About Us

We offer project management services to the arts and community sectors, helping develop building projects from concept through to delivery. We help deliver the best quality buildings possible for people who share our values, at the lowest realistic cost and timeframe possible.

We also occasionally support clients on operational projects, particularly those working in the cultural sector. We have assisted clients in areas such as fundraising and event management, as well as offering training on the core principles of project management.

We love the fact that our job necessitates us getting to know creative teams of people in our community. We predominately work in the Northwest but in reality, we work wherever we find people we like. We’re passionate about adopting a flexible approach bespoke to each individual client and we take time to learn what’s best for you.

Siobhan Cotter-Burgess is founding director of Through & Around and has been in project management for 15 years.

Most recently Siobhan was lead consultant on the development and delivery of the Bluecoat Arts Centre front of house redevelopment, Liverpool city centre’s oldest Grade I listed building. Current clients include East End Women’s Museum in Barking, London and Venus Charity in Bootle.

Prior to T&A, Siobhan managed the development and launch of prodts within the specialist medical purposes sector which resulted in her developing global experience in programme, project and stakeholder management. As exciting as this sounds, Siobhan always yearned to put more of her time into making the world a better place and in 2015, decided to set up T&A with Sylvia Hebden (now at Arts Council England’s capital team) to work on the development of quality buildings within the Arts and Community sectors. Siobhan now partners with associates on projects where required. Siobhan is experienced in working with clients, understanding their particular needs and translating these to the project team,ultimately into a project which meets or exceeds expectations.

For her sins Siobhan is an Everton Fan which has given her the strength of character to take the rough with the slightly less rough. Along with ranting about football Siobhan also likes The West Wing, Politics and listening to Podcasts about The West Wing and Politics (and secretly Ru Paul’s Drag Race – don’t judge).
