Having played a key role in the definition, creation and funding of the project for the redevelopment of Nottingham Castle, Focus Consultants is very pleased to see work now starting on site to transform the castle into a world-class visitor destination.
Focus was the lead consultant working on the successful bid which secured a First Round Pass of almost £13m from the Heritage Lottery Fund – providing project management, bid writing, business planning and cost advice services to develop the successful bid.
Partner at Focus Consultants, Steven Fletcher, said: “Focus was proud to be involved in helping to develop this hugely significant scheme for Nottingham Castle, and in securing a large amount of funding for the project, which will revitalise the castle and attract thousands of new visitors to the city.
“It’s great to see work now under way on site and we look forward to the reopening of the castle following completion in 2020.”
Around £30m is being spent on adding new attractions and major updates of the castle over the next two years. The Castle Transformation Project is being funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, D2N2, Nottingham Castle Trust and Nottingham City Council.
