Skill sharing

A number of people and organisations have rolled up their sleaves and are currently supporting us in developing the project.

A special thanks to:

Isabelle Smith (Atkins)
and Julie-Anne Walker (Skelly &Couch), John Gunstone (Max Fordham) for helping us resolve the M+E requirements.

A&E Elkins Ltd and Rodney Miller for providing us with much needed temporary WCs and their practical input in getting the project built.

James Green, Louise Colgan and Maya Alvarado for running the temporary workshop at the Livesey Exchange. They are called the Power Project.

Alexander Christie for his photography of the spaces.

Imwen Eke and Heidi Rustgaard for volunteering their time as directors of the Livesey Exchange.

Structure Workshop are providing structural engineering input.

We are always looking for volunteers to help develop the project.

Are you willing to help with events & bringing the space to life. We will run a temporary programme of activities and open days until building work commences.

Do you have construction related skills that could support the design and delivery of the project? We are looking for input from a Quantity Surveyor, Structural Engineer, Lighting designer, VAT advisor.

Do you have experience of fund raising and writing applications? We need to continue to fund raise for revenue and capital.
