Plaza Cinema, Stockport
The award winning restoration and refurbishment of the Grade 2* Art Deco Plaza Super Cinema at Stockport.
An initial Condition Report and Feasibility Study was carried out for The National Trust and Stockport MBC. Subsequent purchase of the building and gifting to the Stockport Plaza Trust, has resulted in the development of detailed design to accurately restore the original building exterior and interior whilst providing new accommodation in the basement storey to meet the needs of 21st Century audiences. The fully restored building now provides a fully restored 1172 seat auditorium, cafe, bar, ticket office and admin and storage.
The project secured over £2.0M of HLF funding.
To date the project has received a number of awards including:
NW RICS 2011 : Winner : Building Conservation
NW RICS 2011 : Project of the Year : Building Conservation
NW RTPI/IHBC 2011 : Winner Building Conservation
