Flintshire hunts contractor for £33m theatre overhaul 

Theatr Clwyd in Mold, North Wales is to be redeveloped and the local council is looking for a construction firm with turnover exceeding £66m to carry out the job. 

The £33m project includes the complete strip-out and refurbishment of the existing buildings and the construction of a timber foyer extension and carpentry workshop. 

A restaurant, bar and café, as well as a meeting room, two rehearsal studios and green room, also feature within the proposals. 

In addition, work to improve the building’s sustainability credentials also features within the project. The thermal envelope of the building will be improved, and renewable energy sources including PV panels and air source heat pumps utilised to improve energy consumption. 

The project aims to “revitalise the theatre for the next generation and provide a new home for the local community and prevent the much-loved building from possible closure”, according to tender documents. 

A consultation on the scheme, designed by Harworth Tompkins, was held in autumn 2019. Lambert Smith Hampton advised on planning.

Flintshire County Council is seeking tenders before 11am on 27 May for a contractor to carry out the 20-month project.
