Sam Wanamaker Playhouse
Timescale: 42 Weeks
Virtus were selected by The Shakespeare’s Globe team to undertake the remodelling of the foyer and the construction of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. The project is off enormous historical importance being the first theatre of this kind to be built in around 400 years using traditional techniques throughout. The project also entails the closing down and total remodelling of the main foyer to accommodate the additional guests with the coming theatre.
The theatre is located on the Southbank amidst residential units, restaurants, bars, museums etc. and experiences enormous levels of tourist footfall. Throughout the project we’ve been extremely careful to minimise the impact of our activities on any stakeholders to the project.
