European Doorsets are delighted to have recently secured the internal doorset package to the New Theatre Royal redevelopment in Portsmouth.

The redevelopment of the existing Grade II listed building sees construction of a brand new 4-storey fly tower at the back of the theatre which will
feature a double-height studio theatre and a television studio with its own control rooms. The existing building will also be extended to provide back-of-house facilities including teaching space, music rooms and office space.

The redevelopment will enable the theatre to create its own productions in-house and will be utilised by film & drama students at the University of Portsmouth in which it is a joint venture between the University and the Theatre itself.

Over 100nr doorsets are to be supplied in total which will be laminate faced and supplied with primed frames and integral architraves ready for painting on site. All doorsets will be manufactured to bespoke sizes with a number acoustic rated to 40dB. Stand-alone timber screens along with glass will also be supplied as a complete package.

The redevelopment is due for completion Autumn 2014.
