Figueras applies Mutamut technology in the new auditorium of prestigious Bridgend College in South Wales

The new auditorium is equipped with moveable seating that allows the College to maximise the variable usage of the facility. Figueras International Seating installed the Mutamut moveable seating system in the auditorium of the New Lecture Theatre at Bridgend College, a prestigious further education college in South Wales. Among other educational facilities, the new building houses a magnificent 400-seat multipurpose auditorium.

Challenges and solutions

The space was designed to accommodate a diverse range of different events, including lectures, exams, theatrical productions, and student dances. To achieve this flexibility, the College and the architectural practice James and Nicholas opted for the Mutamut option of Figueras’s movable seating system. With the Mutamut system, complete rows of seats move along rails flush to the floor to their storage area, which in this case is at the back of the auditorium. Thanks to this auditorium seating solution, there is space created where the seats originally were which has a completely flat floor which can be used for a range of activities and is therefore more cost-effective. The system also substantially reduces the amount of time and labour costs required to switch between different configurations.
