Redevelopment of historical theatre gets go ahead

Posted by Marianne
October 2, 2013 in Office Partitioning

One of Scotland’s historical theatre buildings has been saved, after planners at the local authority agreed to an ambitious redevelopment of the site.

The Capitol Theatre in Aberdeen is to be transformed into offices, which will see its iconic exterior retained for future generations.

The redevelopment of the site will see the creation of a 10-storey office block able to accommodate up to 700 workers.

The £30 million plans will keep the original Art Deco frontage which, for many people living nearby, marks the true feeling of the Union Street area upon which the 1930s building sits.

Welcoming the planned redevelopment as ‘fantastic’ news, a spokesman for the project said the works will deliver a restoration that will breathe new life into the area, as well as the city centre as a whole.

The office redevelopment itself will see the creation of modern, open-plan offices.

As well as creating a light and airy interior through the use of office partitions, the modern reliance on tech will be handled with  suspended ceilings  suspended ceilings to carry the infrastructure.

There will likely be the addition of break out areas, proven to increase productivity in many modern office spaces in the country and further afield.

Key to receiving the approval of the council and the backing of Historic Scotland, however, was the retention of the original features of the building.

A long period of consultation between the developers and the authorities has ensured that as many of the Art Deco features as possible will be retained and saved through the project.
