experts on stage

The State Theatre in Darmstadt provides the capacity for approximately 600 performances, musical theatre, concerts, dance theatre and acting, in one season (240,000 visitors). It has two theatrical stages, i. e. ’Großes Haus’ (big opera house with 956 seats) and ’Kleines Haus’ (little playhouse with 482 seats), and a rehearsal stage, also used as workshop stage.

Thirty years of intensive usage made the reinstatement necessary, mainly including fire protection measures, the technical building equipment, stage technology and the new construction of an alternative playhouse. The theatre buisiness had to be secured without any time limitations.

In 2000, DIEDERICHS was commissioned with the supervision and control of the whole project. The crucial aspect that made the building authorities in Darmstadt decide in favour of DIEDERICHS was that DIEDERICHS had already integrated the required expert team, since technical examination of planning for special technical equipment was to become an essential part of the performance specification.

Considering the fact that the available resources cover only 75% of the required refurbishment, the processes were optimised with regard to user demands at an early stage, in order to keep to budget. The overall co-ordination during the realisation phase is highly demanding, with 69.0 m € to be spent for construction works, whilst maintaining the whole operation.
