Bridgeton’s Olympia dome winched back into place
A giant five tonne wooden dome, demounted for refurbishment, has been carefully winched back into the position it has occupied for 100 years.

The former Olympia Theatre is in the throes of a £10m refurbishment project financed by Clyde Gateway to bring the landmark structure back into productive use.

This has seen Page\Park architects take the helm of an ambitious restoration and new build programme to introduce a new public library, café, performance facilities and office space for the Bridgeton Cross area.

The <a href="http://www.urbanrealm.com/news/2062/Clyde_Gateway_acquire_Bridgeton%27s_Olympia_Theatre.html">former theatre had formerly lain derelict</a> and its interiors were badly gutted by a severe fire in 2004.

a group of amateur photographers were allowed into the new bulding recently and got loads of photos from the roof. cant wait to see it open its doors in November.
