Leading heritage consultants and lottery mentors, Tricolor announce big wins and new services

Just like buses, five project wins come all at once for specialist heritage consultancy, Tricolor Associates. Since February, Tricolor has been awarded a range of contracts to help bring heritage to life for a wider range of audiences

Tricolor’s new projects range from upland commons in the four corners of England to cathedrals in Cornwall, 18th-century manor houses in East London to sports heritage museums in Surrey, ensuring the heritage development consultancy continues to go from strength-to-strength in its tenth anniversary year.

These projects also coincide with the Tricolor team officially launching their membership to Social Value UK, new services such as Social Impact Planning and Reporting and bespoke Evaluation Planning, Reporting and Training, which, after much research and client engagement, was a key issue in planning and evaluating projects through a truly outcomes-driven approach.

“As we enter our tenth year of trading, the Tricolor team really wanted to focus on bringing more value to our clients, mentoring them through sometimes tricky and complex issues, and support them with additional resource that will make a difference to them as people and organisation,” said Sarah Dowd, Managing Director of Tricolor. “Our mission is to change people’s lives through the past and we do that from the moment we start working with a new client.”


Our Common Cause: Our Upland Commons

Lake District, Shropshire Hills, Dartmoor and Yorkshire Dales

Project Details: Communications and Interpretation Planning

Enabling vulnerable communities to enhance iconic places

At the heart of England’s most loved and visited places are Commons; managed by commoners and the owners of common land. This management delivers a huge range of public benefits including biodiversity, archaeology, landscape, recreation, water and carbon. Unfortunately Commons’ natural and cultural heritage has declined and conflicts have arisen. Furthermore Brexit threatens the viability of commoning and the value of commons to society. Tricolor has been appointed to develop a Communications Strategy, redesign and launch the website and produce the Interpretation Plan to support the project’s Delivery Phase application to the National Lottery Development Fund.

“We chose Tricolor because we were impressed with the company’s professionalism and track record in heritage and with the National Lottery Heritage Fund in particular. We felt that they understood our needs and were genuinely interested in working with us!” said Joy Howells, Project Manager for Our Common Cause project.
