Plasterwork Restoration Stevensons of Norwich

IN SITU PLASTER CEILING REPAIRS

CEILING PRESERVATION SPECIALISTS

Wherever possible, in situ repairs will take place on the ceiling using traditional methods to match the existing design. This includes the re-securing of loose plaster, physical repairs to cracked or damaged surfaces, and ensuring that the ceiling is secured firmly to primary and secondary fixing points.

Theatre Royal Drury Lane Plasterwork Restoration

Where in situ repairs cannot be completed, Stevensons can re-create existing plasterwork and restore the ceiling to its original design. Using a process known as ‘squeezing’, an imprint of a section is taken to create a mould, allowing new sections to be cast and installed alongside the existing plasterwork.

Theatre Royal, Newcastle

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.

Rocket Theatre

Barrel-Vaulted Ceiling Survey & Repair

Built in the early 20th Century and regularly used for lectures and events by the London Metropolitan University, the Rocket Theatre contains an impressive barrel-vaulted fibrous plaster ceiling. After overall 100 years in service, concerns were raised about the integrity of the ceiling, and Stevensons were invited to complete a ceiling survey.

Our thorough on-site survey found a number of defects, including sections which needed repair, and areas where additional fixings and reinforcements were required. Stevensons were invited to complete these repairs, casting new plaster sections where required, and reinforcing the existing ceiling panels. Upon completion of the restoration, a structural surveyor granted the ceiling an ABTT certificate, declaring it safe for public use.
