The Northcott Theatre, Exeter

Client: University of Exeter
Area: 400 m²
Stage: Project
Building costs: circa £3m
Description: Alteration & Extension Detailed Design

The Northcott Theatre is a fine building that has remained largely unchanged since it was completed in the 1960s. The new development would include the construction of a new “tower” at the rear of the building providing accommodation on 5 levels comprising Offices, Hospitality Suites, Technical Studio, Lighting and Sound Control Rooms as well as the provision of 2 wings, one either side of the new “tower” at balcony level would be used for additional bar / dining areas. The extension would be complete with all services including comfort cooling to Hospitality and Control Room areas. The existing Control Rooms within the auditorium would be removed, enabling the seating capacity to be increased by 60 seats.
