A very unique project as the Air conditioning and ventilation of the Auditorium space was designed on the basis of a low velocity displacement (LVD) supply concept. Conditioned supply air (cooled or heated as required) is delivered into the space via a large number of special floor or low level mounted outlets, typically one for each seat position. The spaces under the floor or behind the seats at Auditorium and Circle levels are formed into large air tight plenums, in which supply air at low velocity and pressure travels towards each outlet.

These small perforated style outlets are designed to deliver a small quantity of air at very low noise levels and low velocity to avoid drafts.
