Director, Bristow Consulting

Roundhouse Campus Project

We are acting as Project Manager, Cost Manager and Contract Administrator overseeing a number of key workstreams to enhance existing facilities and provide new facilities at the Grade II Listed Roundhouse Theatre in Camden, North London. These include:

The Campus Building

Located to the rear of the Roundhouse in Camden, this new building will house three studio spaces and a Centre for Creative and Digital Entrepreneurs. Designed specifically for 18-30 year old's, the building will be a centre for talent development–where young people will be able to grow their creative skills and business acumen to make the next step in their personal and professional journey. The ground floor of the building, set approximately 3m above the street below, will include state-of-the-art digital facilities for rehearsal, recording and live broadcast and there will be a triple-height studio for large scale performing arts skills development which will especially benefit aspiring circus performers. Our role comprises full Project Management, Cost Management and Contract Administration of the JCT Standard Contract.

Auditorium Seating
We are managing a project to develop, design and install a new modular seating system for the main auditorium at the Roundhouse, to seat up to 1,300 people. Due to the unique 360 degree space at the Roundhouse, this will be flexible to accommodate a variety of arrangements. We are providing full project management for the project, including OJEU compliant procurement of the seating manufacturer.

Seating Storage
The new modular seating structure requires dedicated storage within the existing Roundhouse site. In order to accommodate this, a bespoke modular solution has been developed using adapted shipping containers. This approach has allowed a highly flexible space to be developed which can be adapted with changing requirements over time. The use of shipping containers allowed for full design development and manufacture to be undertaken offsite with an installation period of only one week. The structure will integrate seamlessly with the Roundhouse Administration building adjacent, also constructed from shipping containers.
