Theatre Restoration Stevensons of Norwich

IN SITU PLASTER REPAIRS

Plaster Preservation

Wherever possible, in situ repairs will take place on the plaster mouldings 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 moulding is secured firmly to primary and secondary fixing points.

Theatre Royal Newcastle Restoration

Where plasterwork is damaged beyond repair, the Stevensons plasterers will work to preserve the original design by taking a rubber imprint of the plasterwork, a process known as ‘squeezing’. Through our team of designers, or by using the ‘squeezed’ moulds, we can recreate detailed plaster designs, restoring the theatre to its original glory.

Westminster City Council

Bespoke Stevensons-Stone® Mould

As part of their premises refurbishment, Westminster City Council commissioned Stevensons of Norwich to produce new castings of their Heraldic Lion logo, to be displayed outside the entrance to the building.

Using the existing stone lions, which had become damaged due to age and weathering, our craftsmen restored them to a state where a mould could be taken, into which Stevensons-Stone® was poured and cast into the shape of the original pair. Once cast, the new faux stone logo was finished by Angel Interiors, who applied the painted detailing, before being installed outside the building entrance by our team for the official re-opening.

Royal Exchange Theatre

Plaster Ceiling Dome Restoration

As a result of a bomb blast nearby, the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester suffered significant structural damage, causing major plasterwork damage throughout the building. Stevensons were appointed to undertake the plasterwork repairs, including the reinstatement of the large central dome.

Where possible, surface level damage was repaired in situ, such as for decorative wall panels and the two smaller domed ceilings. However, due to the proximity of the blast, certain sections required complete replacement, including the large central dome. Reconstructed in our Norwich factory, the impressive plaster dome framework was delivered to the site in 700 sections, which were assembled and installed by Stevensons within the restored theatre.

Our extensive work on the Theatre was recognised with an award, about which the Judges commented that Stevensons of Norwich Ltd had a clear understanding of the best approach to every condition to restore what must have appeared total chaos. The quality of the work appeared faultless.
