Engine Shed
Ideas, action, results

With some of the South West’s major players involved, the team behind the Engine Shed were brimming with ideas. They needed help developing their vision and ensuring the new venture would make the right impact.

Every organisation involved in this new networking hub had an agenda. Bristol City Council, Bath University, University of Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset Council, the Local Enterprise Partnership, and the architects designing the site at Temple Meads – all wanted the Engine Shed to be a gateway for enterprise and innovation, but each had different ideas about what that meant.

“Peloton’s Marquer process really helped us steer a route through different messages and values, and develop the relationship between our physical building and the project.

A suitably structured process that brought the different stakeholders along a path – and helped us understand more about what we wanted to achieve. Very much an integral tool to help us develop our mission, as opposed to a function at the end of it.”

Online and print advertising coupled with a new website and online booking system brought significant attention to the Engine Shed when it launched, helping this new venture to make a lasting mark.

The venture has proved such a resounding success that the Engine Shed has expanded into a neighbouring plot, with 20 shipping containers re-imagined into workspaces for creative, technology and media industries.
