We played a vital role as a crucial link between the client, architect and the contractors to deliver a family of complex but elegant structures for the newly built theatre in St Petersburg. Completed in May 2013, it has enjoyed wide press coverage from around the world. The project became a benchmark for the design and construction of metal and glass structures in Russia.
