What they say about us

“David Beidas and New Stages were a huge asset to the Lyric Hammersmith’s £20m redevelopment project. David’s knowledge and experience of complex cultural capital projects is unrivalled and he made a major contribution to the success of the project from the early stages until completion. Working as the bridge between the internal staff team and the external project team, he was instrumental in helping the Lyric as the client to understand the project process and ensure we got the best from our contractor and project team. He is hugely knowledgeable about the capital project process, calm, considerate and 100% committed to doing a great job. I would highly recommend his services to colleagues in the cultural sector who are embarking on projects of all sizes.”

Jessica Hepburn, former Executive Director, Lyric Hammersmith

“David’s knowledge of managing capital projects was invaluable as we undertook the theatre’s first ever major refurbishment project. His attention to detail, understanding of the theatre environment, and willingness to take a firm stance when needed were all attributes that were a real contribution to our project’s success.  No capital project should be undertaken without him!”

Deborah Rees, Director, Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury

“This project must be regarded as a success in its outcome.  Indeed, its realisation in the face of budgetary and time constraints is impressive.  The original vision has largely been achieved in terms of the accommodation provided, and in its quality and accessibility.””

““David’s co-ordination of our Capital Project has enabled the Senior Management Team to embrace the complexity of the process with confidence, knowing that the work is being led by one individual with a single focus on the project. David has dealt with all issues with a professional rigour and always within deadlines. His quiet confidence, calming influence, sound judgement and thoughtfulness, along with his evident enjoyment of the work, has had a highly positive impact on the whole team.””

Judith Kilvington, Executive Director, Graeae

“”He has an impressive eye for detail and is a meticulous planner who has helped keep the project within budget and to deadline at every step of the journey.  He has worked tirelessly with my, my Board and the senior project stakeholders, helping us to make the right decisions at the right time at critical stages of the journey.””
