Design and Build Services for the Construction of Fareham Arts, Entertainment and Community Venue
Fareham Borough Council have commenced an ambitious project to remodel the existing Ferneham Hall. This will include partial demolition of the existing building, internal remodelling, new build elements, addition of a fly tower and external landscaping works.
The vision for the remodelled venue is to provide a busy community arts and entertainment centre which includes daytime and evening activity, 7 days a week. This provision will be achieved through increased flexible community spaces, improved catering areas as well as a flexible studio space and secondary, smaller performance space.
A main 800 seat auditorium will enable the transformed venue to attract and host a good range of touring productions as well as being available for hire to local amateur groups. The dynamic and innovative approach to programming will attract a wider range of customers to the venue and as result of its continued popularity the annual pantomime will be retained and developed as part of the overall revised programme offer.
The developed design of the building, the interior and exterior, will be attractive, modern and welcoming. Complementary to the other new buildings that will present themselves within the Civic Quarter.
