Austin-Smith:Lord takes to the stage once again with another theatre win
Hot on the heels of the Practice’s recent theatre feasibility study appointment in Bolton, the Cardiff Studio has been selected, through competitive tender, to undertake a feasibility study at Theatr Hafren in Newtown, Mid Wales.
Appointed by Neath Port Talbot College Group and Theatr Hafren, we will be undertaking a detailed feasibility study which will look at introducing a new suite of arts facilities including a high quality studio, a second dance studio and music recording and rehearsal suite. We have also been tasked with rationalising some of the other internal spaces, including the front of house, and improving building accessibility and identity.
Our team, led by Rob Firman, will be working collaboratively with Stephen Bashford from Hosta Ltd., who has been commissioned to undertake a demand appraisal and outline business case. We have worked with Stephen on a number of projects including Aberystwyth University Old College, Lower Lodge Gatehouse and Blackpool Visitor Heritage attraction. The client felt that our existing collaborative relationship and relaxed yet confident approach is a great strength in our team, and will bring definite advantages to the project.
