The task: Our job here was to carry out a survey of the Grade II* listed Royal Shakespeare Theatre, which was rebuilt in 1932 after the original 1879 building was destroyed by fire. The complication in the plot here, though, was that this survey was to be undertaken before and during the RSC’s major reconfiguration to provide a new 1000-seat thrust-stage auditorium.
The result: All’s well that ends well. The client was able to benefit from our experienced Building Recording specialists, who identified features in the structure which were of particular interest and allowed for efficient, programmed recording. They also benefited from the use of our experienced architectural photographer, who put together a high quality visual record for posterity.
