Construction phase of Kettering’s GLaM project to start

The construction stage of the GLaM project – which will see improvements and alterations to Kettering’s Library, Gallery and Museum – is starting soon on site.

This North Northamptonshire Council scheme secured £3million from the Getting Building Fund, administered by SEMLEP with match-funding from the council.

The project, which will provide the community with new and upgraded facilities, flexible events and workshop space, was given planning approval in January this year.

Kerry Purnell, North Northamptonshire Council assistant director for of Housing and Communities, said: “GLaM – is a significant project for the town. The improvements to this cultural hub will bring a great deal of enjoyment for residents as well as supporting the local economy.

“Cultural-led regeneration is a fundamental element of delivering Kettering Town Centre’s vision to be a vibrant place at the heart of the community that is characterful, distinctive, and fun.”

GSSArchitecture is leading on the architectural design to transform the facilities, which will improve a valuable visitor destination for Kettering.

The site will provide a dedicated business support area to expand the existing British Library led Business & IP Centre Northamptonshire, which provides entrepreneurs and small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) with free access to a wide range of support.
