HQ conversion puts builders front and centre of Bristol’s gig economy

Festival proprietors The Circus of Boom is taking over the former Trimite building off Feeder Road in Bristol as a new headquarters.
The highly contemporary arts and music stage set pioneers have appointed fast-growing Bristol builders Helm Construction to convert the former powder coating plant.
Helm Construction head of business development Chris Catley said: “The old Trimite building will make a fantastic permanent base for the Circus of Boom – which moves from venue to venue staging some amazing shows in front of the biggest audiences.
“Their eye-catching stages are in demand for shows and their own festivals across the country.”
The prominent Trimite building offers six and a half thousand sq. ft. of space with a pitched roof of almost ten meters – enough to house the most ambitious set designs.1
“The former powder coating plant is part of Bristol’s industrial landscape and it’s great to think we can help bring it back into the public realm. Close to the centre of Bristol it reflects Circus of Boom’s highly contemporary urban connections.
“We’re keen to expand our commercial portfolio and this high-profile project helps us reach a whole new community within Bristol.”
