Project Details

IPW is currently advising Wolverhampton City Council on the project to reopen the Wolverhampton Civic Halls, which has undergone a £36m renovation and is scheduled to reopen shortly.

We initially advised the Council on the key strategic and financial implications of different management options. We then studied the venue from an operational perspective to identify the capacities and best use of spaces within the venue, and their implications on the Council’s Business Case. We subsequently managed a competitive process to select an operating partner on a long-term lease, selecting AEG Presents.

IPW are currently retained by the Council to manage the interface between the Council, contractor, design team, and operator giving strategic insight to enable the venue to open as soon as possible.
