Description – Previously abandoned for over three decades, the site was the former Assize Court Building. The building was placed on Historic England’s Buildings at Risk register. This created a particular need to be sensitive to the building structure to conserve as much as possible.
Our task was to complete essential conversation to the Grade II listed neoclassical building. The project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
We were also involved in the conversion of the site into a museum. By developing the site into a museum, it meant moving the site over to public access. This included creating new spaces for events, exhibitions, and immersive experiences.
We completed repairs, conservation, and extension in multiple phases. These were specific and long timescales. Facing challenging budget constraints, we came up with resourceful solutions to work with the budget for the 15,000 sq. ft. project.
