Project gets expert help


Really happy to announce that Colliers International, Buttress conservation architects and Planit-IE landscape architects have been appointed to work along side our own Project Team to develop the stage 2 application for Heritage Lottery Funding.

As well as surveying all of the buildings in the project area, we will also be developing concept designs for the public space and working on a heritage skills training programme.

Colliers International bring to the project commercial property expertise that will help us identifying deliverable and sustainable uses for some of the vacant properties in the area.

Planit-IE are the landscape architects responsible for the fantastic new Cathedral Square and we are really excited about the new ideas they have for improving the public space and highway around King George’s Hall and Gladstone’s statue.

Buttress architects impressed us with their approach to building conservation and experience of Townscape Heritage projects in other areas. They will be helping us to pull the stage 2 application together and prioritising the works we should do if the bid is successful.
