Phoenix project role for BSP Consulting

Phoenix Leicester
September 17, 2019

BSP Consulting is delighted to hear that Phoenix in Leicester is to receive £4 million of National Lottery money invested by Arts Council England towards Phoenix 2020 – a scheme to expand its current building and become a four-screen independent cinema in 2020.

BSP prepared a Transport Statement for the successful planning application for the development after being appointed by Focus Consultants, project manager for Phoenix.

The plans include a 1,200 square metre extension added to the existing building. This will make space for two further cinema screens; a larger and more prominent digital art gallery with an atrium; a bigger café bar; and new spaces for making and learning.

Architects Arcadis, working with Phoenix, drew up the plans for the £7 million development of the site, based in Midland Street in the Cultural Quarter of Leicester.
