DESIGN, BUILD AND OPERATION OF A FABRICATION LABORATORY IN BLACKBURN TOWN CENTRE
The Council owns a vacant two storey building in a prime town centre location adjacent to the Town Hall and Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery. This building was originally used as a Bank and subsequently converted to ‘Bentleys’ a bar/restaurant before closing for business.

 

Due to its close proximity to the Town Hall, the Museum, the Library, Blackburn College, significant public car parking facilities, the Mall and town centre shops, this building was identified as a key site for development to support the overarching aims of the ‘12 point plan’ to regenerate Blackburn town centre.

 

After having completed a substantial amount of research into Fabrication Laboratories, it became apparent that Bentley’s would provide an ideal location for a ‘Fab Lab’ alongside a range of complementary facilities. The brand for this facility is ‘The Making Rooms’.

 

The Council is seeking a provider to Design, Build and Operate the Making Rooms.
