Our engineers install performance audio systems to ensure every seat in the house has a great experience. We design systems for speech reinforcement through to full surround systems for immersive plays and musicals.
We integrate audio throughout your auditorium, front of house and back of house spaces to provide a unified audio and communications platform for performance, announcement and show relay.
Stage and Scenic Hardware
We assess your use cases, building fabric and staffing levels to design safe and robust stage and scenic rigging systems which are adaptable to suit a range of scenarios. Further, we consider trends in technology to advise on the best long term solution.
Safety is designed in from the foundation of the system. Considerations such as lone working, access requirements, working at height and ongoing maintenance needs are considered and advised throughout the process.
Comprehensive Venue Solutions
Schools & Colleges
We integrate high performance stage lighting, audio and visual systems with robust stage engineering to create a truly multi-purpose space. When doing this, we balance flexibility with ease of use to ensure the space is suitable for all users. Our team ensure designers and technicians have the flexibility to realise any artistic concept whilst still giving reliable operation for non-technical users who just want to show a presentation or deliver a lesson.
We believe fully in the saying “they show must go on”. By adopting this approach, we support you to deliver your productions safely from your initial concept through to opening night and beyond with our range of support packages.
Our experienced design team work with you delivering expert project management, consultation, CAD design, 3D visualisation, design specification and tender preparation. Nub provide a single point of contact for your full suite of entertainment engineering needs including specialist periodic inspection, production equipment rental and AV equipment sales.
Education Performance Systems
Our engineers work with you to develop a versatile but cost effective and reliable stage lighting and performance support system into your school drama studio, hall or theatre. We work with all involved departments to design an all-encompassing specification and solution which keeps all parties happy.
We understand the requirement for a space to be usable for a drama lesson, dance rehearsal and assembly in rapid succession. Further, it is important to be able to do this without having to manually re-configure the layout or setup. It is especially important that an end user is able to transform a space safely without needing support calls to technical staff to connect a laptop or turn on the lighting. To achieve this, we design systems which are usable and re-configurable at the touch of a button locally or remotely allowing for reliable self-operation and worry-free deployment of advanced technologies.
Theatre Infrastructure Upgrades
No matter the scale of your upgrade project, whether upgrading your backstage calls or installing a compete new dimming system, we work with you to develop a solution which makes the most of your existing systems and lets you fully utilise your space effectively for years to come.
Our experience in working on event technical production means we understand the tight timeframes and budgets of every project. By considering these needs, we deliver a plan which respects the space and users. We carry out works during dark periods and develop an upgrade programme to ensure the installation process runs smoothly, efficiently and on-budget.
Venue Design and Consultancy
Our team are truly cross discipline, we aren’t just engineers or installers. The Nub team includes skilled event designers who understand just how frustrating it can be to not have the facilities or systems you need available within a venue. We work with Architects, Designers, Builders, Installers and Users to develop systems and solutions which meet everyone’s requirements whilst also respecting the limitations of space and budget.
We are constantly investigating and integrating new technologies into our designs. To achieve this, we work with a range of leading manufacturers to understand emerging trends and methods. The result is that we can ensure every system we design is as capable, modern and powerful as possible. We are dedicated to the sustainable development of performance spaces. Consideration of high efficiency technologies such as LED lighting and modern digital amplification takes front and centre in our design process.
