Gcp In the spotlight again

Trinity Arts Centre, home of the 'Bristol Sound' has appointed gcp to prepare a feasibility study leading to a planning application that will see the centre transformed into a true multi use arts facility. gcp are co-ordinating the stakeholder consultation that is a key aspect of the project. A key aim of the project is to develop the first floor of Trinity, a Grade II* deconsecrated church, in to a community theatre and dance space.

In recognition of rising energy prices the objective is to make Trinity a benchmark for low energy community arts venues in the South West.

The work will involve a significant capital investment programme over the next 5 years. In this period Trinity will also take over ownership of the building from Bristol City Council under the recently adopted council Asset Transfer Policy.

English Heritage and The Big Lottery 'Reaching Communities' fund are the key funding agencies.
