Theatre Plasterwork Restoration

Stevensons have been involved in dozens of theatre restoration projects

The involvement of Stevensons in all aspects of the repair, replacement and improvement of decorative and historic plasterwork in theatres has been a major activity for three decades.

The Stevensons survey and reporting service is of particular current interest in the light of concerns about public safety in older theatres with historic ceilings. As a matter of routine Stevensons inspect, report, provide budgets and where necessary carry our repairs with a view to providing safety certificates.

Theatres where Stevensons have played a significant role include the Lyceum, Savoy, Prince Edward, Coliseum, Shepherds Bush Empire, Garrick, Palace, Lyric, Apollo, Duchess and Vaudeville in London. Outside London Stevensons have contributed to the Royal & Derngate Northampton, Hippodrome Birmingham, Royal Exchange Manchester, Theatre Royal Newcastle, Palace Watford and Theatre Royal Norwich. Outside the UK Stevensons have undertaken significant works in the National Theatre Bergen Norway and the Musical Theatre in Füssen Germany.

Whether undertaking a survey, carrying out routine maintenance repairs or assisting with wholesale refurbishment Stevensons continue to be involved in Theatre related work.

Our surveying and estimating team are always interested in hearing from theatre related professionals with a view to assisting them with their projects.
