RISE is set to project manage the Modern Art Oxford revamp and an impressive £5.5m has been set aside to remodel the Pembroke premises in 2017.
RISE’s main role will be to oversee the project delivery which includes: the provision of a large auditorium, six storey staircase and lift, courtyard and visitor facilities as well as a refurbished café, opening up higher level floors and back of house space. The changes are being implemented in an attempt to increase the number of visitors annually.
Paul Hobson, Gallery Director sees this as
“the perfect moment to embark on an ambitious redevelopment of this historic building, to ensure the gallery’s commitment to audiences and artists in the future.”
RISE is thrilled to be part of such a historical project rich in culture and heritage. It is very important to us to give back to the communities we work in through the sharing our knowledge and this project provides an excellent opportunity for RISE to so.
