The theatre opened on 25th November, 1929 and is one of the smallest 'proscenium arched' West End theatres. Working on behalf of Nimax Theatres and in conjunction with mbh Architects, Triton Conservation was asked to provide a proposals and costs to revitalise the existing façade.
Once agreed the works were to be completed within a six week time frame to accommodate the closure of one show and opening of the next. During this period we were to complete the following works:
- Erect access scaffold
- Cleaning the bathstone masonry by way of intermittent nebulous sprays
- Undertake a visual inspection and submit a full and comprehensive schedule of repairs
- Overhaul and redecorate the sixty crittal windows
- Clean and redecorate the 30 cast iron plaques to the window bays
- Decoration and gilding to the 'Duchess Theatre' signage
- Removal of the scaffold
- Overhauling and French polishing of the theatre entrance doors
- Overhauling, cleaning and testing to the canopy and associated electrics
Triton managed to complete these works within the time restrictions and to the satisfaction of the client.
