UCL: Senate House

Project Description

The University of London’s Senate House, (as featured in the Batman film franchise) were referred to EHP through a previous client, to design and construct a removable, drop-well theatre staging solution, for semi-permanent use in their Beveridge Hall meeting room.



University of London



To design and manufacture a staging solution to fill the drop-well theatre, whilst allowing the existing heating units to function as normal. Furthermore, the staging should be erected and dismantled in only four hours.



Due to the physical shape of the hall, staging decks needed to be manufactured from scratch to precise measurements. Over 90 decks were made, and of these, 34 were bespoke. All were finished with a contract carpet and air grills to allow for the flow of hot air from the existing heating units.

From concept to completion, this project took just three short weeks. The EHP team then undertook a one-day onsite training session with the Senate House facilities team, to train and advise on erecting and dismantling the staging in a safe and efficient manner. Five years later, and the staging is still being used over 40 times every year.


“We have been working with Event Hire Professionals since 2011 and have always found them to be prompt, friendly and reliable suppliers.  They facilitated the design and manufacture of the drop well staging in our Beveridge Hall.  Their customer service consistently exceed our expectations”
