Everyman Theatre shortlisted in CIBSE Building Performance Awards

We are delighted that the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool has been shortlisted in the prestigious Building Performance Awards for Project of the Year in the Leisure category.

The award, by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), recognise the best examples of performance, innovation and practice in optimising how buildings work.

Our building services team has been actively involved in the development programme for the Everyman and responsible for the full detailed design of all Building Services Engineering. Special features of the services design included a hybrid, naturally ventilated auditorium, as well as distinctive roof mounted stack chimneys, which contributed to the overall impression of the Theatre. The design delivers the first naturally ventilated auditorium in the country, maintaining “total acoustic isolation”. Waterman also provided the commissioning management role to help achieve the Excellent BREEAM rating that the building received at design stage.

The multi-award winner Everyman Theatre won the RIBA Stirling Prize in 2014 for best new building of the year.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony held at Grosvenor House, Park Lane in London on Wednesday 24 February.
