A very exciting contract win – R Durtnell & Sons Ltd have been appointed by Brighton & Hove City Council as contractors to start works on transforming the Grade I listed Brighton Dome Corn Exchange and Grade 2 listed Studio Theatre. This is the first phase of the Council’s development plans for reconnecting and revitalising the Royal Pavilion Estate.
Work starts mid February 2017 on the major refurbishment of Brighton Dome Corn Exchange and Studio Theatre alongside essential conservation work. The transformation of the Corn Exchange, formerly the Prince Regent’s Riding house, will reveal and restore stunning and previously hidden heritage features as well as providing extra increased capacity seating and an impressive new viewing gallery.
Major improvements to the Studio Theatre, once a stables and supper room, will include balcony seating, new bar facilities, a new artists’ creation space and a café opening out onto street level.
