Clwyd Theatr Cymru Study 2012
Client:Flintshire County Council / Clwyd Theatr Cymru
Project Category:Planning and Feasibility
Completion Year:2012
Location:Clwyd, United Kingdom
Clwyd Theatre Cymru is home to the largest drama producing operation in Wales, exceeded only by Welsh National Opera. Much of the theatre is now of an age where some of the internal space is in increasingly urgent need of renovation and modernisation, the infrastructure needs a major refurbishment to enable delivery of excellent quality public entertainment, and further space needs to be created to develop additional rehearsal and workshop facilities.

FDA engaged in a feasibility study with the stakeholders to determine actions and priorities for several issues:
Refurbishment of and exploration of the potential to increase the capacity of the Anthony Hopkins Theatre
Refurbishment of the Emlyn Williams Theatre
The use of the former television studio as a dedicated small scale performance area
The provision of extra rehearsal spaces
The provision of adequate production wardrobe facilities
Relocation of the scenery workshop on site from its current remote workshop facility
The upgrade and improvement of all communications installations
The phasing of the work so that the facility can remain open throughout the implementation of the refurbishment works
