New On-Line Publication – Client guide for Capital Arts projects

The practice was appointed by CABE and the Arts Council of England to author and manage the delivery of the new Guidance for Capital Arts projects which is to go live in July 2008.
‘An unprecedented number of building projects for the Arts have been realised in the last decade, both as refurbishments and extensions to existing buildings, and entirely new buildings. There is a growing community of current and former clients for Arts Capital Projects. Frequently this is a single one-off, never to be repeated experience. Some Arts Capital Project clients have asked “why do we seem to be reinventing the wheel for every project?”. This report is designed to capture and communicate the key points from this collective, but largely unpublished experience, and set them into the customary sequence of events in a building project.’
The guide was researched and written by Short and Associates’ team, Alan Short with Alistair Fair, Sebastian Macmillan (Sustainability), Peter Barrett (Briefing), Adrian Cave (Accessibility) and Patricia Sterry (Consultation).
