Theatre Survey & Restoration
Occupying its current site since 1837, the majestic Theatre Royal in Newcastle underwent extensive renovations in 2011 across the entire building, with Stevensons playing a major role in the restoration of the plasterwork in the main theatre.
Constructed from fibrous plaster, the balcony fronts, proscenium arch and ceiling required a thorough integrity survey, which identified areas which needed strengthening, and in some cases, in situ repairs to the plaster surface took place. To the rear of the stalls, Stevensons replaced the existing ceiling with a new fibrous plaster design, which was cast in Norwich and transported to Newcastle in sections, where each section was joined seamlessly to a supporting grid.
