Arts Centre, Blandford Forum, Dorset.
Initial concept by Jon Ivay for Freedom Picture Company. We identified a number of site options in and around the town centre of Blandford Forum. We negotiated the land deal and leasehold for the preferred site. We worked alongside the architects to come up with an innovative design using sustainable materials. We saw the project through both outline and detailed planning approval working with both District and Town Councils. We have played a major role in raising finances for the venue and we will organise and project manage the construction process through to the public opening. We will also implement the management team and be responsible for at least the first two years of operation.
