Our team in the Midlands is continuing its role making the University of Warwick’s estate one of the best in the country as it begins its fourth scheme, the new Warwick Arts Centre. The last phase of a circa. £33m investment in Warwick Arts Centre, will see our team create the region’s leading cultural centre when complete in early 2021 and will be a key venue in Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture 2021.
Designed by Ellis Williams Architects with Bond Bryan as delivery architect and project managed by Turner & Townsend, the Warwick Arts Centre involves a complete upgrade to the original building as well as adding a new-build that houses three HD digital auditoria, a large ground floor gallery to exhibit contemporary art, sculpture and photography, plus a spacious new-look foyer.
One of the most complex elements of the arts centre involves the erection of its steel frame, which will see 2,700 pieces of frame put in place over a 12-14 week period to form the gallery and three cinemas.
Vistors will be able to see both the erected steel frame and the cladding of the build as both will be well under way. The ground floor slabs will be installed meaning visitors can walk into the structure. The roofs will also be installed, providing a clear idea of the spaces.
