Client Wilmott Dixon

Challenge 

The last phase of a circa. £33m investment in Warwick Arts Centre will see Willmott Dixon create the region’s leading cultural centre when complete in early 2021 that will be a key venue in Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture 2021. 
 
Creating a leading cultural centre in Warwick involves a complete upgrade to the original arts building as well as adding a new-build that houses three HD digital auditoria, a large ground floor gallery to exhibit contemporary art, sculpture and photography, plus a spacious new-look foyer.

Solution 

One of the most complex elements of the arts centre involved the erection of its steel frame, which saw 2,700 pieces of frame put in place over a 12-14 week period to form the gallery and three cinemas. Working with product partners Sherwin Williams, GRJ were able to provide a solution to protect this complex steel structure to meet the required level of fire integrity. Internal compartmentation was completed using Firetherm products.
