The Globe Theatre, Stockton-on-Tees

Back in 2019, the iconic Art Deco Globe Theatre in Stockton-on-Tees required a scheme of renovation with construction company Willmott Dixon looking to Ancorite to execute the refurbishment of its existing terrazzo flooring.


Reconstructed in the 1930’s, extensive repairs were necessary to ensure the Grade II Listed building was bought back to exemplary condition. Reparation work was required on the staircase in particular, with additional work needed on the foyer and toilets. The project scope encompassed the reparation of the existing terrazzo flooring, a replacement staircase and a complete clean and polish.


In the first instance, Ancorite undertook a trial repair with a clean and polish of the existing terrazzo to ascertain the extent of work needed to bring the flooring back to its original condition. The existing green and cream terrazzo was matched up, and a rigorous trial and error process was carried out and subsequently completed to the satisfaction of the Conservation Consultant.


Following on from this, the existing stairs have since been repaired and lined with two-coloured Mondeco terrazzo stair treads and risers; the entrance hall terrazzo has been repaired and the complete area has been cleaned, re-ground and polished.


This Grade II listed property was commissioned by the Local Council and Civic Society in 1935 for the use of the Stockton-on-Tees community.
