The Bridge Arts Centre is a new learning resource within the Easterhouse area just outside Glasgow. Sited between an existing swimming pool and the John Wheatley College, the building literally bridges the gap with new arts and educational facilities.
The vast number of local-authority and other stakeholders in the project presented the design and construction team with huge communication challenges to ensure that all were kept engaged and positive throughout the project’s long gestation.
By adopting a form of partnering outside of and distinct from the project contract, the delivery team was able to cut through problems to focus on the needs of the user.
