The Go-To Company in the Cultural Arts World

Venue has proven to be the go-to company in the cultural arts world when it comes to the best reputation for estimating, cost control and project management support for cultural arts projects. Facility Owners, Feasibility Consultants, Theatre and Museum Planners, Acousticians, Architects and Developers that all involved on a daily basis with these projects, regularly recommend Venue as the best qualified firm to keep a project in check from a cost perspective.

“Venue has been nothing short of miraculous in their ability to identify and analyze costs quickly and thoroughly and recommend solutions that preserve the integrity of both the Architect’s vision and the schedule and budget.

As the Project Director, I have only the highest regard and highest praise for the dedication and creativity that Venue has brought to the project. Their work ethic is first rate; they have never not been available when I called with a question – whether on weekend or holidays. Their reports are clear, concise and timely and create comfort around this project with our trustees; a not insignificant matter. Plus they are a pleasure to work with. They bring solutions to the table and do not stress at the complexity of teasing accurate per square footage costs out of the campus expansion’s many overlapping elements.”
