The Abbey Theatre is the National Theatre of Ireland. Founded in 1904, the theatre plays a highly significant role in the cultural and social life of Dublin and Ireland.
We worked with The Abbey Theatre to develop the detailed technical business case for the rebuild of the outdated existing building. The business case included rigorous market appraisal, financial modelling, options appraisal and economic forecasting.
The new cultural destination created will maximise the potential of Irish theatre artists and audiences, as well as play a leading role in growing Dublin’s economy, and in growing Ireland’s international reputation for culture.
Our business case was reviewed by the National Government, which has now agreed to dedicate €80 million to the project.
