What did the project involve?

The project works included the fitting of metal frame stud walls, ceilings and bespoke ceiling features, and the installation of the auditoria stepping. The scope also included the fit-out of all areas including the W/C, projection rooms, disabled access rooms, lobbies, auditoria and corridors.

The joinery works were delivered in-house by Phelan, and all M&E works were included within the contract. As a design and build contract, Phelan were responsible for delivering all of the acoustic detailing required to result in the acoustically sound venue demanded by today’s audience.

What challenges did the project team face?

Based within the £150-million Genting Resorts World complex at Birmingham’s NEC, this 11-screen fit-out posed significant challenges - not least, the remedial works from the shell contractor, which caused a significant delay. In order to mitigate these delays, which remained outside our control, Phelan provided excellent site management to ensure the most expedient approach was achieved.

What stand-out features did the project boast?

The final project was delivered with zero defects and to the exacting standards of Cineworld, one of the leading players in the cinema industry.
