Plann were appointed as the Project Director to The Old Vic in 2018 and have been working closely with the client since then, strategically managing a series of ambitious refurbishment projects.
Plann has developed a programme of six interconnecting schemes which include access and hospitality improvements to their existing building in Waterloo, extensive external upgrades and a new extension to house additional public areas, community work and events.
The most recent project, completed in October 2019, required an 8-month demolition and rebuild of the basement and rear stalls of the auditorium to create new public toilets, a wheelchair lift and new foyer and bar areas; all without closing the theatre or losing a single show! Plann managed the installation of temporary toilet facilities on the side street and were directly involved with client logistical planning, FF&E procurement, catering installations and client budget control.
