Developer Cubex has completed its renovation of the historic space that will house Channel 4’s new Creative Hub at Finzels Reach, with striking new images offering a glimpse inside.
Finzels Reach is a new waterfront neighbourhood in Bristol being developed by Cubex with funding from Palmer Capital. Earlier this year, Channel 4 confirmed its plan to locate its new Creative Hub at Finzels Reach.
Now that Cubex has finished redeveloping the space, which is part of the characterful Fermentation Buildings, Channel 4 will forge ahead with its fit-out. Channel 4 expects to open its hub before Christmas.
Peter Walford, director at Bristol-based Cubex, says: “We are immensely proud to have attracted a major player like Channel 4 to Finzels Reach, joining the likes of Historic England, English Heritage and creative studio OUTLAW in the Fermentation Buildings.
“We have paid careful attention to restoring this heritage building, bringing it to life with stand-out, high quality design, whilst preserving its historic features and charm. We are very much looking forward to seeing the space in use soon, supporting the city’s burgeoning creative sector.”
Channel 4’s new Creative Hub in Bristol will be a base for key creative decision makers, supporting the company’s relationship with the production sector – with a particular focus on genres strongly represented in the South West, Wales and Midlands. Commissioning departments represented in the new Creative Hub in Bristol will include: Drama, Factual, Popular Factual – as well as Creative Diversity, supporting on and off-screen diversity. It will also have additional supporting operational roles.
