Carnegie Theatre & Arts Centre is a 350 seat community theatre based in Workington.
Evertaut worked closely with the theatre manager discussing layout options, seat spacing and wheelchair access to provide an alternative solution to their exisiting layout.
Thomas Armstrong Constuction were the preferred contractor and were commissioned for the job.
Stalls – We reduced the number of existing rows at the client’s request to give bigger seat spacing, and proposed that the floor to the front of the theatre be levelled out for wheelchair access.
Circle – We proposed that the steps were made wider to accommodate the bigger seat spacing. The chairs were manufactured in a more upright position than a standard chair to aid knee room and better viewing angles. We also fitted handrails to row C to comply with building control.
Evertaut’s skilled fitters worked on site alongside Thomas Armstrong Construction and completed the installation within the agreed timescale.
