PBS CREATIVITY HUB

PBS CREATIVITY HUB


PBS have just opened their new Creativity Hub in G’Mangia as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations. The Hub is the first part in a series of projects aimed to launch National Television and Radio into the next 50 years of transmissions through the use of the latest cutting edge technology.


 

 

 

The project lies in what was Rediffusion House, a MEPA protected and scheduled building due to it architectural importance. C&C were entrusted and were responsible for the design of the building engineering services which besides catering for the requirements of both the occupants and TV / Radio stations with their associated technical prerequisites, had to respect the integrity of the building itself. The brief included the installation of the latest technology in digital broadcasting and the services had to cater for futuristic technologies.


 

An experiment that worked on this project was the use of a number of contractors, some being competitors of each other to work together towards a common goal, to complete this project on time and to the high standards set by the Client.


This was not just another project done by C&C as designing services for radio and television studios is a rare and unique opportunity especially when this is done for the number one radio and TV station on the Island. This included for the design of special acoustics for the services and especially the airconditioning systems while keeping them effective and with the lowest cost possible.


 

 

Another area where the technology was the latest and most sophisticated was with the lighting and controls. Extensive use was made of LED’s and special control and dimming equipment that could be set and preset for each stage setup. Apart from this the aesthetics were of prime importance with a lot of effort afforded to the high level of finishes.


The building also has a building management system that makes it one of the most modern and intelligent buildings in Malta.


The designs incorporated a number of energy saving measures including the control of lighting and air conditioning with presence detectors, dimmable lighting for public spaces, rain water harvesting for use in irrigation and WC flushing, fresh air installations, access control employing NFC technology, comprehensive fire fighting systems including inert gas suppression for rack rooms and robotic archives and a building management system to control the various systems. Accessibility was also improved by the installation of lifts linking all the floors of the building.
