Bristol Old Vic, UK


Plann were engaged as the Project Director by Tom Morris and Emma Stenning of Bristol Old Vic in 2012.

The project involved the creation of a new foyer/cafe/bar, the redevelopment of an adjacent building to provide a range of corporate, conferencing and event facilities, and the construction of a new studio theatre. As well as running the project as Project Director, Plann have also provided specialist technical oversight of the theatre technical installation, and managed the client direct contracts including catering installations, signage and FF&E.

"Plann has helped steer this project through the construction industry minefield from the first idea through to completion with complete confidence, calmness and professionalism as well as a brilliant understanding of the challenges facing a working theatre going through a project such as this." - EMMA STENNING
