OD/14/17 Lightning protection at The Regent Theatre

The work was originally planned for 2013/14 and quotations obtained. However, due to the limited number of companies with the expertise and accreditation required, and other contractual commitments of the company submitting the best offer, the installation had to be reopened for this financial year. It has been decided to place an order with Churchill Specialist Contracting Ltd for the sum of £12,220.


Currently, there isn’t any lightning protection at the Regent and although in the past this scale of building didn’t warrant protection, with the changing weather patterns it is now recommended. The proposal has been discussed with The Regent and the work replanned to avoid the capital works recently carried out during the Summer closure. The proposal has also been discussed with the Procurement Manager.
