Section II: Object
Invited Design Competition for Architectural Design Services for the Development of New River Head
House of Illustration is the UK’s only public gallery devoted to the art of illustration.
It has recently purchased a 0,17 ha site at New River Head in Islington which includes a series of historically significant listed buildings that played a vital role in bringing fresh water to central London in the 18th century. The restoration and extension of the buildings will provide House of Illustration with up to 1 000 m2 of internal space for the relocation and expansion of its current operations.
Land and buildings to the rear of 28 Amwell Street, London, EC1R 1XY.
This will be a restricted process with expressions of interest followed by an invitation to tender for the appointment of an architect, who will lead the full design team and act as principal designer (under CDM regulations). Other design team members will include a structural engineer, relevant services engineers and a cost consultant who will be procured separately.
Applicants will be required to complete a selection questionnaire which will be used to select a shortlist of 5 suitable candidates to proceed to the invitation to tender phase.
The selection questionnaire is available from MyTenders together with a detailed brief.
Selection questionnaire including evaluation of technical and professional ability.
Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
Architect practice: the practice must include an architect who has the right to practice in the country where he/she is qualified or in the country where he/she currently resides or practices. UK-based candidates should therefore be registered with the Architects Registration Board (ARB) with overseas-based candidates registered with an equivalent regulatory body.
