Royal Opera House (214 million)

In 1998/9 the operahouse was extensively refurbished and extended. As a junior engineer I was given the task of designing the auditoria, lighting rigs, gantries and walkways in the Studio Theatre contained in part of the basement. The added complexity of this was three "Box in a Box" structures each accoustically separate from the next and bridged by many elements for stabilty. This was my first real challenging project and one I am still very proud of especially working on such a prestegious project.
