PMP Consultants are delighted to announce that we have won the competitive tender for the Jewellery Quarter Townscape Heritage scheme acting as quantity surveyors.
The £2 million heritage project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), consists of six private-sector developments which are all statutory listed and located within the ‘Industrial Middle’ of the Jewellery Quarter Conservation Area. The funding will enable the Jewellery Quarter Development Trust (JQDT) to offer restoration grants to owners as part of the Jewellery Quarter Townscape Heritage scheme (JQTH), allowing essential conservation repairs to the buildings which are currently in a poor state of condition. This will ultimately bring vacant floor-space back into use, while sensitively refurbishing the buildings.
The objective of a Townscape Heritage scheme is to regenerate and transform conservation areas in need of investment, with the aim to create an attractive, vibrant and interesting place where people will want to live, work and invest; the JQTH project will run for three years from February 2018 until February 2021.
PMP has extensive experience of similar HLF funded projects and the successful delivery of heritage projects in particular, and we are very familiar with the unique nature of working in the Jewellery Quarter, having worked on many historic buildings in the area very recently.
We’re very much looking forward to working alongside the JQDT and getting to know these fascinating buildings a bit better especially as the scheme’s in an area we’re especially passionate about – our office is located in the Jewellery Quarter after all. There is something special about a Jewellery Quarter building; its history, its appearance and its character, and we can’t wait to help transform these buildings, bringing them back to their former glory once again.
Senior Director at PMP, Martin Rowe said:
“it is a real joy to play another small part in improving the JQ area, bringing back to life buildings in need of that little bit of extra assistance, for a viable and successful future”
