Sustainably improving Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre @lime_products

“Sustainability, safety and strength were key for us when carrying out the remedial works at the Globe Theatre,” says Deborah McGhee, head of building operations at Shakespeare’s Globe.

The Globe Theatre stands in the London Borough of Southwark, boasting an affluent history, with the current structure being the third to stand on the site.

Originally constructed in 1599, the first structure was destroyed by fire in 1613. The second structure was built following the blaze but was subsequently demolished in 1644 after the closure of all theatres. This left the site empty until 1997, when the third, and current, Globe Theatre was constructed.

Optimum 200 stairlift is a game changer @Abilityltd

The newly re-designed Optimum 200 is a game changer when it comes to incline stair lift design and innovation. The stair lift now comes with a graphic display panel which keeps the user up to date with the operation status and importantly also indicates if the stop button has been depressed or if the unit is not located on its charging points. Both of which are unnecessary and expensive reasons for breakdown call outs.

The Importance of Delivering Hot Water with Temperature Control @rinnai_uk

The supply & use of hot water is vital to the efficient function of almost all industries. From NHS Healthcare to Care Homes to food production, hot water is critical yet often an overlooked integral part of the system design is the overall ability to accurately control hot water temperature. This capability can allow you to pre-emptively tackle or avoid issues arising from poor hygiene regimes or bacteria. The significance of hot water temperature control itself is being given a lot more attention, as seen in a CIBSE journal article entitled “Taking the temperature – domestic hot water” which looked at the potential of reducing carbon and providing modern, safer low energy solutions simply by focusing more on temperature and revising guidance (CIBSE, 2020). The importance of being able to accurately control hot water temperature will be explored in this paper.
