Work has begun on a new scene dock – an access and storage facility for the Ambassador Theatre Group. Constructed at the historic Edinburgh Playhouse, a Category A listed building within the New Town Conservation Area and the Edinburgh World Heritage Site, this is a busy site in the heart of the city, surrounded by neighbouring pubs, restaurants and hotels. The front elevation faces Leith Walk while the rear elevation faces Calton Hill.
Following an extensive selection process, the client awarded these works to Colorado Construction based on our significant experience in completing similar projects on listed buildings and in a tight timescale and our pre-contract engagement, assisting the Client and Design Team find solutions for challenging technical issues.
The stage is approximately 3 storeys above the adjacent lane along Marshalls Court, with the new Scene Dock being built on a platform structure at this level – access to the site is therefore very restricted but the Colorado Team love a challenge, and can bring experience gained when delivering projects in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket and High Street!
