We are very pleased to announce that Guy Smith has become an Associate. He joined Bauman Lyons in March 2003 and has been making invaluable contribution to all aspects of our works ever since.
Bauman Lyons secured a site and a planning permission to build two managed workspace units in the multicultural and vibrant area of Chapeltown in Leeds. We are planning to move in by November 2006 and to rent the remaining space to creative industries businesses.
The Flaxengate/Danesgate Creative Workspace Development by Lincoln City Council was granted Planning permission in April 2005. The project is located in the heart of historic Lincoln and adjacent to the nearly completed Collection Museum. The complex of three buildings comprises managed arts and crafts studios and media offices as well as meeting rooms and a cafe.
The refurbishment of York Art Gallery has been completed with a grand opening on March 17th 2005. The project is seen as a quick win to stimulate futher extensive development work.

Woodroyd Centre, Bradford has now been given the go ahead and construction will commence in June. The project has been tendered at £4.5 million and will be built by Allenbuild. Constuction will take one year.
