Clugston was awarded the contract in April 2010 and following a demanding timetable delivered the new state-of-the-art concert and entertainment venue, which boasts a 1024-seater auditorium, conference and break-out facilities, as well as a café and bar, on time.
Built on the site of the original Scunthorpe Baths, the building, which partially retained the façade of the original 1930s built Baths Hall, has been designed to incorporate a number of sustainable energy-reducing features.
Clugston Construction’s managing director Steve Radcliffe said: “The original Baths Hall was part of the town’s history. As a Scunthorpe based company, we were proud to be selected to rebuild such a landmark. We believe that our completion of this prestigious project, which offers the people of Scunthorpe a venue where they can enjoy top quality live music, comedy and theatre, serves as confirmation of Clugston Construction’s growing reputation for being a company that delivers projects on time and on budget.”
The first act to perform at the modern multi-use venue was the alternative comedian Bill Bailey, who dropped in to Scunthorpe on 11th November as part of his national Dandelion Mind (Gently Modified) UK Tour.
