The Lyceum Theatre originally opened in 1889 to accommodate 1,250 people. It suffered a serious fire in 1910 and was substantially rebuilt In 1994 major improvements were made by taking in an adjoining site to the left. This provided extensive new facilities, including a large foyer, restaurant, kitchens and bars.
In 2008 during a much needed refurbishment the opportunity was taken to upgrade the building service throughout the theatre; in particular the comfort cooling as the building was suffering from overheating. The scheme utilised air source heat pumps to deliver the cooling required. We also introduced a fresh air supply and associated controls which allowed the client to introduce free cooling into the space when required saving energy and carbon.
