The project was secured through Competitive Tender and was a follow on Phase for us in the Theatres Refurbishment Programme. It had taken several years for The Ayr Gaiety Partnership to raise £2.5M in funds to facilitate the works. It was imperative that we had to work with the Client and The Design Team to make the project work through a very demanding 30 week programme with shows and performances booked to take place the week following the handover. In that time, four floors and a full auditorium were fully refurbished including a new stage to make the once tired and dilapidated building a state of the art facility. This added another excellent leisure refurbishment to Worksmart’s portfolio.
This iconic theatre and listed building in the community of Ayrshire was restored to its former glory. In this time, Worksmart worked seamlessly with the Client, Austin Smith Lord, and the Full Design Team to produce an outstanding result that will stand the test of time for years to come.
