MEASUREMENT & ASSESSMENT
REMEDIAL WORKS DESIGN
London’s O2 Arena has been recognised as the world's most popular music venue (by ticket sales) after opening in 2007.
The arena has been designed specifically to provide a premium experience for large amplified shows.
Vanguardia developed the full acoustic design from the initial environmental and planning studies, through the architectural design and the systems design for Sound, AV and Broadcast in the arena. The arena was designed with the touring production, promoters and paying patrons always in mind as the end users and ultimate judges of the arena's success.
The opening show by Bon Jovi was a huge success; the band, production team and the audience were all accommodated within the generous facilities. The arena has hosted numerous musical stars and world sporting events pushing the expectations for arena experiences into the 21st century.
The installed acoustic finishes result in an even balanced sound throughout the space. An installed production sound system is used to re-enforce the stage sound in the upper tiers, this allows everyone to enjoy high sound quality from the stage barrier to the back row.
