Key Project

Project: Georgian Theatre, Richmond

Client: Trustees of the Georgian Theatre Royal

Project Details:

The refurbishment of the Existing Grade 1 Listed Georgian Theatre at Richmond for the Trustees of the Georgian Theatre.  The theatre was originally built in 1788 as is regarded as the most important surviving provincial theatre in the development of the English Playhouse and is one of only 340 built in the Georgian period to have survived largely unaltered.

The overall project involved the demolition of the existing extension to the Theatre and the construction of a new 3 storey extension providing bar, toilet facilities, actors changing facilities and access for the disabled.

Within the existing Theatre, the works comprised a full upgrade of internal finishes including new staging, lighting, seating and specialist artwork.

The project won the National Building Conservation Award at the RICS Awards and has been short listed for regional accolades from the RISC and the RIBA

Duration: 24 Weeks

Value: £800,000
