Birmingham Repertory Theatre, is a producing theatre based in the city centre.

The Cablenet tension wire grid at this theatre is one long wire grid – 16.2 x 21.1 m – with an access hatch opening to allow the lifting of equipment. A central beam was installed to divide the grid and allow tension to be maintained in both sections of the grid.

The presence of a pit on the floor of the auditorium meant that a temporary access floor had to be provided to allow the safe installation of the grid.

The theatre consultants were Charcoal Blue and Carillion the main contractor.
