The Creative Youth Network is a successful charity helping young people in the Bristol area develop their potential particularly in the field of performing arts and related activities. The Creative Youth Network has acquired a major site in the centre of the City part of which comprises the Old Magistrates Court, an important Grade 2 listed building which is in very poor condition after years of neglect. Having completed the conversion of an adjacent building to provide facilities for youth activities and revenue generating uses CYN now wish to commence the development of the Old Magistrates Court as a second phase of its comprehensive development of the site to provide a combination of further facilities to support its work with young people. CYN wish to recruit a conservation architect led design team to take the project forward from feasibility stage to completion (RIBA Stages 1-7). The second phase has an anticipated construction cost of approximately 5 000 000 GBP and the CYN hope to largely complete the works by 2018. The works will include major repairs to the historic listed building fabric including its fine interior and the original courts and the alteration and adaptation of the building to accommodate the proposed new uses. The CYN will be seeking the funding from a wide range of sources including the Heritage Lottery Fund and will be using the initial feasibility documentation developed by the successful applicant to support these applications.
