Wells Theatre Restoration and Renovation

Norfolk, Virginia (circa 1913)

McPherson Design Group worked on this project, which included contract documents for the restoration and renovation of the historic Wells Theater. Our scope included strengthening the balconies, reconstruction of the orchestra pit, support of new mechanical equipment, support of new lighting systems, and rehabilitation of deteriorated structural elements. The Wells Theatre is the proud home to the Virginia Stage Company and attracts numerous musical and theatrical performances. In addition, we recently completed a Structural Evaluation of the Wells Theatre (2013) and prepared a brief Report on the current condition of the structural brick walls and framing throughout.
