The International Convention Centre, Wales, opened its doors in September 2019. This state-of-the-art meeting venue covers all types of activities from smaller meetings to group training, conferences through to conventions and large exhibitions. This dynamic flexible space has no fewer than 15 meeting rooms, a 4,000sqm pillar free hall and an auditorium which can host up to 5000 delegates at the same time. Some of the key criteria were to ensure that the hall provided flexibility with quick set up time, easy operational handling, great acoustics and a finish that would match the perimeter walls.
HUFCOR were selected to plan, prepare, and install over 240 movable wall panels (and 10 parking pocket doors) in total. The project comprises of 16 different walls in total, 11 walls in function rooms and other areas and 5 walls in the main function hall with 9 metres high panels spanning an areas 50m x 70m in total. All of them fit the interior design and allow an acoustic integrity of at least 54db Rw.
All tracks installed in this area are designed to offer great flexibility and move the panels through the hall into the desired set-up. This hall can be divided into many different configurations to suit the needs of the event requirements.
The whole concept was designed to act as flexible as possible and to increase revenue by using the same space for multiple events.
