The integration of two historically and architecturally important theatres on the banks on the river Avon represented a challenge to the entire construction team. Bennett Associates bold use of contemporary glass and aluminium structures together with other new features that pay more than a passing nod to renaissance Italian architecture results in a modern, yet sensitively designed, theatre complex that rivals any in the world. Demanding aesthetic and acoustic requirements required the very latest technology from the extensive Schuco range of products including FW 60+ SG semi-unitised curtain wall, AWS and ADS window and door systems, Schuco Jansen fire rated steel windows, auto actuated glass louvre systems, and extensive bolted glass assemblies incorporating minimally framed stainless steel automatic doors. 

Part new build, part refurbishment, and involving the retention and incorporation of listed buildings, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre at Stratford upon Avon showcases British construction skills at their best.
