|Project:||Refurbishment of Auditoria and conference facilities|
|Contract Administrator:||The City of London|
|Contract Duration:||8 weeks|
|Status:||Completed December 2010|
The Barbican Centre is Europe's largest multi-arts and conference venue, presenting a diverse range of visual art, music, theatre, dance, film and creative learning events. It is also home to the London Symphony Orchestra.
The Centre comprises: the 1,949-seat Barbican Hall, 1,166-seat Barbican Theatre, the 200-seat Pit theatre, a cinema, the Barbican Art Gallery, a second gallery The Curve, 4,645m2 of foyers and public spaces, the Lakeside Terrace, a roof-top tropical conservatory, 7 conference suites, 2 trade exhibition halls, private function rooms and 3 restaurants; Barbican Foodhall, Barbican Lounge and Searcy’s.
In 2010 we were approached to undertake a refurbishment programme which would see the conference facilities, conference reception and auditoria on level 4 of the Barbican Centre refurbished in keeping with the Centre’s ethos. As part of the refurbishment vision ‘waved’ feature walls were installed within the auditoria and boardroom which provided added acoustic performance and once illuminated by the feature lighting, the areas are transformed into modern, stimulating environments.
Part of our brief was to undertake the refurbishment whilst the building was in full use without hindering the occupants. We were responsible for making our own arrangements for access for workmen and subcontractors, for the delivery and accommodation of all materials, of plant and other facilities required to carry out the works.
