About This Project
An example of a large scale restoration is the Stevensons involvement in the refurbishment of the Coliseum Theatre – one of the largest theatres in London – of which the main auditorium dome in the photograph below is a detail.
- Stevensons undertook a survey of the auditorium and front of house plasterwork on the basis of which a priced schedule was produced.
- The restoration and repair schedule involved, as appropriate, works to the main auditorium ceiling and dome, balcony fronts and soffits and all front of house areas.
- In situ repairs were undertaken wherever feasible with replacement and renewal only where unavoidable.
Stevensons were selected by the Management Contractor because of their theatre experience in particular and general restoration expertise with historic plasterwork. The scale of the project demanded management and coordination skills and a large team of craftsmen.
The Stevensons package was completed on schedule and to budget to the satisfaction of the Client team.
