Opening shot of two Mathews office furniture lorries parked at a loading bay; an alarm sounds. Inside one of the lorries are stacks of new blue chairs. There are then various shots of inside the theatre showing dressing/make up rooms; bathrooms and plant room. It then cuts to construction work at the front of the building and workmen working both inside and outside. Next scenes are of the kitchen, workmen in the auditorium, the lorries being unloaded and other behind the scenes areas. It then cuts to an outside scene of a lorry and workmen working on foundations (?) and the front entrance, both outside and inside.
00:17:15 there is a tour of the work done so far by men and women in suits, high visibility jackets and hardhats. They pose for photographs. It then shows more men working.
There is a break in the film from 00:21:57-22:05 when it cuts to show the lifting of the site offices onto trucks by cranes and then being driven away. This is interspersed with scenes of the building site and buildings in the area (Hogshead and TGI Friday’s).
