Gloucester-based building firm Speller Metcalfe has been awarded the contract to refurbish Cheltenham’s Everyman Theatre which will be undergoing a £3 million restoration this summer.
The firm is delighted to have secured the work to completely restore the Victorian building, which will involve renovating the auditorium, front of house and existing bars and toilets.
Andy Metcalfe of Speller Metcalfe, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be awarded the Everyman contract. It will involve a great deal of specialist works, including fibrous plaster work, specialist decoration and art restoration, and specialist finishes as well as the need for technical installations covering lighting and sound works. It’s an amazing project and one we are delighted to be involved in.”
The Everyman’s Chief Executive, Geoffrey Rowe, said: “Appointing the contractor is a major step on the road to restoring the Everyman back to its former glory. I am delighted that the company which triumphed in the tendering process is one based in Gloucestershire.”
A privately owned building contractor established in 1995, Speller Metcalfe has offices in Gloucester, Malvern and London, from where they undertake construction, refurbishment and design and build work nationally, working closely with a number of councils across the country. Speller Metcalfe Ecobuild also provides extended expertise in the design and build of sustainable buildings.
