We are proud to announce that PMP are acting as quantity surveyor on The Birmingham Repertory Theatre’s ‘Open House’ project to support the REP’s long-term future. 

‘Open House’ will rejuvenate the building’s façade and internal areas to forge a new and more welcoming gateway between the REP and Centenary Square.

Upgrades to internal public areas, including improvements to the theatre’s front-of-house facilities, café, restaurant, terrace and box office, are designed to create an enhanced welcome experience, and improved visitor offer., whilst enabling The REP to generate vital additional revenue

The works aim to finish in the first quarter of 2022, in time for the city’s cultural programmes running in parallel with the Commonwealth Games.

PMP are proud to be acting as Quantity Surveyors on this important scheme for The REP. The ‘Open House’ redevelopment involves the wholesale refurbishment of their front of house offering and providing a new dedicated entrance for the theatre and is an important and exciting development which will help them recover after a challenging 18 months. PMP have worked closely with the Client and the design team throughout the design and procurement stages to help bring this project to fruition and we are looking forward to seeing the end result and working with the Contractor, Intex Projects.
