Project Story

Willmott Dixon Interiors are proud to be working alongside City of Wolverhampton Council to refurbish Wolverhampton’s Civic Halls. The £19.1 million project will see the iconic Grade II-listed building, affectionately known as Wolves Civic, transformed into a top class venue.

The works consist of new back of house areas, concert venue, offices, bars and new tiered seating. Original features to be retained and restored to their 1930’s condition.

Procured through the Major Works England and Northern Ireland, a part of the Scape National Construction framework, the team will make the major changes to the Civic Hall and Wulfrun Hall and keep the venue on track to reopen in 2021.

The scope at Civic Hall will see essential structural, engineering and electrical works take place and visitors are set to benefit from the introduction of a second balcony for the Civic Hall and a balcony in the Wulfrun Hall to provide additional seating.
Key Challenges
  • Working within covid-19 government guidelines
  • Removal of roof to allow structural steel to go in for second floor
  • Ensure new roof is water tight
  • Installing the glazing to the gallery bars
  • Installation of the crash decks to both halls and lifts at varying levels to ensure all areas can be fed with materials and equipment
