Victoria Baths

The restoration of the Grade II* listed Victoria Baths to bring one of the swimming pools and the Turkish Baths suite back into public use

The Vision

To deliver a valuable community project whilst maintaining a tight budget and remaining sympathetic to the historical character of the building.

Our Role

We provided project management services for the restoration works. A key part of our role was the management of a diverse range of stakeholders including extensive liaison with the Heritage Lottery Fund throughout. Through efficient management of the overall budget and programme, we were able to deliver the project under budget, allowing for a further phase of works to be instructed. Victoria Baths was winner of the BBC Restoration programme which enabled funding to be secured.
