Props essential to theatre rebuild

Northern Bear’s specialist structural propping teams are currently very busy on projects across the North East, including the complete refurbishment of the historic Alnwick Playhouse.

Neil Jukes, Managing Director of Northern Bear Building Services, said: “The Playhouse project is going to plan. At the moment we have to do quite a lot of demolition and removal before we can start rebuilding. That’s where the structural propping is so vital in retaining facades and other parts of the historic building, safely and efficiently.”

Northern Bear offers a full package of design, supply and installation of temporary propping together with the installation of steelwork, lintels and making good. The teams are used to retaining complex historical buildings and ensuring safe temporary works plans are put in place to alter existing buildings in redevelopment schemes.
