Having seen the physical size of Dean Clough Centre (Halifax) first hand I

there to house all the facilities you envisage for your NBBC.  Even if the
building is "Listed", which I expect it might be, might not preclude its
redevelopment/ adaptation as required.  Good luck with the thesis anyhow (&
be sure to let us all know if your ideas become living reality).
