UNIMED Site & Building

Location:

Gloucester Street, City Centre

Date:

2013

From gravel-pit to brand new internal space.

LiVS became involved with the UNIMED building in 2013. At that stage it was still a gravel site where the former building had been demolished. Over this period, a number of projects took part on the site including a sculpture and many short-term events. We were given notice to allow the new building to be built.

In 2015 we once again signed a licence to help activate the ground floor with creative and entrepreneurial projects. This was LiVS’ first internal space and started a period which saw us fill some of the new but empty office and retail spaces in the CBD.

LiVS is very grateful to the landowners who enabled us to use this space; we were involved with the UNIMED building/site for nearly 7 years.
