Stratford theatre revamp advertised

The Royal Shakespeare Company has advertised for a construction manager to oversee the £53 million redevelopment of its Royal Shakespeare Theatre on Stratford-upon-Avon.
The scheme - advertised in today's Official Journal - involves the 'radical remodelling' of the Grade II listed theatre, which was first opened in 1932.

Construction work on the scheme to create a new 1,000 seat theatre is due to begin in the autumn of 2007, with the RSC moving to the nearby Courtyard Theatre, designed by Ian Ritchie Architects.

The new building will retain the Art Deco features of the original while giving a larger performance space and modernising spectator facilities.

Contractors have until August 17 to apply.
