The transformation of the 19th century, Category A-listed, Theatre Royal included the remodelling and refurbishment of the existing building and construction of a foyer space.
A number of issues were existing in the auditorium, including overheating, draughts and poor ventilation. The design created a highly efficient ventilation system with heat recovery, mechanical cooling, improved controls and air distribution.
Dramatic daylighting throughout the foyer reduces the need for artificial lighting. All building services are carefully integrated into the historic fabric and complement the architecture of the original theatre. The energy efficient building services and controls provide healthy, comfortable environments for audiences and performers alike.
