Theatre consultancy Charcoalblue has opened a studio in Glasgow as it expands its work in Scotland.

The company has also announced new additions to its leadership team, with Steve Roberts and Rich Garfield being promoted to run operations in Bristol and London respectively.

Steve Green has also joined Charcoalblue to head up its Scottish operation that opened this month. The creation of the Glasgow studio comes as the company increases the amount of work it does in Scotland. Recent projects have included the new headquarters of the National Theatre of Scotland, Rockvilla, and it is also working on Perth Theatre, Dundee High School and the Scottish Power building in Glasgow.

Andy Hayles, managing partner, said of the expansion: “Scotland’s theatre industry is thriving. It has established itself as one of the world’s most innovative, ambitious and supportive climates for the performing arts through intelligent investment and local support.

“We are proud to open out latest studio in Glasgow and excited to contribute further to the already enviable theatrical community here in Scotland.”

The principal of Charcoalblue’s New York studio, John Owens, also joins the company’s board of partners.
