Arts & Culture Centre - Phase 1 Concept Design & Market Trends Analysis

Phase 1 (January 2018 to May 2018) - extended to August 2018

In this phase of the project, we have two sub-projects that we will need your participation. They are the: (1) Concept Design and Feasibility Study and (2) Board Governance Framework development.

Concept Design and Feasibility Study

MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects has been selected through an RFP process, to work on the Concept Design and Feasibility Study. The project team will provide expertise and guidance in theatre and space planning design, market research and feasibility analysis.

As in the earlier phase of the project, your input will play an important role in helping to define the uses and needs of the space. A feasibility analysis and capital budget will be developed based on those needs/wants to be presented back to the Steering Committee for decision making in September 2018.

Three public stakeholder sessions were held on January 31, 2018, February 21, 2018, and on March 21, 2018, lead by MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects (MLSA). Input from these three sessions were taken into consideration by the MLSA to develop the Concept Design, Class D Construction Cost Estimate and Operating Model Assumptions.

Concept Design with Class D Construction Estimate (all costs) and Market Trends Analysis was presented in a public presentation on Thursday July 5, 2018.

Work left to be presented by MLSA Team is the Operating Cost Model and Economic Impact Analysis in August 2018.

Concept Design, Market Trends Analysis presentation can be found in the Document Library.

Board Governance Framework Development

Board Governance is one of the key factors in establishing a sustainable Arts and Culture Centre that must be held to high standards expected by the community, government funders and other stakeholders.

A Request for Proposal (RFP) has been issued (January 19, 2018) by the Town that will select a consultant to develop a Board Governance Framework. This project will involve participation from community stakeholders.

Public Consultation was held April 10, 2018.
