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.

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.

Hotel Puerta América

Bespoke Stevensons-Stone® Design

Involving nearly 20 architects, the Hotel Puerta América in Madrid is a unique project, with each of the eight floors presented in radically different styles. Stevensons were involved in more than one area across the hotel, and worked extensively on the lobby on the eighth floor.

The designer’s vision of the lobby involved radial walls emanating from the lifts, within which are placed hundreds of individual fibre optic lights - the lighting reacts to the colour of the clothing worn by the guest leaving the lift into the lobby. Stevensons-Stone® was chosen as the best material to manufacture the walls from, with its moulding precision allowing for the hundreds of pre-formed holes for the lighting to be placed accurately.
