Battersea Arts Centre risen from the ashes
In March 2015, while undertaking a redevelopment of their premises, Battersea Arts Centre (BAC) suffered a major fire, destroying most of their precious 19th century Grand Hall. A community space for artists and theatre productions; events and more, the Grand Hall is BAC’s most prominent feature, both in terms of heritage and income.
Since the fire, we have worked in collaboration with BAC, their broker, the appointed loss adjusters and architects to rebuild and transform the centre, allowing them to reinstate in a way that was tailored to their needs; creating a better space which has enabled them to open up new opportunities for the community.
Four years on, we visited those who were closely involved in the claims process, from BAC staff to our Aviva claims handler.
