Watkins Hire Events were contracted to supply full heating to an International awards ceremony at the iconic Templehof Airport in Berlin.
The heating system was of bespoke design in order to fit in with this historic building and the internal design scheme. After initial site visits from Watkins Hire Project Managers it was decided to use water based boiler system with internal air handlers. The building itself was 6,500m2 with a ceiling height of 14 metres. This was a particularly challenging installation and required over 3km of low pressure water hose.
Once the equipment arrived from the UK the engineers were flown to Berlin to install, which took 4 days. The even itself lasted 6 hours with Watkins Hire Events engineers on-site throughout to control the temperature as required by the producers of the show. Immediately after the show finished the equipment was dismantled overnight, loaded and sent back to the UK.
Following the success of this event, Watkins Hire were awarded the contract again the following year for Paris.
