NDI SA has signed the building contract for the Shakespear Theatre
Today, the Gdańsk Shakespeare Theatre and NDI S.A. signed a contract to complete the construction of the Theatre building. The contracted works are priced at over PLN 43 million gross and are scheduled for 11 months. Their completion is anticipated in the early 2014, however considering the need to put the required fixtures and fittings in place the theatre will be opened in July 2014.
The site designated for the investment is almost 6 thousand square metres in area, out of which more than 1 thousand is reserved for the green. The volume of the building, including its above-ground and underground sections, adds up to more than 50 thousand cubic metres. The building will be unique in structure with its retractable roof reminiscing of the theatrical performances in the Elizabethan times when theatre stages were unroofed. Depending on the arrangement of the three stages and the audience, none of which will be fixed in space, the capacity of the theatre will range between ca 400 and 500 people.
The investment will consist in continuation of comprehensive project execution, embracing all building works i.e. indoor installations, outdoor technical infrastructure, traffic system, and landscaping, plus any necessary auxiliary construction works.
The Gdańsk Shakespear Theatre Project is co-financed from the European Regional Development Fund under the Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment 2007-2013.
