venue

Mechanical Movements have been back in London, installing a plant skid within the Sadler’s Wells East building in Stratford. 7 years in the making, the launch of this highly anticipated performance venue is due to take place in 2023, and our dedicated team have played an integral part in ensuring the building is ready in time for the official opening.

Having received the plant skid prior to the commencement of works, we carefully dismantled the equipment, separating it into two 900kg vessels and the 560kg skid base. It was essential to break apart the skid because of restricted access to the plant room, located on the mezzanine level of the building.

Two Mechanical Movements lorries were used to deliver the components to site, where we then utilised a Terex 2500 Telehandler to unload the lorries, before operating a hoist to manoeuvre each component up into the mezzanine plant room.

Once each part had been carefully positioned in their final places, our Installation team were able to step in to rebuild the plant skid, fitting all the pipework and valves which had previously been removed.
