Prince Charles opens new bars at HMS Drake, PlymouthSplah Bar, HMS Drake Plymouth

To celebrate the launch of HMS Devonport's new 'Up and Under Bar' and 'Splash Juice Bar' the Prince of Wales was there to officially open the exciting new projects completed by Interserve Plc and Batchelor Electrical as part of Project Armada, a 500 million refurbishment programme at the Plymouth site.

Both bars were designed to a high specification as part of Project Armada a 500 million programme to modernise the naval base facilities and accommodation.

The 'Up and Under Bar', adjacent 'Pier Head Jump Bar' and the Coffee Lounge were the first in the programme to be refurbished by Batchelor Electrical and Interserve Plc.

The project consisted of iGuzzini lighting, PIRs to control lighting to the coffee lounge, special effect wall lighting and programmable dimming racks to set optimum lighting scenes within the bar areas at different times of the day and evening. In addition, Batchelor Electrical employed audio-visual specialists MVS to assist with the installation and commissioning of 6 LCD screens, fixed to a circular tri-light enabling multi source video to be shown at the same time or on independent screens. The Bose audio system was linked to the fire alarm system so that in the event of a fire the sound would mute automatically.

The submarine themed non-alcoholic 'Splash Bar' utilises exposed tray work across the ceiling with cut-outs for the recessed low voltage down-lighters and compact fluorescents which adds to the nautical atmospheric feel of the bar. In addition, the bar has over 6 LCD screens which can connect to the audio-visual system or the ability to link all together for multi-player gaming at a later stage.

The focal point of the bar, however, is the custom built periscope and seat which can be operated by the junior sailors to monitor the activities in the main 'Up and Under Bar' via a joystick controlled high definition dome style CCTV camera.

The Splash Bar has recently been put forward for the Shopfitting and Display Industry Awards 2008 sponsored by the National Association of Shopfitters.
