Europe's largest multi-arts and conference venue, the Barbican in London, is to get two new cinema auditoriums.
The screens, designed by specialist architects NBDA, will have enough seating for audiences of up to 156 people, plus washroom facilities, projector housings and associated cinema operations.
ISG has been chosen to carry out the construction work to convert the existing exhibition hall into the new cinema spaces, as well as conduct major alterations to the Barbican's facade to plans created by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris Architects.
Paul Cossell, managing director of ISG Fit Out, described the project as "very significant".
"Successful project delivery here is about both the prestige of the venue and also the complex logistical challenges that surround this scheme in an extremely busy, mixed-use environment," he added.
Work is expected to be completed later this year.
The Grade II listed Barbican was first opened in 1982 and comprises several theatre spaces, as well as a library, roof-top tropical conservatory and three restaurants.
