Tramshed

Key facts & challenges

Short Description
The Grade-II listed Tramshed in Cardiff required a programme of specialist construction works for the Victorian structure.First constructed in 1902 and located in a residential area, the Tramshed is a large industrial shed with brick external walls and a metal angled trussed roof. The first phase of the development is a 1,000 person capacity live music venue. The acoustic insulation system needed to be sufficient to cope with noise levels in excess of 100 decibels from live bands, while reducing to an absolute minimum any noise nuisance for surrounding residents. The solution was an acoustically insulated drywall ‘box‘ which could house the venue internally within the shed.
