Working with L&R Consulting as an associate, Peter White was appointed to provide the Business Planning Role to Calderdale Council for the Piece Hall in Halifax. The council had recently secured HLF funding for a stage 2 bid to transform the building into a vibrant creative hub.
The capital scheme was estimated at £16m. Clearly we were delighted to have been selected following a competitive tendering exercise and were excited at the prospect of helping determine the future of this prestigious Grade I listed building, which is seen to be a major driver for the success of the town centre and of the cultural quarter in particular.
Peter White was responsible for preparing large sections of the business plan in particular all the revenue forecasting which was finally approved, releasing the funding for the restoration and development work to be undertaken.
