Neville Holt Opera Theatre, Market Harborough
Main Contractor

Nevill Holt Opera Limited

Northfield Construction Ltd under took the enabling works package on this project to construct a new opera theatre within the grounds and buildings of an existing grade II listed dwelling.

The main scope of works included forming the orchestra pit, a basement constructed with in situ reinforced concrete walls and slabs.
As the project was in a sensitive location, within a small village and also within a listed building logistics management was key to the success of the project. It was also crucial for Northfield Construction Ltd to protect the existing building to ensure no damage was inflicted. Northfield Construction Ltd did this by carrying out a pre-start survey of the existing building and then fixing monitoring points to the existing building walls which were checked each day for movement to ensure the new construction works did not cause any damage to the existing. NCL also formed good relationships with the conservation society and the society often came to visit site to ensure works were progressing as they should, which they were.
