Between 2016 and 2017, the Victoria Palace Theatre underwent a £50m refurbishment. In which 8Build Ltd were appointed as the Main Contractor for the refurbishment works. 8Build then enlisted BC Bespoke Joinery to manufacture and install the joinery package.
BC Bespoke Joinery carried out, the manufacture / repairs, fire rating and installation of nearly 300 internal and external doors at the theatre. Nearly every door set had different specified requirements, from material, finish, fire rating, glass painting and ironmongery, each door was unique. Some of the old doors we were required to replicate had detailed painted glass panels in. We were able to replicate so they looked exactly the same as the originals.
Also included within the joinery package were windows. We were required to carry out renovation works to most windows, and were also required to manufacture approximately 30 new windows.
All WC’s / Bathrooms were refurbished, we manufactured and installed the wall panelling, cubicle posts, partition walls, cubicle doors, skirting and mouldings for all bathrooms.
Other works carried out at this project include skirting throughout, door heads, wall panelling, shelving and boxing in of services where required by the Client.
