e1 Club Opens at Queen Mary and Westfield College

4th May 1999

After just 3 months of renovation, with a cost of £2.2 Million, the Students Union facility at Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London was grandly re-opened recently.

As part of the renovation the existing building was structurally redesigned and extended giving a host of much larger facilities to the students attending the college. Among these is the new 'e1' nightclub, which, due to the renovation, has an increased capacity from 450 to 800 people, reported to be one of the largest Student Union venues in London. e1 also boasts a brand new lighting system featuring top of the range products supplied by AC Lighting Ltd.

Senior Technician at e1, Iain Shields, specified and installed the new lighting system at the club, with assistance from other Union members. Among the new equipment are Jands HP12 Wall mounting dimmers and a Jands Echelon console, controlling Clay Paky Golden Scan HPE's, Clay Paky Miniscan HPE's and a Clay Paky Tornado, alongside existing fixtures.

Along with e1, the building houses six brand new facilities including a café, pub, courtyard area, shop, and student activity centre. All of which were opened in grand style at a VIP ceremony, headed by Chairman of the college council, Sir Christopher France.
