Blackpool Conference & Exhibition Centre

The Right Solution has worked with Blackpool Town Council and Visit Blackpool for several years, producing feasibility studies and site appraisal options for new convention facilities in the town. Ultimately, it was decided to build an extension to the Winter Gardens, which had itself had some refurbishment work done on the existing facilities. A design team was appointed, led by Bisset Adams Architects, with The Right Solution being an integral part of the team, as the specialist Conference Consultant. The initial work was to produce a comprehensive brief for the design team, was produced in September 2016 as a guide to aid the team in the design, which was approved by the client in mid-2017.

Simultaneously, The Right Solution was working with the client to produce the business plan for the proposed facilities, which was an integral part of the economic appraisal.

In May 2017, the main contractor was appointed, which is McLaughlin & Harvey, with whom we worked on the extension to the Belfast Waterfront Hall. The start on site for the project is August 2017, with completion and handover due for April 2019. The Right Solution will continue to work with the contractor, design team and the client to ensure that the completed facilities meet the needs of the end user, now and into the future.
