The Other Place Theatre

This project was the RIBA National Award Winner in 2007. Desertoak were contracted by AMEC (now Morgan Sindall), to undertake the ceilings, partitions, flooring, groundworks and decorations packages to “The Other Place” Theatre.

This Theatre was transformed into the Foyer, Cloakrooms, Bar Areas, Shop, Booking Office and Call Centre, Dressing Rooms and Band rehearsal space, to serve the Temporary Courtyard Theatre.

The Courtyard Theatre

Whilst working on site, we were approached by the Dutch company ZNS Van Dam, who were the Main Contractor, responsible for building the temporary 1,050 seat Auditorium, which forms the “Courtyard Theatre”.

Desertoak undertook the new Link Bridges between the two buildings, the fire doors throughout, as well as the specialist 40mm thick plywood flooring, which completely covers all of the four floors and tiered seating upstands.

We also constructed the new 14m high walls, which enclose the Fire Escape Stairs and the divide wall at the rear of the Stage. These were constructed with Fireline plasterboard and covered with tongue and groove ply sheeting.

We also assisted with the working design of the internal construction and   and were also involved in the practical side of the ventilation below the floor, supplying air to the complete Ground Floor area. In order to discuss with the designers, we visited ZNS Van Dam’s Offices in The Netherlands.
