Carolyn Mutch

Project & Programmes Co-ordinator

Having spent the past twenty-five years working in two of my favourite sectors – heritage and the built environment, I can honestly say  I have been lucky. Despite weeks of cold weather in muddy trenches or up scaffolding at the start of my career, I am now in the fortunate position of reaping the rewards of past experience.

Within Tricolor I form part of the interpretation delivery team, ensuring a smooth transition for all stages of the project – from initial feasibility through to design and specification, costing, supply chain management, final fit-out and maintenance policies.

As a former building surveyor, I particularly enjoy the challenges that arise on interpretation projects – each is unique in its own way. What I have found is that they all provide an opportunity to gain new insights into what makes a good visitor experience. There is also a real necessity to work collaboratively with other specialists to create something that is both tangible and authentic.
