The Royal Shakespeare Theatre
The Royal Shakespeare Theatre located in Stratford-Upon-Avon is highly regarded amongst the arts and theatre communities as one of the UK's most iconic buildings. The building itself consists primarily of two main theatres; The Royal Shakespeare and The Swan Theatre. Recently in 2007, work commenced on the redevelopment of the building in its entirety combining architecture both new and old. The £112.8m project was completed 2010 and was officially reopened by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip on 4th March 2011.
We were involved in the restoration of the windows that required repair works on both the theatres. This project involved the complete restoration of various types of steel windows. This included the complete removal of a glass, paint coatings to frames and the furniture was all restored and cleaned before refitting, and in several instances was re-manufactured to match the existing aesthetic. Upon completion the client remarked that "the finish to the windows far exceeded exception".
