We’re looking for buildings experts to help NAC plan the future of our historic site.

NAC is seeking to commission a Site Development Options Appraisal to thoroughly explore options as to how the site can be developed to equip it for the next twenty years as Wolverhampton’s arts centre.

We are therefore seeking a suitably qualified and experienced Art Business Consultant and Heritage Architect to work together to undertake an options appraisal of the NAC site that explores ways to refurbish, reconfigure and possibly extend the building. Both should be experienced in advising and evaluating large capital projects and understand the issues concerning arts/community/heritage buildings.

The options appraisal will be used to evidence a decision to pursue one option into project development, as the basis of community consultation and to support
funding applications. The outcome we are looking for is an approach which will best equip the NAC site to serve as Wolverhampton’s centre for arts and culture for the next twenty years.

Timeframe and budget for work

June 2022 – recruitment process
July 2022 – successful bidder starts work
August-October 2022 – interviews, consultation events etc.
October 2022 – draft report presented to NAC board

For this work NAC has allowed a budget of £10,000 plus VAT. This budget may be split between the Arts Business Consultant and Heritage Architect or allocated to one company who can provide
both. The project is supported by the Architectural Heritage Fund and the successful applicant will need to provide AHF with any required reporting on the progress of the project.
