Shelby Group cost plans were displayed during a public consultation into a full renovation of a Grade Two listed Victorian building in West Yorkshire. Bowman Riley Interiors displayed its visionary concept for the refurbishment of Queens Hall, which is situated in the picturesque village of Burley-in-Wharfedale, near Ilkley.

Burley Parish Council wants to develop the building into a vibrant community hub, with several different sized multi-purpose spaces for regular and occasional hire, catering facilities and a bar and zones for recreational sport and music. They would also like the building to serve as a police surgery and youth club and to have a public library.

Tom Shelley, Head of Interior Design at Bowman Riley, explained: “Our design concept is to enhance and extend the hall to create a modern, flexible building. We explored how each space could be used for various functions to maximise the efficiency of the building whilst meeting the needs of the various user groups with differing requirements.”

A 3D model and animation of the design was used at the public consultation event on Saturday 8th April. This is also available to view on Bowman Riley’s website: http://www.bowmanriley.com/news/queens-hall-burley-wharfedale/

Steve Tighe, Shelby Group’s Managing Director, said: “It was great to see the Shelby Group cost plans and Bowman Riley’s drawings on display at the Burley Queens Hall consultation workshop. Thanks again to Tom Shelley for inviting us to be part of this fantastic community project.”
